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.

My toddler loves Corduroy and A Pocket for Corduroy, unfortunately many of the newer Corduroy books are not similar to Don Freeman's original two Corduroy stories, but Corduroy Lost and Found is. This book is has the same scratch drawings and similar text as Freeman's original Corduroy books and my daughter really enjoys the story of Corduroy's adventure to find the perfect birthday present for Lisa. Recommended for fans of the original Corduroy books.

This is the second book I bought for my daughter as she sees Corduroy on tivo and she asked me for the books. It's a nice story about a night time escape of Cordoroy in order to find a gift for Lisa's birthday.
It's perfect before going to sleep as it's short but has a good plot. It's one of the books I read and reread to my daughter as she always asks me. She likes very much the idea of the bear going alone and then the happy end. The illustration are also nice.

I bought this book for my daughter not long after she received "Corduroy" and "A Pocket for "Corduroy" for Christmas. She loved the first 2 books and is just as pleased with this one. The Corduroy books are frequent bedtime stories in this house!

The illustrations in this book were good enough that my 2 year old son could tell when Corduroy was happy, sad, scared, and then happy once more. Reading emotions on others' faces is a necessary skill for a child to learn and this book is great for helping kids develop empathy and sympathy.

We have a nearly two year old grandson that loves books and has a library of favorites. I enjoy getting him a new one every month. This one was a favorite he found at the library and now it is in his library.

We found that this newer Corduroy the bear story follows nicely with the original two Corduroy stories that we enjoyed years ago.

I bought this book for my daughter when she was a couple months shy of 2 along with Corduroy and Pocket for Corduroy.
She is 2.5 now and we have read all three books to the point where both of us have them memorized.

It is a sweet story of Corduroy getting lost while trying to get the perfect birthday present for Lisa. He finally settles for the moon which he thinks is a big balloon.

This book is just as good as the two original Corduroy books by Don Freeman. I just wish there were more!.

I haven't read it all yet. I'm sure it will be good. My grandchildren and I will discover this one together when it is time. It might be a little scary for the little one.

I was a Corduroy fan as a child. It is exciting to see my child reading the same books that I had back 30 years ago. She loves these books. This is an exact reprint of one I had as a child. We highly recommend it as we do all in this series. My 28 month old is obsessed with Corduroy and his friend Lisa. A great gift for a child ages 2-6.
