Have you met Claude?

"Claude is a small, plump dog who wears a beret and a rather fetching sweater"... 
this is how each of Alex T. Smith's chapter books about the charming Claude begin. And goodness me I am in love with them all!
Claude's adventures include: Claude on Holiday, 
Claude in the City and the newest tale... 
Claude at the Circus!

Claude lives with Mr and Mrs Shineyshoes, and his best friend is Sir Bobblysock, a little sock who hops along on all the adventures.
A 3 year old and a 6 year old I know - who are very discerning young fellows- absolutely approve of Claude. In-fact I haven't met a soul who does not adore this little character.
Perfect as a first chapter book for boys and girls, and even as a read aloud story for younger folk. 10 out of 10, a gold star for Claude! Hooray! Standing Ovation!

Also, the creator of Claude is super amazing, he seems quite young and spiffy and definitely CLEVER... Have a look at his excellent blog, have a look here:
And Claude himself also has a blog you can se it here:
