Claude in the Spotlight

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

Review

Alex T Smith's adorable Claude - a small plump dog in a stylish red sweater and beret - is back for a new adventure. Joined by sidekick Sir Bobblysock, this story sees a walk into town unexpectedly lead to the Claude joining in Henrietta Highkick-Spin's dance class, performing in a variety show, saving Mr Lovelybuns the baker from terrifying peril, and even encountering a ghost.

This highly visual story is illustrated throughout in a quirky, elegant, 1950s style, in a distinctive palette of red, white and black. Smith's off-the-wall humour and sense of fun will keep both children and their parents entertained from beginning to end. An utterly charming book for emerging readers.
