Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Our friend Corduroy lives on and is appearing in a series of "Viking Easy-to-Read" books. In this story, Lisa has asked Corduroy to watch her garden. She has planted some beans. A neighborhood dog disturbs the garden and Corduroy hunts for some seeds to plant. Both he and Lisa are in for a surprise when the plants begin to bear fruit. Fortunately, Lisa likes the new vegetable and Corduroy is proud that he was able to save the day. The illustrations, with heavy black lines, are full of texture and have a look that makes them seem more appropriate to the time period of the original story by Freeman. Level 2, Grades K-2. 2002, Penguin Putnam Books,
