“How can you fully open your heart to someone new, when in fact...what you really need is closure from your past.”
Norman Bridwell

“I was having fun at grandma's house, but I kept thinking about Clifford.
I wondered if he was thinking of me.

He was. He loves his mom, but as soon as he could, he hurried home. So did I . . .

. . . because I am thankful for Clifford, and he is thankful for me.”
Norman Bridwell, Clifford's Thanksgiving Visit

“Many Halloweens ago, he was just a tiny red puppy.
I wanted to take Clifford out trick-or-treating.
But the mask and hat didn’t fit.
He was not a happy clown.”
Norman Bridwell, Clifford's First Halloween
