I expect if I say Clifford The Big Red Dog, you’ll know exactly who I’m talking about? Clifford is such an adorable dog, isn’t he? He’s full of so much love and the very best of intentions. He is enormous though, and his colossal size makes him so clumsy and causes hilarious repercussions!
Generations of children and adults have been enjoying the larger than life capers of Clifford and his faithful owner Emily Elizabeth. I enjoyed the books so much myself when I was little and was delighted to be able to share them with my own children too. I bet they hold fond memories in your family’s heart too?
One of the things I love most about the Clifford stories is that although he is different from every other dog and although he can cause mayhem; he’s always totally loved and totally forgiven by his special little owner Emily Elizabeth. This acceptance and love rings true with all of us and is what brings the Clifford stories right into our hearts!
