Updated on August 21, 2014

Clifford The Big Red Dog - A Dearly Loved Favorite!

Clifford the Big Red Dog has been
a dearly loved favorite for over 40 years!

Clifford is an
extraordinarily large red dog
that gets into a fair amount of trouble,
but almost always quite innocently!

Emily Elizabeth, his human companion,
is a school aged girl
who loves Clifford dearly.

Clifford and Emily Elizabeth share many
adventures together on Birdwell Island!

Other frequent characters of the Clifford the Big Red Dog books include Cleo, and T-bone, Clifford's two best doggie buddies! Mac, another dog friend, and Jetta and Charley, two of Emily Elizabeth's classmates, appear in several books as well!

On this page, you'll find Clifford the Big Red Dog books, DVD's, games, and toys, as well as plush animals of most of the main characters! There's also a fun quiz on the Clifford stories, for those who'd like to give it a try!

The Inspiration for Clifford and Emily Elizabeth!

The Clifford series of books was begun in 1963 by Norman Bridwell.

The story of Clifford and Emily Elizabeth came to be after an editor at Harper and Row suggested to Norman Bridwell that he create a story out of one of his sketches. The sketch was of an infant girl and a bloodhound the size of a horse!

Emily Elizabeth was named after Norman Bridwell's daughter. Both Emily and Clifford came from the imaginative stories of Norman Bridwell's wife.

The name of the island Clifford and Emily lived on, "Birdwell Island," bares a strong resemblance to the author's last name!

Clifford doesn't get hurt, and he DOES get over his itch!
