Review

Claude is a small, plump dog who wears a beret and a lovely red jumper. Claude, like all clever dogs, watches the morning action at home peeking out of one eye. But when Mr and Mrs Shinyshoes set off for the work, Claude decides where he shall go on his daily escapade, accompanied by his friend Mr Bobblysock, who is - you guessed it - both a sock and quite bobbly.

Today, they head to the big smoke for the first time and encounter a strange winged species known to some as pigeons, a group of sick weightlifters and a sneaky art thief. Will Claude be called upon to save the day in the city? A witty story and stylish illustrations.
