Claude on Holiday
By Alex T. Smith
This beret-clad hero is back in another wonderfully funny tale.
Claude is no ordinary dog - he leads an extraordinary life!
Sir Bobblysock and Claude go on holiday for the very first time. They build sandcastles, eat ice cream and sunbathe. It is all very normal until... Claude meets pirates and discovers treasure!
Claude was selected for the Richard and Judy Children's Book Club and shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize.
