Description

Claude is no ordinary dog - he leads an extraordinary life!
Claude and his best friend, Sir Bobblysock (who is both a sock and very bobbly), pack their bags and go on vacation to the beach. They rescue a man from a shark, win a sandcastle-building competition, and hunt for pirate treasure. Of course, they make it back home just before Mr. and Mrs. Shinyshoes come home from work.
Quirky, delightfully odd, and positively surreal, Alex T. Smith's illustrated early chapter book series promises giggle-filled bedtime reading and a laugh-out-loud option for readers transitioning from picture books to chapter books.

Reviews

"This early chapter book is often hilarious... Smith's pink and gray, retro-modern illustrations are charming... Readers who take it too seriously might end up like Claude, floating in the middle of the ocean, wearing baggy underpants (held together with sticky tape) and pursued by a shark-but they'll be laughing."
"Humorous red-accented illustrations, an amusing storytelling style, and quirky plots will continue to delight Claude's fans."
"A fun choice for children who enjoy absurdist humor, but probably best as a read-aloud."
