The Problem with Pajamas

Illustrated by Lauren Stohler

About The Book

From the author-illustrator of The Best Worst Poet Ever comes a delightfully zany and hilarious picture book about a young girl’s campaign against uncomfortable pajamas.

Pajamas are the worst! They zap you! They trap you! They scritch and they scratch you! And then, when you think it can’t get any worse, they make your feet sweat.

Cody has had enough of wrinkly socks, itchy sweaters, and too-tight pants, so she’s definitely not going to wear PJs to bed. But Dad has a soft, snuggly plan that just might help Cody realize some pajamas aren’t so awful after all.

Raves and Reviews

"This perfect bedtime read is also a lovely example of a father-daughter relationship and a reminder that children need to be able to express their true feelings and be treated with patience and understanding."
 

– School Library Journal

"Stohler’s (The Best Worst Poet Ever) story of underthings and understanding has all the marks of a well-crafted sitcom: a magnetic star player, an endearing supporting cast, expertly placed comic beats, and lots of jaunty dialogue."
 

– Publishers Weekly
