Pajama Day

by Lynn Plourde
Illustrated by Thor Wickstrom
Dutton Children’s Books, 2005

It was Pajama Day at school, and everyone
in Mrs. Shepherd’s class arrived wearing their
favorite fuzzy-wuzzy PJs.
Everyone, that is, except . . .

Drew A. Blank.

Drew had forgotten what day it was. In fact,
Drew might have forgotten his own name if it
hadn’t been written on his hand as a reminder.

Drew not only forgets his pajamas, but also his slippers–so he puts a glove and mitten from the lost-and-found pile on his feet. He forgets his breakfast snack for Pajama Day too–so he whips up some pancakes (as well as a mess) with the cook in the cafeteria. Drew forgets his teddy bear and pillow from home too. What does he use for those so he won’t be the odd man out in the classroom? But more importantly, how does Drew’s forgetfulness save the day at the end of the story?
