Written by Alex T. Smith

Part of the Claude Series

Claude Going for Gold! Synopsis

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? 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 with 52 episodes airing in 2017. Claude Going for Gold! is the winner of the 5-9 fiction Sainsburys Children's Book Award. Alex T. Smith was the World Book Day Illustrator 2014.

Claude Going for Gold! Press Reviews

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 * This is the latest in the wonderful series by Alex T Smith ... A very humorous book which is ideal for developing readers * Title Sussex * 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 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' Claude for a chuckle over a cup of cocoa * The Bookbag * This is a fun story and, as ever, the friends' adventures are hilarious. * Parents In Touch *
