‘Clifford’ Author Norman Bridwell Will Posthumously Release a Hanukkah Book



Sad news in the world of children’s literature. News broke today that Norman Bridwell, celebrated author of the “Clifford the Big Red Dog,” series, died on Friday, Dec. 12 at the age of 86.

According to the New York Times, Bridwell left us with two more Clifford stories before his death, both of which will be published in 2015. The one we’re particularly excited about? “Clifford Celebrates Hanukkah.”

Rest in peace, Mr. Bridwell. We can’t wait to see how Clifford will light the menorah.
