Review quote

Fast-paced, funny and with the marvellous illustrations one would expect from Smith... an entertaining and recommended read for the infant age group. * English 4-11 * A funny and exciting story. * School Librarian * Alex's fantastic illustrations bring this great caper to life, a brilliant new series for newly confident readers. * Ruth Swindon (The Bookworm) * Chaos prevails in this very funny story... perfect for those beginning to gain confidence in their reading. * Primary Times * Playful... anarchic... wicked sense of humour... great fun. * Teach Primary * The illustrations are wonderful... full of comic touches and lots of detail... great fun. * * * * * Bookbag * Praise for Claude:

'The author is a comparative newcomer to picture books; on this evidence, he should go far.'

The Independent on Sunday

'A handsome creation.'

The Children's Bookseller

'I loved everything about this book.' * Bookbag * Wildly illustrated on every page by Alex T Smith. Early reading... made highly enjoyable. * Independent on Sunday *
