Clifford the Small Red Puppy wakes up one morning to a brand new day and a whole lot of furry friends ready to play. Readers can pet the soft cow, the fluffy bunny, the downy duckling and more in this simple, interactive story about everyone's favorite red pooch. The rhyming text and furry patches will please the youngest readers (or listeners!): "Furry little kitten is taking a nap. / Clifford will wake her with a yap, yap, yap!" Clifford as a young pup is adorably pudgy and as playful as can be. Children may already know him (in a later incarnation) as Clifford the Big Red Dog, from TV or the many classic picture books by Norman Bridwell, including Clifford, the Big Red Dog and Clifford Takes a Trip. (Baby to Preschool) --Emilie CoulterAbout 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.
