Everyone loves Pyjama Day!

It's pyjama day at school, and Andrew has brought the perfect pair of pyjamas to wear. They feel perfect, they smell perfect, and they even taste perfect. In fact, they are so perfect that as soon as he puts them (yawn) . . . on (yawn) . . . he falls into a deep, deep (zzzzzzz) sleep.

Everyone tries to wake him - his friends, the teachers, his sister - but no luck! Is it possible that a perfect pair of pyjamas can make you miss morning recess, lunchtime, AND afternoon recess?

Celebrate everyone's favourite school day Robert Munsch-style, with this funny take on just how cozy a perfect pair of pyjamas can be!
