Here comes Claude: an utterly adorable new young fiction character from talented young author/illustrator, Alex T. Smith.
Claude in the City was selected for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize 2012 and the Richard and Judy Book Club 2011. This is the fourth title in the series.
A quiet walk in the country turns into a busy day on the farm when Claude ends up mucking out the pigs, feeding the chickens, and lassoing a fearsome bull!
An hilarious series for new readers and also great for sharing. There are two new books to come - Claude in the Spotlight (April 13) and Claude on the Slopes (Oct 13).
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
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
