Claude Going for Gold!
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 are excited to discover a Stonking Great Big Sports Day at their local sports centre! 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 big gold trophy and Claude chases them - can he run fast enough to catch them?
The eighth book in this hilarious bestselling series - perfect for new readers and also great for sharing!

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' Claude for a chuckle over a cup of cocoa
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
