With lots of action, this is an exciting read, and funny throughout both for children and adults. The Claude books are nicely versatile, as they're great to read aloud, but also fun to sneak off with and just read alone, or even just look at the pictures if you want to. Perfect for snowy evenings, cosy bedtimes and, of course, Christmas Eve!
