Lulu’s Pajamas

Lulu the mouse adores her favourite pajamas so much that she decides to never ever take them off. She comes to reconsider her decision when her pajamas are covered with paint, glue, dust and food at the end of a school day. This charming tale was first published in French as Mon pyjama à moi.

Young Lulu has the best Mama and Papa in the world and the best pet ladybug, Lili-Poo. After her Mama tells her a story and her Papa sings a goodnight song, Lulu drifts gently off to sleep in her favorite soft-as-a-butterfly-kiss pajamas. In the morning she decides “never ever” to take them off again! What will she do when her friends laugh and her beloved pajamas show the scars of a busy day at school? Suddenly Lulu can hardly recognize her pajamas, and they sure don't smell like a pink dream anymore.

Lulu's spirited, independent handling of a childhood rite of passage - choosing one's own clothes - will resonate with both children and parents. Irresistible illustrations and Lulu's note-perfect child's voice will make Lulu's Pajamas a bedtime favorite sure to become as well-worn as an old pair of pajamas.
