Publisher's Summary

Corduroy was first introduced to readers in 1968, and in the fifty years since, his adventures have never stopped.

Corduroy has been on the department store shelf for a long time. Yet as soon as Lisa sees him, she knows that he’s the bear for her. Her mother, though, thinks he’s a little shopworn—he’s even missing a button! Still, Corduroy knows that with a bit of work he can tidy himself up and be just the bear for Lisa. And where better to start than with a nighttime adventure through the department store, searching for a new button!

Celebrate 50 years of this irresistible childhood classic, a heartwarming story about a little bear and a little girl finding the friend they have always wanted in each other.

The Goodfather

Husband. Father. Children's Book Critic Extraordinaire:)

A tender, classic children's book. Both Corduroy and the young girl who sees his value are wonderful characters. The soft water colors, the nostalgia of a historic department store, the coziness of a small bedroom in a city apartment—and, of course, a well-intentioned, helpless little bear—all combine to make this the classic, beloved story it is.
