Join us for a special storytime with author and illustrator B.G. Hennessey, who presents her new Corduroy book, a Christmas prequel to Don Freeman's classic picture book that shows how the iconic stuffed bear in the green overalls got his name.
Before he met Lisa, Corduroy was just a little bear in the toy department of a big store, waiting for somebody to take him home. It's almost Christmas and Corduroy wishes he could be a child's holiday gift--but he's a plain bear, and nobody seems to notice him. He sets out across the store to ask Santa Claus for help, but he can't visit without wearing a special outfit! After stopping to try on hats, boots, and even baby clothes, Corduroy finally arrives at the North Pole. Can Santa help Corduroy find a new home in time for Christmas?
With warm humor and classic art, A Christmas Wish For Corduroy takes readers back to the beginning and shows how Corduroy became the beloved bear we know today. This is a heartwarming story about the power of hope, perseverance, and friendship--an important addition to any Corduroy collection.
B.G. Hennessey also visits Phoenix on Thursday, December 11 »
