If you know Clifford, you know that most of the humor comes from his "oversized" good intentions creating havoc with mere mortals and objects. Usually, Clifford saves the day for someone along the way, making good use of his size.
This book plays on the opposite theme, how ordinary objects overwhelm a tiny Clifford when he was a puppy. If you read this book first in the Clifford series, it will seem like a three or four star book. If you read it after some of the others, especially Clifford, The Big Red Dog, you will find the counter-humor much funnier and more charming. I based my rating on that way of using the book.
"Clifford wasn't always so big. When he was a puppy, he was very, very small." A ball is so big that it knocks Clifford over. A teddy bear falls over and pins him. He rides on an long-playing record on a turntable like a child would ride on playground equipment. Occasionally, he falls asleep in Emily Elizabeth's hat and cannot be found until she puts it on! He also rides on floating soap in the bath, until one day he slips off. After that, he gets his baths in a soup bowl. Daddy is "surprised" to learn that when he next eats his soup.
The main event is when Clifford climbs into Emily Elizabeth's aunt's purse without being noticed. When her aunt goes to a bake shop, she opens her purse to pay . . . and out pops Clifford, into all the gooey goodies! He makes quite mess.
How shall he get cleaned up? Her aunt bumps into a boy with a St. Bernard who likes whipped cream and makes short work of the mess.Read more ›
This is a great book for bedtime reading, and it is illustrated with many humorous pictures.

I think this is a good book for children. It shows that all big things were once tiny and harmless. I would recommend this book to children that are afraid of things that are big.
