The author, illustrator and creator of the 'Clifford: The Big Red Dog' series, Norman Bridwell, has passed away aged 86. Long term publishing company Scholastic paid tribute to Bridwell earlier today.




Created in 1963, the 'Clifford: The Big Red Dog' series has delighted generations of young children, recently celebrating it's 50th anniversary. The book quickly established the then new publishing company Scholastic, and serves as the brand mascot.



In August, Universal Pictures announced that it had secured the rights to create a 'Clifford' movie, to be released in 2016.
