Description

Clifford and Emily Elizabeth are spending a day at the pool!

 

Emily Elizabeth wants to earn her Cool Kahuna Badge at the Birdwell Island pool. That means she has to swim across the pool using three different strokes, go down to the bottom of the deep end, and jump off the high dive! Clifford and his friends turn each part of the test into a game to help Emily Elizabeth practice. But on the day of the test, the high dive is broken! Can Clifford help save the day? Featuring adorable art from the new Clifford TV show and a full page of stickers!

About the authors

 

Norman Bridwell se souvenait qu’il n’était pas très doué pour les sports lorsqu’il était enfant. Par contre, il passait beaucoup de temps à dessiner. À l’époque, personne ne se doutait que ses dessins et ses écrits seraient un jour connus de millions d’enfants dans le monde entier. Après la naissance de sa fille Emily, il monte un portfolio et fait la tournée des maisons d’édition de livres pour enfants dans le but d’augmenter un peu son salaire. Il n’a aucun succès. Toutefois, une éditrice lui conseille de présenter ses dessins accompagnés d’une histoire pour augmenter ses chances de succès. Norman Bridwell ne perd pas de temps. Il crée le gros chien rouge Clifford et trois semaines plus tard, il décroche son premier contrat avec Scholastic. L’histoire d’amour dure toujours entre Clifford et les enfants. Avec 100 millions de livres vendus dans plusieurs langues et sa présence à l’écran, Clifford est sans contredit un des « personnages » les plus connus des enfants

 

Norman Bridwell was the author and illustrator of numerous children's books, including the beloved Clifford series. The delightful stories about a big red dog named Clifford and his friend, Emily Elizabeth, have sold over 126 million copies in 13 languages!
