Synopsis

The Magic Pyjamas by Karen Wallace

The Magic Pyjamas is an exciting story for all adventure fans who are beginning to read independently. It is perfect for children aged 4+ who are reading at orange band 6. Jack cannot get to sleep. It is just too boring! Then Granny sends him some magic pyjamas and the adventure really begins! The Froglets series is perfect for children aged 5-7 who are reading on their own, with fun stories of no more than 200 words. A reading game at the end of each book encourages retelling the story and boosting vocabulary. Compiled in consultation with Catherine Glavina, Early Years Course Leader, The Centre for Professional Education, University of Warwick.

About the Author

Karen Wallace

I was born in Canada and grew up in a log cabin in Quebec. My childhood was spent playing in the forests and messing about on the Gatineau River. It was a wonderful wild time and in many ways is the source of all of my writing. Children's writers are an eccentric bunch. Someone once said they never grow up and in many ways, this is probably true in my case.
I write books for children from five to fifteen years old. The ability to recall how you felt and what your world was like at a particular point in your childhood is something that all children's writers share. It's like pushing a rewind switch and going back in time. Many of my natural history books for children, like THINK OF AN EEL, which won awards on both sides of the Atlantic, IMAGINE YOU ARE A TIGER, or I AM A TYRANNOSAURUS REX all reflect my own sense of wonder exploring the woods and the river around me when I was a child. Years later, I wrote about this childhood in my first novel RASPBERRIES ON THE YANGTZE, which was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Prize.
