Clifford's Birthday Party

Clifford's Birthday Party

Series: Clifford
by Norman Bridwell Illustrated by Norman Bridwell

Everyone wants to give their friend Clifford a special birthday present. But the blow-up ball gets blown up, the piñata gets smashed, the sweater is too small, and the beauty parlor gift certificate just doesn't seem exactly right. Finally, Clifford gets the best present of all: a visit from some special folks he hasn't seen in a long time!

Series Information

With his larger-than-life stories and his huge heart, Clifford the Big Red Dog has entertained children since 1963. Though he began as a tiny puppy, Clifford grew into the biggest dog around, and he and his owner, Emily Elizabeth, have lots of adventures together! Incorporating simple, colorful illustrations and fun-to-read stories into a range of formats, from board books to beginning readers, the Clifford series appeals to a variety of ages. It's no wonder Clifford is Scholastic's reading mascot; he's so often a child's very first reading friend.
