Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Corduroy's Best Halloween Ever! based on Don Freeman's popular character, illus. by Lisa McCue, the fellow gets ready for a Halloween party. His inventive use of a tablecloth earns him costume kudos and extra treats. (June) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
The familiar warmth and caring of Corduroy the teddy bear is alive and well in this Halloween story. Corduroy and all his friends are gathering pumpkins, playing in the leaves, painting Halloween scenes on store windows (be ready for children to express an interest in this activity after reading the story to them!), and choosing costumes. A popular theme this season is the difficulty of the main character in making that choice. In this case, Corduroy cut and glued and sewed his own dinosaur costume. All is well until Puppy comes in very sad because his costume has fallen apart. Without a second thought, Corduroy lets Puppy climb into his own green dinosaur creationÂľwhile Corduroy ends up wearing a tablecloth covered with punch and chocolate stains. "I am a ghost who just came from a Halloween party!" announced Corduroy. It's a marvelous lesson in flexibility and making lemonade when life gives you lemons. Reviewer: Karen Leggett

Meet the Author

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.
