Synopsis: One day Corduroy finds a wounded baby bird in his yard. He takes the bird to his neighbor, Mr. Johnson, who helps rescue wild animals. Mr. Johnson teaches Corduroy how to care for the little bird, and for the other animals at his shelter. In the end, when Mr. Johnson's cat has kittens, Corduroy finds himself with his very own pet.

This engaging book has over 30 fun flaps for children to lift. It teaches an important lesson about caring for animals in need, and it has a satisfying ending sure to please young animal-lovers.

About the Author: Don Freeman was born in San Diego, California, in 1908. At an early age, he received a trumpet as a gift from his father. He practiced obsessively and eventually joined a California dance band. After graduating from high school, he ventured to New York City to study art under the tutelage of Joan Sloan and Harry Wickey at the Art Students' League. He managed to support himself throughout his schooling by playing his trumpet evenings, in nightclubs and at weddings.

Gradually, he eased into making a living sketching impressions of Broadway shows for The New York Times and The Herald Tribune. This shift was helped along, in no small part, by a rather heartbreaking incident: he lost his trumpet. One evening, he was so engrossed in sketching people on the subway, he simply forgot it was sitting on the seat beside him. This new career turned out to be a near-perfect fit for Don, though, as he had always loved the theater.

He was introduced to the world of children���s literature when William Saroyan asked him to illustrate several books. Soon after, he began to write and illustrate his own books, a career he settled into comfortably and happily. Through his writing, he was able to create his own theater: "I love the flow of turning the pages, the suspense of what's next. Ideas just come at me and after me. It's all so natural. I work all the time, long into the night, and it's such a pleasure. I don't know when the time ends. I've never been happier in my life!"

Don died in 1978, after a long and successful career. He created many beloved characters in his lifetime, perhaps the most beloved among them a stuffed, overall-wearing bear named Corduroy.

Don Freeman was the author and illustrator of many popular books for children, including Corduroy, A Pocket for Corduroy, and the Caldecott Honor Book Fly High, Fly Low.

In the past 30 years, Lisa McCue has illustrated more than 175 books for children. Lisa���s artwork also appears on fabrics, greeting cards, gift tins, wrapping papers, home d���cor and clothing. She was born in Brooklyn and now lives in Annapolis, Maryland. When she isn���t drawing, she can be found on the water racing her sailboat or in the mountains skiing. She loves to read, sew, and bead and is involved in fundraising for ALS.

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.
