An AMAZING accomplishment in children's literature!
on January 1, 2009
As owner of a children's bookstore, mother of 5, and LONG time fan of Don Freeman's books, I have often wished he had written more than 2 books about Corduroy!
Many favorite characters from children's literature have suffered at the hands of commercial endeavors and adaptations (think Curious George, Winnie the Pooh and even Corduroy), but this book is the exception.
The collaborators have made a thoughtful contribution to Don Freeman's legacy in EVERY way. The story line is completely true to the originals -- and the illustrations completely capture the feel of the original books.
What a fun project this must have been... and what a great accomplishment!! I own the book and will be buying up more before it goes out of print, which I suspect it will unless more Corduroy fans find out about it quickly.
