Reviews

I liked all the pictures, there are lots of them and they are colourful and funny. I would give this book ten out of ten. I am reading some of the other Claude books now too.Lloyd 8, Wells Bookworms * Wells Journal * Charming and gentle stories, these are a refreshing change from some of the formulaic series around. These are great books for reluctant readers - the stories are amusing, there is plenty happening, passages are short and the pictures are attractive and informative. * parentsintouch.co.uk * Readers will be excitedly turning the pages. * Red House Children's Book Award * Another great talent... a sparing style is the perfect medium for his humorous tale. * Junior * colourful and lively illustrations which add immensely to the fun. * Carousel * Funny, detailed illustrations. * Mumsense * Comic talent not just for writing a good story but also illustrating it in a fitting but hilarious style. * Books For Keeps * Claude's gentle adventures and Alex T. Smith's irresistible illustrations make this a great book to share with children. * ABC Magazine * The author is a comparitive newcomer to children's books
