Description

Meet Claude - the ordinary dog with an extraordinary life. Now the star of his very own TV show on Disney Junior with 52 episodes.

Claude and Sir Bobblysock think they've caught a burglar coming down the chimney on Christmas Eve. They clap on the handcuffs and turn on the lights. Oh no! It isn't a burglar - it's none other than Santa Claus himself! Now the key for the handcuffs is lost and it's up to our two heroes to deliver all the presents before midnight ...

The ninth book in this hilarious bestselling series - perfect for new readers and also great for sharing!

Review quote

We've been won over again by Alex T Smith's offbeat canine, Claude, who has returned in his most festive escapade yet * Bath Life * A beautifully designed hardback * Scottish Daily Express * The Claude books by Alex T. Smith...are consistently engaging and zany * Irish Times * I liked this book because it is a very funny story and the author has used a lot of imagination -- Ellen, aged 8 * Primary Times * With plenty of panache, puns and Christmassy fun, this festive adventure from everyone's favourite beret-wearing dog is a perfect addition to your Claude collection * Book Trust * Hurrah, Claude's back and he and Sir Bobblysock are getting into the festive spirit * WRD About Books * As with all of Alex T. Smith's charming tales, there's a sackful of mishaps along the way, before Claude once again saves the day. Full of warm, read and white illustrations and plenty of laughs, Santa Claude will no doubt become a children's Christmas classic * Eastern Daily Press * Oh Claude, you've done it again! * Sunday Independent * A calamity occurs as Claude mistakes Santa for a burglar. In an attempt to save Christmas, Clause sets about delivering the presents himself * Little London Magazine * With plenty of panache, puns and Christmassy fun, this festive adventure from everyone's favourite beret-wearing dog is a perfect addition to your Claude collection - or a brilliant introduction to Waggy Avenue * Bookwitch * Full of warm, red and white illustrations and plenty of laughs, Santa Claude will no doubt become a children's Christmas classic * Belfast Telegraph * With lots of action, this is an exciting read, and funny throughout both for children and adults. The Claude books are nicely versatile, as they're great to read aloud, but also fun to sneak off with and just read alone, or even just look at the pictures if you want to. Perfect for snowy evenings, cosy bedtimes and, of course, Christmas Eve! * The Bookbag *
