Children's Book of the Month - Lights! Camera! Action!
Read the first chapter of Claude's latest adventure.
We love Alex T. Smith's books about Claude. In fact, we even selected a previous book in the series for the 2012 Waterstone's Children's Book Prize. They're beautiful, hilarious and it's a pleasure to have the latest as our August Children's Book of the Month.
They are perfect for any parents whose children are ready to move on from picture books to chapter books. Alex's illustrations, as you'll see, are full of life and, more importantly, fun. The adventures of Claude and his friend, Sir Bobblysock (literally, a bobbly sock) are hilarious.
We're delighted to present the first chapter below. If there's a young reader in your life, this is a fantastic addition to their collection.
From the World Book Day Illustrator 2014, comes another wonderfully funny tale about the bestselling beret-clad hero.
