“I’ve always loved a good question. When I begin working on a book I start by looking for a question that would interest a child: What would make someone happy ever after? Where do clouds sleep? Sometimes the questions are more practical: How do you build a road? What happens at a wedding? When I am working on the Corduroy books I look for the right question for Corduroy: What should I get Lisa for her birthday? How can I find a home? What did happen to my missing button? Once I find the right question I start to play with finding the right answer.”

B. G. Hennessy is the author of over 35 picture books published in over ten languages. She is the author of fifteen books based on Don Freeman’s loveable Corduroy bear. Her most recent book, A CHRISTMAS WISH FOR CORDUROY, answers the question of how that button did get lost.
