Summary

In this brand-new, original story by Norman Bridwell, Clifford saves the day -- and learns a few tricks along the way!

Emily Elizabeth is taking Clifford to dog school. His teacher tries to show Clifford how to heel. But the leash is too short and she's swept off her feet. Then she tells clifford to sit. He sits-on top of a passing stranger! Poor Clifford-he just can't get anything right! But when Emily Elizabeth forgets to look both ways before crossing the street, Clifford comes to her rescue. And Emily Elizabeth realizes that, although he's not the most well-trained dog, he's perfect just the way he is.
