Celebrate 50 years of America's favorite teddy bear with a brand-new, classically illustrated picture book by Academy Award winner Viola Davis.
Viola Davis is a critically revered, award-winning actress of film, television and theater. She is the first black actress to win Tony (Fences & King Hedley II), Oscar (Fences) and Emmy (How to Get Away with Murder) awards. Davis is currently starring in the fourth season of "How to Get Away with Murder," a role for which she became the first African American actress to receive the Emmy Award for "Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series." In 2012, Davis and her husband founded their production company, JuVee Productions, with its focus being on giving a voice to the voiceless through strong, impactful and culturally relevant narratives. Davis will next star in Steve McQueen's "Widows," alongside Colin Farrell and Liam Neeson.
"Perhaps the book's most valuable visual aspect is featuring people
of color in all elements of the theater, from Lisa and her mother,
of course, to the orchestra pit, stage manager, and actors . . . A
sweet story that will have children clamoring to see a show,
perhaps with their own bears."
-Kirkus Reviews "A delightful new act for ever-curious Corduroy--and an entertaining introduction to the theater."
