* A 2012 B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree * From the Midwest Book Review: “The Pajama Elves” is a delightful, creatively presented holiday tale that shares a family tradition of giving children magic pajamas secretly tailored by Santa’s sewing elves, so they can sleep snug in their beds on Christmas Eve. Hayden Edwards is a special pseudonym for author/illustrator Julie Szabo, combining the names of her two sons and husband. Told in verse narrative and creatively illustrated with combination photos/prints in color, “The Pajama Elves” is all about keeping the magic of Christmas alive for young children. The author describes it as follows: “‘The Pajama Elves’ allows people to adopt and personalize the tradition in many ways, and it can be shared with family members who live far apart from one another.” Sensitively done, “The Pajama Elves” is an ideal contemporary response to unique challenges faced by parents of young children today.

I will keep it and maybe read it to her when she’s older. My eleven year old thought it was just ok and was excited about the idea of new pajamas, but not the concept of the pajama elves. The book arrived with a creased front cover…

Christmas Magic! (even with the terrible book art) This is an adorable idea and an awesome bit of magic to add to Christmas. I love it! BUT I really wish the book was illustrated better. I know the little elves in the book are probably the author’s children and it’s sentimental for her, but I feel like this could become a Christmas classic with some great illustration. For my family the illustrations are just as important in a children’s book and the story itself. I love the story and the tradition the book brings to Christmas, but I hate the…
