In the media
I was excited to pick this up; I'm familiar with Alex T Smith, having seen him whilst doing my teacher training - I enjoy his Claude series, and so do my current class of year 3s! Children must have a good sense of humour to fully appreciate this novel, I can't wait to share it with my class!!
