CorduroyIs 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 so you may also want to seek out Dan Freeman's next creation A Pocket for Corduroy Ages 3 to Corduroy was one of my childhood favorites and I still love it I am struggling to write an adeuate review and since I am pressed for time I will just say for now that I love everything about it I feel all the emotions are conveyed so well from Corduroy's loneliness to the girl's sense of finding a kindred spirit in the bear to Corduroy's wish to find the button to make himself appealing to his glorious adventure oh how I loved that escalator mountain and the many fabulous mattresses and tugging and tugging to get that button off to the fright with the night watchman and finally Lisa coming back with her own money to bring Corduroy home and sewing on the button not because she felt anything was wrong with him but so he would feel comfortable I love the end with the realization of what it feels like to have a true friend And the illustrations have always captivated meI am so grateful a GoodReads friend alerted me to the 40th Anniversary edition It is just wonderful I love the format with the letters between Don and his editor being real letters you can pull out of envelopes and facsimile versions at that and the glimpse into the writer editor relationship The manuscript draft where his editor makes her comments is so enlightening and would interest anyone who is or is interested in being a writer I think it's great to see that even genius authors like Don Freeman needed that collaboration and other insight to make their work truly sparkle The only thing I didn't really like in the format is that it seemed really jarring to go from the vivid correspondence to turning the page and seeing it covered with newspaper clipping of Freeman's obituary Though it did provide some great insight into facets of his life I guess I would have liked something a bit gentler I also would have liked to know a bit about the children to whom he dedicated the book and spoke of in his correspondence I guess they might be relations of the editor perhaps All in all though I highly recommend the 40th Anniversary edition to anyone who is a fan of the book or looking at a bygone era of author editor relationships
