Late at night while the world sleeps, a curious bear named Corduroy searches every inch of a department store in pursuit of his missing button. Leaving behind delightful messes, a Night Watchman is on the case to discover the origin of this playful destruction. All the while, a young girl dreams of bringing Corduroy home as a new cuddle companion. Don Freeman’s beloved picture book comes to vibrant life in this fun and highly physical adaptation, sure to delight all audiences.
