Using her own experiences as a Tony Award-winning Broadway actress, Viola Davis writes the story of Corduroy and Lisa's first trip to the theatre. As usual, Corduroy adventures off on his own, and readers follow his escapades as he explores all over - from the orchestra pit to the costumes rack to the props table and ultimately onto the stage itself, before being reunited with Lisa. A beautifully illustrated tale with a classic feel, sure to spark an interest in theatre in children of any age.

"Perhaps the book's most valuable visual aspect is featuring people of color in all elements of the theater, from Lisa and her mother, of course, to the orchestra pit, stage manager, and actors . . . A sweet story that will have children clamoring to see a show, perhaps with their own bears." -Kirkus Reviews
"A delightful new act for ever-curious Corduroy--and an entertaining introduction to the theater." -Booklist
