    Thanks to Scholastic for the uncorrected proof copy for review consideration. This was a very enjoyable graphic novel and looks to be a fantastic representation of the upcoming movie (11/5/21) featuring Darby Camp, John Cleese, Sienna Guillory, Tony Hale, David Alan Grier, Horatio Sanz, and many more. While the clear focus of the story is on Clifford's larger-than-life bounds around NYC, the deeper focus is on fitting in, which both Emily and Clifford share (which obviously brings them closer toge Thanks to Scholastic for the uncorrected proof copy for review consideration. This was a very enjoyable graphic novel and looks to be a fantastic representation of the upcoming movie (11/5/21) featuring Darby Camp, John Cleese, Sienna Guillory, Tony Hale, David Alan Grier, Horatio Sanz, and many more. While the clear focus of the story is on Clifford's larger-than-life bounds around NYC, the deeper focus is on fitting in, which both Emily and Clifford share (which obviously brings them closer together)... You know, on top of having the world's biggest dog. I didn't actually grow up on Clifford (I was more of a Berenstain Bears lover myself) but having read this graphic novel, I will definitely be adding more books featuring everyone's favorite Big Red Dog to my daughter's bookshelf. My only mini-squabbles had to do with gaps in the story where I had to double-check a few times that I didn't miss something in a previous panel or to make sure I didn't skip a page. Not huge for a graphic novel, and especially not for one geared toward a younger audience with 1/4-1/2 the dialogue of the graphic novels I am used to. I also have to commend Chi Ngo on the illustrations. Really enjoyed the art style.

Emily is starting at a new, elite private school, but the other students call her "food stamp" because she is there on scholarship. When her mother is called out of town to work on Emily's birthday, she's disappointed. Her father is supposed to see her, and her uncle will be staying with her, but it's still lonely. On the way to school, she and her uncle stop at a tent of adoptable pets, run by Mr. Bridwell. Emily see a tiny, adorable puppy, but isn't allowed to adopt him. After a hard day at school, she finds the puppy in her backpack when she gets home, and begs to keep him for just one day. Her uncle agrees, and the next morning, the puppy (whom she has named Clifford) is taller than Emily! This causes lots of problems, and when photos of Clifford and Emily appear on social media, the president of LyfeGrow, Inc., who has had disappointing results of his somewhat vague produuct, decides to kidnap the giant dog and pass him off as the result of his product. Emily's new friend, Owen, comes through with help when everyone is trying to keep Clifford safe, and soon the dog is heading off to Shanghai on a boat to stay at Owen's father's house on a large property. Of course, LyfeGrow goons intercept him, and it's up to Emily to find him. Can Mr. Bridwell help Emily keep her new friend safe? Strengths: While this has obvious appeal to elementary students who might have recently finished the roughly four thousand Clifford books, this is a solidly middle grade adventure with nice themes of frienship and family. The illustrations are fun, and a nice update. There are some mean girls, but also a lot of people wanting to help Emily. I'm vaguely curious about the movie. Apparently, there was also a television show in the 1990s that I managed to miss. Bonus points for naming the magical Mr. Bridwell after Norman Bridwell, the author of the original books. Weaknesses: Seems a bit odd that Emily and her mother are living in Harlem; weren't the original books solidly surburban? Not as much fun to have a giant dog in all that space, I suppose. Emily still wears skirts at school. Her uncle living in a truck parked on the streets of New York and not wanting to Emily's mother to know also begged an explanation. We don't really know why Clifford is so large, other than some new agey mention of being big and strong to keep Emily safe, and her love making him grow. What I really think: I have SO. MANY. QUESTIONS. And yet, I also found this rather fun. I shouldn't buy it, but may if I have money left. It's better than some titles (Rickety Stitch and the Galatinous Goo) but not as good as others.

CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG: THE MOVIE GRAPHIC NOVEL is an exciting graphic novel that brings the new story of Clifford to life for middle grade readers. Containing some new scenes and images, this book tells the story of Clifford, who was lost and alone until he found his way to Emily Elizabeth. Emily Elizabeth is at a private school and feeling all alone - she is made fun of for being on scholarship with other children calling her "Food Stamps." Her mother has to travel for work on her birthday, and her father, who divorced her mother and now lives in Canada, is supposed to visit, though he's less than reliable. Her Uncle Casey, who is watching her while her mother is out of town, is maybe not super-responsible, and he's not sure how to handle the puppy that shows up, much less when it grows to be ten feet tall overnight. As they navigate owning a pup that size, an evil company takes an interest in Clifford as well and tries to get their hands on him. What I loved: This was an action-packed book with really fantastic illustrations. The graphic novel is put together beautifully, with most of the story told through the images and speech bubbles. It is really easy to follow and great for a middle grade audience, who will appreciate the ease of reading and vivid illustrations. The story has some lessons about feeling different, friendship, and minor lessons about socioeconomic disparity. The villain was just the right amount of scary and ridiculous to keep the plot moving forward, and I loved the way the community ultimately came together to help Emily Elizabeth and Clifford. This book would be great for fans of the movie or those who just love a great dog story. Final verdict: An action-filled and fun graphic novel, CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG: THE MOVIE GRAPHIC NOVEL is a great read about friendship, feeling different, and all the joy of owning a very large and conspicuous puppy! Highly recommend for Clifford fans in the middle grade age range. Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

    I'm not a big fan of graphic novels, but I am a big fan of Clifford the Big Red Dog. This graphic novel is more like an extended edition of a regular Clifford book, sure to please both Clifford enthusiasts (like myself) as well as those who like graphic novels.

    I pre-read this book to possibly read to my students. I don’t think it is one that I will read aloud. It is a cute story but there have been several changes made to the original story.
