Overview

A pajama-loving Polly is in for a surprise as she scrambles to find the right party outfit in this sweet, child-friendly tale.

Polly adores her pink pajamas. She wears them all day long! But of course she can’t wear them to Fred’s party, so all her friends lend her something of theirs. Just as she’s ready to leave, Polly catches a look in the mirror — and somehow the too-short polka-dot dress and tiny checkered cardigan and the long striped socks don’t make the fashion statement she’d hoped for. With fun, free-spirited illustrations and a simple story, here’s a humorous tale for young children who love to dress up — and those who decidedly don’t.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Polly loves her pink pajamas so much that she wears them all day, everyday. An invitation to friend Fred's party gets her thinking about what she could wear. She has no other clothes so she borrows a red polka-dot dress from Mia, a green, checkered sweater from Jo, Harry's colorful striped socks, and Claire's blue shiny shoes. Once dressed, tears flow as she realizes that everything is much too small except the shoes. They are too big. When Fred phones to remind her that it is a pajama party, Polly abandons her uncomfortable attire and hurries to the party in her favorite pink pajamas. This slight story is awash in color, notably pink. Little red hearts in pink and red accompany each page that features each new colorful article of clothing Polly acquires. Polly is charming, and although the book might be alive with color and energy, it is not enough to support a weak story. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
Kirkus Reviews
Polly loves her PJs, but when Fred invites her to a party, she is at a loss as to what to wear, so she calls her friends for some help. Heap uses color to great effect in this slight story. The eponymous PJs have rosy stripes, squiggles and hearts, and Polly's chair, slippers and walls are also pink. Fred is in grays and blues. Mia, who lends Polly a polka-dot dress for the party, favors red. Harry likes multicolored stripes-even his cat is striped. Claire has blue shoes to lend and blue glasses. But when Polly is all dressed in her borrowed finery, she sees that none of it really fits. Tears ensue, but Fred calls to remind her that it is a-wait for it-PAJAMA party, so Polly can wear what she loves best. All the friends who were willing to lend Polly stuff are at the party in their special colors. The crayon-and-acrylic illustrations are full of candy colors and cheery shapes (a lot of hearts), and it is hard to fault any story that ends with pizza. (Picture book. 4-7)
