Claude All at Sea A Picture Book by Alex T. Smith

The first picture book starring the delightful canine Claude, following the much-loved fiction series. Perfect for Claude's youngest fans.

In true Claude style, the fearless canine swooshes out of the house via the bathtub. Out at sea and joined by trusted companion, Sir Bobblysock, Claude meets mermaids, dolphins, Captain Poopdeck, and an enormous, ferocious sea monster called Nigel! Can Claude save them all from the monster? Claude was selected for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize, the Richard and Judy Book Club and is soon to be a TV star on Disney Junior in 2017. Alex T. Smith is a World Book Day Illustrator. Praise for Claude: 'Illustrated with humour and elegance.' Sunday Times 'Quirky illustrations with plenty of humour.'
