Corduroy by Don Freeman
Synopsis from Amazon: "Have you ever dreamed of being locked in a department store at night? The endearing story of Corduroy paints a picture of the adventures that might unfold (for a teddy bear at least) in such a situation. When all the shoppers have gone home for the night, Corduroy climbs down from the shelf to look for his missing button. It's a brave new world! He accidentally gets on an elevator that he thinks must be a mountain and sees the furniture section that he thinks must be a palace. He tries to pull a button off the mattress, but he ends up falling off the bed and knocking over a lamp. The night watchman hears the crash, finds Corduroy, and puts him back on the shelf downstairs. The next morning, he finds that it's his lucky day! A little girl buys him with money she saved in her piggy bank and takes him home to her room. Corduroy decides that this must be home and that Lisa must be his friend. Youngsters will never get tired of this toy-comes-alive tale with a happy ending"
My Review: I absolutely adore Corduroy. Its a great book and the pictures are wonderful. I think this book as why I always wanted the poor stuffed animals at the store (I always picked the ones that had a problem like a crooked nose or missing the stitching for the mouth). I couldn't imagine anyone not loving this book! We all need to feel loved even though we might be missing a button or two, with friends everything is better.
My Rating: I think Corduroy deserves Four Paws!
Good Night, Sweet Dreams
