A classic holiday story about a teddy bear loved by children for 50 years.
 
It’s almost Christmas and Corduroy sits on a department store shelf, wishing 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, and the perfect way to celebrate Corduroy's 50th anniversary.

About the Author:

B.G. Hennessy grew up in Wantagh on Long Island, NY. At the University of Wisconsin in Madison, she majored in fine art and learned how to design, print and bind handmade books. She also took courses in Children’s Literature. The combination of form and content in the picture book format fascinated her and after graduation she headed for NYC where she worked for 17 years in children’s book publishing as a designer and art director. She is the author of Road Builders and The First Night, as well as many books starring Corduroy, the loveable toy bear created by Don Freeman. She now lives with her family in Arizona.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2—Sure to become another favorite, this prequel tells the story of how the character Corduroy, created by Don Freeman in the 1960s, found his green overalls and how the button on the overalls got loose. As the tale begins, the little stuffed bear has no name or clothes. Upon hearing that Santa grants Christmas wishes and that one should wear something special when they meet the famous man in red, the little bear goes on his first journey to meet Santa and finds the perfect outfit for the occasion. Readers will have an "A-ha" moment when the little bear finds his outfit as well as when Santa first calls him "Corduroy." Wheeler works her magic in the illustrations, bringing the adorable bear to life. A charming addition to the "Corduroy" series (Viking) and holiday collections.—Diane Olivo-Posner, Los Angeles Public Library, CA
