The Magic Pyjamas

Keira had magic pyjamas that let her travel to any world she could imagine. She would travel to Naboo, or to a world where they sold lollipops that could make you feel happy or silly, or a world where sharks were friendly and could talk and were almost always up for a game of Chinese Checkers if you brought the board down to the shore. She would travel to a world where icicles sang as they melted, or where fish published full color magazines, or to one where they had invented a machine that turned sneezes into really good ideas. The way the pyjamas worked was like this – she would put them on, she would brush her teeth, and before her eyes had even finished shutting she was running through ankle-deep iced coffee while whales flew through the cold air above her.
