Claude All at Sea
Claude is a small, plump dog who likes wearing a beret and a lovely red jumper. When his owners, Mr and Mrs Shinyshoes, are out at work, Claude and his best friend Sir Bobblysock have amazing adventures.
When Claude accidentally leaves the bath taps running and floods the house, he and Sir Bobblysock find themselves swept out to sea and in trouble with Nigel, the gigantic sea monster.
Luckily, Claude's roomy beret contains a myriad of items that are useful for all sorts of emergencies - but he still needs to explain to Mr and Mrs Shinyshoes how their bath has ended up in the kitchen!
Claude is a delightful character whose resourcefulness and joie de vivre will appeal to both youngsters and adults. Clever use of colour and typography brings the story and its characters to life, and offers plenty of opportunity for noisy interaction.
