It's Pajama Day at school, when everyone in Mrs. Shepherd's class wears fuzzy slippers, eats a special breakfast snack, and lies down for reading time. Everyone, that is, except Drew A. Blank. Drew has forgotten his slippers, his snack, his teddy bear, and his pillow-he even forgot to wear pajamas! Drew would forget his own name if he didn't have it written on his hand as a reminder. He doesn't want to be the odd man out, so he comes up with all kinds of ingenious ways to join in the day's events. But later he has the nagging feeling he's forgetting something else. . . . Will he remember what it is in time?

Thor Wickstrom and Lynn Plourde are the team that created two other well-received books about Mrs. Shepherd's class. Mr. Wickstrom lives in Hancock, Massachusetts.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2 - The creators of School Picture Day (2002) and Teacher Appreciation Day (2003, both Dutton) have produced another winner. Despite numerous sticky notes applied to various parts of his body, Drew A. Blank has forgotten all of the things he was asked to bring to class for Pajama Day. Undaunted by his forgetfulness and not wanting to be the "odd man out," the boy uses his imagination and arrives at some inventive solutions to supply the needed items. He places mismatched mittens on his feet to serve as slippers and even dresses up the class guinea pig so he can participate in the teddy bear play. A tongue-in-cheek explanation for Drew's forgetfulness is offered at the end of the book when his mother picks him up from school and chauffeurs him on a frenzied round of activities that would interfere with anyone's concentration. As with the other two titles, part of the humor lies in the over-the-top improbability of the situation. Wickstrom's cheery watercolor cartoons, depicting a multiethnic class, add to the fun. Pajama Day won't be a sleeper. - Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
