Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Clifford has made a mark on children's media for being "the Big Red Dog," but that wasn't always the case. Long before he grew to enormous proportions, Clifford was a very tiny puppy. He was, in fact, smaller than a candy cane. He slept not in a doghouse, but in a basket next to Emily Elizabeth's bed. At least, he would sleep—if he could. But children aren't the only ones who are excited on Christmas Eve. Dogs are, too. It isn't long before Clifford has sprung from his bed to explore the holiday-ready living room. His adventure takes an unexpected turn when he falls into a stocking; fortunately, a most jolly old rescuer isn't long in coming! Christmas morning brings a host of surprises for Emily Elizabeth and Clifford to enjoy, including a toy car, a dollhouse, a miniature train, and a doll. Clifford thrills in dwarfing them all. But that could never happen—or could it? Established Clifford fans and those new to the crimson canine and his doting owner will appreciate this simple holiday tale. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
