Before the movie Clifford the Big Red Dog releases this month, there are some things you might want to know about the history of the book series. Norman Bridwell is the author of the Clifford series and published the first book in 1963. The series features a dog that is 25 feet tall and was named by the author's wife. Bridwell originally wanted to name the dog "Tiny."
The movie will star Jack Whitehall, David Alan Grier, and John Cleese among others. Take a look at this list of Clifford materials to get you ready for the film starring the big red dog.
