Contributor Bio(s): B.G. Hennessy grew up in Wantagh on Long Island, NY. At the University of Wisconsin in Madison, she majored in fine art and learned how to design, print and bind handmade books. She also took courses in Children’s Literature. The combination of form and content in the picture book format fascinated her and after graduation she headed for NYC where she worked for 17 years in children’s book publishing as a designer and art director. She is the author of Road Builders and The First Night, as well as many books starring Corduroy, the loveable toy bear created by Don Freeman. She now lives with her family in Arizona.

Don Freeman (1908–1978) was the author and illustrator of many popular books for children, including CorduroyA Pocket for Corduroy, and the Caldecott Honor Book Fly High, Fly Low. During his career as an artist, sketching impressions of Broadway shows for the New York Times and The Herald Tribune, 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!" He created many beloved characters in his lifetime, perhaps the most beloved among them a stuffed, overall-wearing bear named Corduroy.B.G. Hennessy grew up in Wantagh on Long Island, NY.

This new adventure about Corduroy ("based on the character created by Don Freeman") follows the bear as he sets out one night to find a birthday gift for his owner, Lisa. Corduroy gets lost, and when Lisa finds him she declares that having him back is gift enough. The illustrations and story are serviceable but superfluous copies of Freeman's originals.

Expanding on the beloved character created by Don Freeman, B.G. Hennessy pens the tale Corduroy Lost and Found, illus. by Jody Wheeler, in which the cub heads out to get a birthday present for his pal Lisa, and winds up on an adventure that takes him astray-luckily Lisa finds him, not far from where he started.
