Product Description


A wonderful creation for newly independent readers. (The Bookseller)

A treat for new readers. (Peters Gazette)

Comic talent not just for writing a good story but also illustrating it in a fitting but hilarious style. (Books For Keeps)

I loved everything about this book. (Bookbag)

A wonderful creation for newly independent readers. (indie bound Christmas Books)

Thank goodness Alex T Smith is doing such a grand job of continuing to feed my Claude habit. I do like to steal the Claude stories away from my daughter and curl up to read them myself as they always cheer me up. Smith has great style in his artwork, and a real sense of fun, and he matches it perfectly with the cleverly crafted stories. * * * * * (Bookbag)

Delightfully witty... beautifully-judged text with enormously appealing illustrations. (Ham & High)

Another Claude book - wonderful! Excellent for newly confident young readers... beautifully produced too. (

Quirky illustrations and a truly endearing central character make this a winner for both children and parents. (World Book Day)

Children and adults will love Claude's exploration of the countryside... a hilarious addition to this stylish series. Claude really is the cream of the crop for younger readers. (We Love This Book)

There is no relenting in the quality of this series. There is absolutely nothing to dislike about the Claude series, nothing. (Library Mice)

Quintessentially British humour from writer/illustrator Smith... whimsical and charming. (Financial Times)

An out-and-out winner this. (Daily Telegraph)

Innovative illustrations... Claude's surreal adventures are both amusing and fun to read, having great appeal for newly confident readers. (Books for Keeps)

A lively read, with images in a stylish retro palette of black, white and red. (Junior)

Cleverly mixing the everyday and the surreal. (Carousel)

Highly lovable... Claude is a rather extraordinary little dog who appeals to this age range immensely. (Rascals of London)

Brilliant... much-loved... extraordinary. Great for sharing and with a highly lovable character. This lively read will get both children and adults chuckling. (Red House Children's Book Award)
