Lulu, a sprightly little mouse, is particularly fond of her red pajamas: “They smell as good as a pink dream. They are as soft as a butterfly kiss.” So she decides to never take them off, and that means wearing her pajamas to school. The other kids laugh, but that isn’t the worst part of Lulu’s private pajama party. Food gets on her jammies, and so do paint and dirt. By the end of the day, Lulu decides never to wear her pj’s again. But what to do when her parents won’t tell her a bedtime story while she is wearing a ballerina outfit? This small story is charming in every way, from Lulu’s first-person, childlike narrative to the simple yet elegant ink-and-watercolor drawings of the mouse family. Even the rather inexplicable presence of Lulu’s pet ladybug is adorable. Besides all the style, this will serve a practical purpose for parents whose own little listeners have some outlandish outfits they want to wear—or refuse to take off. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper
