Clifford went to Hollywood and became a big star. He had fun at first, but then it was too much and he missed Emily Elizabeth, so he returned home to her.

This review is for the children's book Clifford Goes to Hollywood by Norman Bridwell.

The one thing I learned from this book is that Clifford the Big Red Dog has been around since the early 1960s. That absolutely blew my mind. So Clifford had already been around for TWENTY years when this book was

published. Crazy, right?

I also learned that this book was later (2010) reprinted as Clifford is a Star.

This book was really cute but not really all that educational. But that's okay because I mean it's Clifford. Who doesn't love Clifford?

I wondered why his owner (Emily Elizabeth; unnamed in this book) didn't go with him to Hollywood. I would have wanted to go with him if he were my dog. It's hard not to miss a gigantic red dog.

I definitely recommend this book. I love Clifford the Big Red Dog.

Clifford the Big Red Dog returns; after a screen test, he’s declared a terrific actor and taken to Hollywood to make a movie. Clifford’s movie is a huge success and he becomes a star.

Now Clifford has a doghouse fit for a star, dog collars made of gold and diamonds, a bone-shaped swimming pool,

and many fans. But Clifford is not happy. What will make Clifford the Big Red Dog happy again?

Young readers in the primary grades . . . first and second graders, ages six and seven . . . are the target audience for Clifford’s adventures with Emily Elizabeth.

But this story is elevated to something more with its wise message for all children. Clifford learns that things, no matter how bright or numerous or expensive, cannot take the place of family and love.

Highly recommended.
