A new Clifford book from Norman Bridwell--with foil on the cover!

Clifford has entered a contest to become America's Super Dog! But he is competing against Champ. Champ does everything perfectly. He runs fast, jumps high, and is good at catching Frisbees®. Champ may be a winner, but Clifford will prove he has good sportsmanship and a winning spirit!

Taller than a house and redder than a fire engine, Clifford the Big Red Dog has been loved by millions of children since he was created by Norman Bridwell in 1963. Today, Clifford also stars in his own TV series on PBS.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
When Emily Elizabeth takes her big dog Clifford to the park, they discover there is a contest for dogs. "The winner would be America's Super Dog and get a prize." Clifford is last in line with the big dogs, which are quite a bit smaller than he is. When Clifford attempts the competition events, it is obvious that he is much too large. However, it is Clifford to the rescue in the final event, as the dog he competes against lands in the pond and cannot swim. Although Clifford does not win the title of "America's Super Dog" Emily Elizabeth states that "he will always be my champion." The oversize book is just right for a story about this lovable oversize big red dog. Bridwell includes a lot of humor in the illustrations which are perfectly suited with the text. The simple, straightforward story line will not disappoint Clifford fans. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo
