Every American child reads “Corduroy,” by Don Freeman. It is as much a part of our nation’s literature as “Moby Dick.” As such, one of the pleasures for me in reading this book was looking at Don Freeman’s illustrations. It is a nice, well written book that deserves to be read to the end. It follows the adventures of the Macauley family in Ithaca, California. My favorite Macauley was Ulysses, the four year old. I loved his adventures, but as someone living in the twenty-first century, I had a hard time understanding how a toddler was able to roam around town and country unsupervised. It is unfortunate that I read this immediately after the “No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” because Saroyan and McCall Smith try for the same writing style and McCall beats Saroyan at his own game.
