Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Stepping back in time, young readers get to know Clifford as a little puppy before he became the towering "big red dog." It is Clifford's first Halloween experience and his mistress is looking for the perfect costume. It turns out to be pretty simple, but really works. Together they go trick-or-treating and the neighbors are generous with both Clifford and his mistress. The fun is not over because our protagonist is hosting a Halloween party. It includes goodies like candy apples, which present quite a challenge for poor little Clifford. Later the kids all go into a haunted house that was created from bed sheets and chairs and listen to mother tell a spooky story using shadow play. Clifford gets into the act and manages to give everyone a bit of a scare. It all ends with cupcakes and smiles. Kids who are just learning about the holiday will enjoy Clifford's experiences and because it ends on such a happy note, they will realize that Halloween is a holiday for costumes, play, parties and more.
