About the Author

There's no denying that kids love Clifford®. The Big Red Dog® has been a favorite since Norman Bridwell created him over 40 years ago. "I was working as a commercial artist in New York City. There wasn't much work, so I made some sample pictures and took them to several publishers. They all rejected my work. But one editor suggested that I try writing a book of my own to illustrate. I had done a painting of a little girl with a big red dog. That seemed like a funny idea, so I made up a story about them. I increased the dog's size from as big as a horse to as big as a house. My wife named the dog Clifford, and we named the little girl Emily Elizabeth after our daughter. In three days I had written the story and drawn the pictures for Clifford The Big Red Dog. When Scholastic called and said they wanted the book, I was stunned." Bridwell, who grew up in Kokomo, Indiana, lives now on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, with his wife, Norma.

3.0 out of 5 stars Clifford's Good Deeds Sept. 30 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
In the book called "Clifford's Good Deeds", there is a character named Clifford, his owner Emily Elizabeth, and a neighbor boy named Tim. Clifford, Emily, and Tim tries to do good deeds to help out people. Clifford tries helping someone rake the leaves, but he sneezed and all the leaves scatter. Then Clifford tries to do another good deed, painting. He was doing well until the lady thanked him and he was so happy he wagged his tail. Then white paint splattered all over the house. Clifford messes up when he tries to help out two more people, a person in the sewer and someone with their cat stuck in a tree. He decides that he isn't any good. This book teaches kids about good deeds in life.
This book is for ages 7-8.
This book is ok.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for explaining what good deeds are June 19 2014
By Joe A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is great for helping explain what good deeds are to younger children. Throughout the book, Clifford performs good deeds, but has things go wrong (i.e. cleans up leaves, but then sneezes so the leaves spread on the ground all over again).

My preschool aged child really likes the book and I like being able to explain what good deeds are/that Clifford is helping others!

This is my FAVORITE Clifford story-just LOVE when he tries to help that little kitty in the tree! I think even young children "get it" when they see the great illustrations of Clifford's adventures.
