and falls asleep, nice work Cheech And why doesn t he end up in jail Because look at him, all innocent looking with one strap undone Who Wore It Better He gets away with all of it.Anyway this was my kid s favorite book when he was two, and we read it many times He s over it now he s moved on to Paddington, so we might be sensing a theme here.The theme is bears who can t get their shit together, do you realize that the entire plot of every Paddington story is he loses a sandwich But who am I to judge I once tried that thing from Breakfast Club where they climb through the space above a drop ceiling It s much harder than it looks and I got introuble than Corduroy did Maybe I should have tried the one strap overalls look I finally got around to reading this classic beginners book It was

s fascinating to see There are several little letters in the back you can open and read I thought that was so cool.The nephew thought Corduroy was cute, but he said it was not an exciting book He said he was too old for this story and it s true He still gave it 3 stars and he was glad Corduroy got his button finally
