Product Description

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.

Format: Paperback
A disturbing new look at the canine psyche. A compelling story about a big red dog learning to live and love in an angry society. The surprising plot-twist at the end left me feeling both a sense of sadness and relief. I cried at the end.

HASH(0x977096cc) out of 5 stars I wish Clifford had saved the day some other way! Oct. 24 2010
By CMonti - Published on Amazon.com
Dear Parent: if you have a child that is all prone to anxiety or irrational fears: this books is not for your child! I wish that the author had come up with an alternative way for Clifford to save the day. Spare us the BRIDGE COLLAPSING into the river and the vivid illustration. I realize the story is fictional, but my 6 and 4 year old children were quite alarmed by this part of the story. My 6 year old probed: Will that happen to us one day on a bridge? Is that real?

I think there could have been a more creative and less alarming story plot with regard to the city bridge.

Otherwise, Cliford's involvement in the day's activities and parade is amusing and thoughtful.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I REMEMBER HAVING MY OWN SET OF CLIFFORD BOOKS WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL AND I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN MY DAUGHTER BEGAN SHOWING AN INTEREST IN BOOKS.. THE CLIFFORD SET WAS AMONG HER FIRST "BIG GIRL" BOOKS MEANING NOT CARDBOARD. THIS CLIFFORD BOOK IS HER ABSOLUTE FAVORITE IN THE SERIES. IF YOU REMEMBER THESE BOOKS YOU WILL ENJOY SHARING THEM WITH YOUR CHILDREN

Format: Paperback
I thought it was a good book. I likedthe part when Clifford
tried to played volleyball and forgot about the net. That was a
very cute part. I felt sorry for him because he tried to fit in
and be a part of it. The ending was cute because he got to be
apart of it. Norman Bridwell did a good job with it I would say
that this is a cery good book to read.
