My Comment :

      It is a huge responsibility to weave a story, based on a character, that is well established and loved by both adults and kids together. The author, B. G. Hennessy has handled this enormous task and crafted a lovely book.

          As the story follows Corduroy in his quest for  a gift, our hearts follow him, with the same fondness, that was created by Don Freeman earlier. Every unique characteristic of Corduroy in the earlier versions, curiosity, tenderness etc, occupy him in this book also. Also the friendship between Lisa and Corduroy is taken to the next level. Thus, the author has presented a book that both satisfies and expands the love of Corduroy fans.

          The warmth of the story is further lingered by  the illustrations (by Jody Wheeler), that brings Corduroy alive again. They snapshot every happy and lost moments of Lisa and Corduroy and complement the narration perfectly.

          As a perfect sequel for "Corduroy" books, this book makes us to fall in love with this lovable bear once again.
