Helen Hewett, Cotswold Life
A real corker ... writer-illustrator Smith carefully introduces little children to new words and sounds (whoosh) and fired their imaginations with a surprisingly friendly sea monster ... I particularly liked the hat and bow tie that Nigel wears
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.
This is a great introduction for a younger audience to the 'Claude' series and will have little ones laughing out loud.
Alex T Smith's latest creation is a perfect combination of words and pictures, which make an engaging, inventive and humorous caper
