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.

Norman Bridwell's Big Red Dog features in a pair of titles. Clifford and Emily Elizabeth teach letters and counting alongside memory and matching games in Clifford's Neighborhood: Lots to Learn Around Town, illus. by Carolyn Bracken and Ken Edwards. The oversize board book, shaped like a doghouse, contains over 80 flaps to lift. Clifford I Love You Pop-Up (first published in 1994) reappears as part of Reading Is Fundamental's 35th anniversary. Bridwell's rhymed couplets and oversize pop-ups of the giant pooch show him enjoying an array of affections with his human friends ("When you're happy, Love is sharing. When you're sad, Love is caring").
