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 trying on hats, shoes, and even baby clothes, Corduroy finally travels to the North Pole. Can Santa help Corduroy find a 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 Don Freeman collection.
