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, so you may also want to seek out Dan Freeman's next creation, A Pocket for Corduroy. (Ages 3 to 8) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
A winning, completely childlike picture book in which a stuffed bear waiting hopefully in a toy department finds a home with a little black girl. Endearing, brightly colored pictures. -- Booklist --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I don't think this deserved only 4 stars, but maybe it deserved 4.5 stars. Corduroy, cute as he is with his removable overalls, doesn't have any buttons! Just stitched knots where they should be. The poor guy goes through his whole story, only to find himself with a loving little girl - and no buttons in real life. So I sewed some on, because who is Corduroy without his buttons?
The book is perfect Big thick pages. perfect for small petite hands, minimum risk of them getting a papercut. (it's cardboard lol)
My only complaint is how it was shipped (but i will not deduct stars for delivery, that is unrelated to the product itself)
