About the Author
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.
Praise for A Christmas Wish for Corduroy "A story that can stand next to the original two Corduroy tales without apology. A pleasurable and satisfying back story for the beloved bear named Corduroy. Not too long, not too hard--just right. "--Kirkus Reviews "As they provide a lovely bit of backstory for Corduroy fans, the creators ofCorduroy Lost and Found again show their prowess at recreating Freeman's inviting narrative and scratchboard art."--Publisher's Weekly
