Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of the "Read With Me" series, this title features one of the best-known and beloved characters in children's literature, none other than Clifford the Big Red Dog. In this engaging step-into-reading story, Clifford's co-star and owner, Emily Elizabeth, tells us all about her unusual pet, and why this sometimes less-than-perfect dog is just the one for her. While the text is simple and straightforward, the pictures provide plenty of visual humor. Each page is illustrated with a clever, funny interpretation of how everyday dog behavior—like digging up the flower bed or fetching a stick—could turn out differently than expected when the dog is the biggest, reddest dog anyone has ever seen. This playful story, told in short sentences, is set in a simple, easy-to-read typestyle that is perfect for beginning readers. The story is simple, too—what makes it work so well is that the love and pride every child feels for a family pet shines through in Emily Elizabeth's words about Clifford. This familiar and strong theme, along with Clifford's funny predicaments, make this a book that kids will want to read again and again. 2005, Cartwheel Books/Scholastic, Ages 4 to 7.
