Synopsis

Claude Going for Gold! by Alex T. Smith

Claude, the bestselling beret-clad canine hero, is aiming for the gold medal - winner of the 5-9 fiction Sainsburys Children's Book Award and soon to be a TV star on Disney Junior.

When Claude and Sir Bobblysock discover a Very Exciting Sports Competition at their local sports centre, they are very excited. They are even more excited when they are asked to take part. But Claude's doggy paddle isn't quite fast enough, and he's not quite as good at gymnastics as he thought he might be. Then some robbers steal the Gold Cup and Claude chases them - can he run fast enough to catch them?

Reviews

...illustrated with humour and elegance. ..The Times

This is a fun story and, as ever, the friends adventures are hilarious. Parents In Touch

This is another wonderful adventure for Claude that we enjoyed very much in our house...Brilliant to encourage those readers who are ready for something a little meatier than a simple picture book story, but also enjoyable for all the family, from small ones listening on your knee, to Grandads who borrow

For emerging readers I recommend the Claude books by Alex T Smith, which challenge those ready to move on from picture books with easy-to-follow text, a playful layout and humorous illustrations Irish Sunday Independent

This is the latest in the wonderful series by Alex T Smith ... A very humorous book which is ideal for developing readers Title Sussex

Not only will the cartoony illustrations and fun comic-strip-like layout keep your young readers entertained, the story is fabulous too! This is reading for pleasure at its best English 4 - 11
