Claude Series

by
  • (133 reviews)

    Claude books are what I always recommend if parents ask which books their children might enjoy when they're ready for something a little longer than a picture book. They are a true joy to read for children as well as adults; Claude the Dog is a loveable, quirky dog and his side-kick Sir Bobblysock a loyal companion. Claude won the 5-9 young fiction Sainsbury's Children's Book Award, was selected for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize, the Richard and Judy Book Club and is now a TV star on Disney Junior.

    "The author is a comparative newcomer to children's books; on this evidence, he should go far." (The Independent on Sunday)

    "A handsome creation." (The Children's Bookseller)

    "Perfect for newly developing readers and great to share." (Primary Times)

    "Watch out for this new kid on the children's books block, you will be won over!" (Librarymice.com)

    "I loved everything about this book." (Bookbag)

    Book 1: Claude in the City (2011)
    Book 2: Claude on Holiday (2011)
    Book 3: Claude at the Circus (2012)
