I loved everything about this book. (Bookbag)
A treat for new readers. (Peters Gazette)
Claude's gentle adventures and Alex T. Smith's irresistible illustrations make this a great book to share with children. (ABC Magazine)
Comic talent not just for writing a good story but also illustrating it in a fitting but hilarious style. (Books For Keeps)
A wonderful creation for newly independent readers. (The Bookseller)
Perfect for newly developing readers and great to share. (Primary Times)
Smith's beret-sporting pooch, Claude, is back on hapless and hilarious form in Claude At The Circus. (Junior)
Illustrated with humour and elegance on every page. (Sunday Times)
Another witty and entertaining story, with humour that will appeal to both adults and children - lovely stories to read aloud and share. Quirky and amusing, I think these books are perfect as the next step on from picture books. (parentsintouch.co.uk)

In this story, Claude and his faithful (and long-suffering) friend, Sir Bobblysock go to the park, and find themselves at a Circus. Claude, being his practical self, decides to 'help' clean and tidy up the circus tent - with disastrous results! Along the way, they get up to all sorts of mischief, including annoying a park-keeper and some golfers, tripping up some joggers, performing a daring act of bravery by the duck pond, drinking tea on the high wire and being shot out of a cannon. Alex T Smith's book is filled with beautiful (and hilarious) illustrations as Claude lurches unwittingly from one mishap to another. A brilliant story to share with a child and also perfect for independent readers. As an adult, they're a joy to read, and there are always little parts here and there that appeal to a grown-up sense of humour. I can't recommend the Claude series enough. Buy them all - I guarantee you won't be disappointed!!!
