We do not like this book
Reviewed in the United States on November 5, 2012
My 4 year old son and I enjoy books together and he already knows how to read pretty well at the age of four. We got this book because thanksigiving draws near but this book was not enjoyable at all. We like other Clifford books but this is not one of them. It's also ridiculous that Clifford's Mom who shows up in this story is a mini version of him and was able to fit on his nose. It's ridiculous how he pushes a train with people out of a tunnel just so that he can get out: "He couldn't turn around, so he pushed the train back to the station." That's quite reckless and rude. It's silly how he jumps on top of the high city buildings on his way to visit his mother. In the end, this thanksgiving story is really only showing one page that is actually about Thanksgiving where Clifford and his mini-sized mother eat dog food and a few heaps of a turkey. That's just not what I expect of a Thanksgiving story. It's a nice idea that Clifford wants to see his mother on Thanksgiving but the story line could have been a lot better and positive instead it was very disappointing. I am sending this back.
