‘Illustrated with humour and elegance …’ The Sunday Times

Claude and Sir Bobblysock are excited to discover a Stonking Great Big Sports Day at their local sports centre! They are even more excited when they are asked to take part. But Claude’s doggy paddle isn’t quite fast enough, and he’s not quite as good at gymnastics as he thought he might be. Then some robbers steal the big gold trophy and Claude chases them – can he run fast enough to catch them?

Reviews

This is a fun story and, as ever, the friends' adventures are hilarious.
Parents In Touch
This is another wonderful adventure for Claude that we enjoyed very much in our house...Brilliant to encourage those readers who are ready for something a little meatier than a simple picture book story, but also enjoyable for all the family, from small ones listening on your knee, to Grandads who 'borrow' Claude for a chuckle over a cup of cocoa
The Bookbag
For emerging readers I recommend the Claude books by Alex T Smith, which challenge those ready to move on from picture books with easy-to-follow text, a playful layout and humorous illustrations
Irish Sunday Independent
This is the latest in the wonderful series by Alex T Smith ... A very humorous book which is ideal for developing readers
Title Sussex
Not only will the cartoony illustrations and fun comic-strip-like layout keep your young readers entertained, the story is fabulous too! This is reading for pleasure at its best
