Corduroy is a bear who once lived in a toy department of a big store. Day after day he waited with all the other animals and dolls for somebody to come along and take him home. (from the first line)
A toy bear in a department stores wants many things, but when a little girl finally buys him, he finds what he wanted most of all.
From the Publisher:
Corduroy, a lonely bear in green overalls, must first find his lost button before he can be Lisa's very own bear.
Annotation:
A shelf-worn stuffed bear sits in the toy section of a department store, forlorn and unwanted. Then a little girl sees him, and wants to own him and care for him. But before she takes him home, Corduroy has a little adventure. Color illustrations accompany the text.A gentle stuffed bear who wears a pair of green overalls, Corduroy sits on a shelf in the toy section of a large department store, eagerly awaiting the day that someone will decide to buy him and bring him home. He thinks that day has finally come when a young girl named Lisa picks him up and declares that he's the very bear she's always wanted. Sadly, however, Lisa's mother refuses to buy Corduroy because his overalls are missing a shoulder strap button. Down but not out, Corduroy waits for the store to close, and under cover of the night, he searches the entire department store for his missing button--a big adventure for such a little bear. Although he doesn't find his button, Corduroy does eventually find a home, as Lisa returns to the store early the next morning to purchase him with her own savings. Gently playing with the common childhood belief that toys have feelings and adventures of their own, CORDUROY is a comforting story that proves that everyone deserves, and will eventually find, a loving home of their own. Color illustrations accompany the text.
Author Bio
Don Freeman
As a young man, Don Freeman was torn between becoming an illustrator or a musician. He found himself forced to choose illustration after he mistakenly left his trumpet on the subway one night after being caught up in sketching the other passengers. Needing money, he began to submit illustrations to the New York Herald Tribune and his career began. He wrote his first book for children, CHUGGY AND THE BLUE CABOOSE, in 1951 with his wife, Lydia, for their son Roy. Freeman wrote for both children and adults and also illustrated the works of such authors as William Saroyan and James Thurber. He may be best remembered for his creation of the picture book CORDUROY, in which a department store bear hopes that someone will buy him and give him a real home.
