Everyone’s favourite dog-adventurer Claude and his trusty side-kick Sir Bobblysock accidently take Santa Clause prisoner and must then race against time to save Christmas.
It is Christmas Eve and after Mr And Mrs Shinyshoes head out for the evening, Claude and Sir Bobblysock apprehend what they think is a burglar coming down the chimney.
They snap on a set of hand-cuffs and turn on the lights to reveal…
…Santa Clause himself!
Hand-cuff keys lost, and Santa now detained, the fearsome twosome must deliver all of Santa's Christmas presents before midnight.
A witty and amusing children's story with plenty to keep older readers entertained too.
