When the store closes and the lights go out, Corduroy suddenly realizes that he is missing his button. Struck with worry, he sets out on an adventure through the maze of imagination that awaits him in the secret world of the quiet department store. But, when he causes a crash, a nightwatchman finds him and puts him back up on the shelf. The next day, a young girl takes notice of the lonely teddy with only one button. Will Corduroy ever find his missing button? Will the little girl decide to take Corduroy home? You will have to read this adorable, classic children's picture book to find out! It is one of my favorite stories. The illustrations are marvelous, and I know that it will be a story that Margo will always treasure, just as I have.
