About Clifford the Big Red Dog
Clifford, the giant dog, was red. Clifford the Big Red Dog was created by Norman Bridwell. The first book was published in 1963. Clifford would go on to become Scholastic Books’ official mascot. Clifford’s color is a huge part of his character, as is his size. Chosen by his owner, Emily Elizabeth because he was the smallest puppy in his litter, Clifford would soon grow to 25 feet. This unforeseeable change forced Emily Elizabeth and her parents to move out of the city and to a more suburban area, where she and Clifford would go on to have many adventures. Emily Elizabeth and Clifford are best friends, and Emily Elizabeth often rides on Clifford’s back when they go places. Clifford’s color and size render him immediately recognizable to the hundred of thousands of children who grew up with him and Emily Elizabeth. Norman Bridwell would go on to write 40 books featuring Clifford the Big Red Dog. Scholastic Books became a major player in the children’s publishing world thanks to the series. Clifford and his owner also became a television series on PBS Kids from 2000-2003. Clifford the Big Red Dog is known around the world, with over 126 million copies of the books in print translated into 13 languages.
