Comic talent not just for writing a good story but also illustrating it in a fitting but hilarious style.

Cleverly mixing the everyday and the surreal.

The Bookseller
Thank goodness Alex T Smith is doing such a grand job of continuing to feed my Claude habit. I do like to steal the Claude stories away from my daughter and curl up to read them myself as they always cheer me up. Smith has great style in his artwork, and a real sense of fun, and he matches it perfectly with the cleverly crafted stories. * * * * *
Quintessentially British humour from writer/illustrator Smith... whimsical and charming.
Financial Times
Innovative illustrations... Claude's surreal adventures are both amusing and fun to read, having great appeal for newly confident readers.
