Claude at the Circus

Alex T. Smith (Author)
Backorder (temporarily out of stock)


Claude is no ordinary dog--he leads an extraordinary life!
When Mr. and Mrs. Shinyshoes leave for the day, Claude and his best friend Sir Bobblysock take a walk in the park. Suddenly, a woman calls for help, and they find themselves rescuing a runaway baby carriage--with the baby still inside! To reward their heroism, The Amazing Alan invites them to watch his circus. They arrive early, and, as he's been on a cleaning frenzy lately, Claude decides to tidy up the big top. In the process, he accidentally sabotages the performers' equipment. But the show must go on--even if Claude and Sir Bobblysock have to put on the entire thing themselves!
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.

"Fans of Amelia Bedelia will find this sort of thing hilarious... The climax has everything a child could want in a book."
