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.

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.
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.
