Peachtree Publishers Presents!!! CLAUDE IN THE CITY, written by ALEX T. SMITH ~ Giveaway!
This first book in an adorable new series will have young readers in stitches.
Claude and his best friend, Sir Bobblysock (who is both a sock and very bobbly), go to the city for the very first time. They go shopping, visit a museum, foil a robbery, and heal an entire hospital waiting room full of patients. All in all, a most satisfactory day for this delightful duo.
After briefly considering careers in space travel, cookery, and being a rabbit, Alex T. Smith finally decided to become an illustrator. He graduated from Coventry University with a degree in illustration and won second place in the Macmillan Prize for Children's Illustration. He lives in England under the constant supervision of his canine companions - two very tiny, very naughty Chihuahuas and an ancient and very bossy Yorkshire Terrier.

My Thoughts Claude decides to take his best friend Sir Bobblysock and tour the city. They had never been to the city before and it was indeed an adventure. They saw buildings so tall they touched the sky and so many people rushing here and there. They found a wonderful place to stop and have a drink. Then he discovered shops, many shops and one he really had to visit where he ended up buying a new beret, well a few berets. He decided to enter a building that reminded him of yummy bones, it was a museum. So many things to see and do in the city. It had literally been a rewarding day. Claude and Sir Bobblysock slept soundly that night. When Claude woke up Sir Bobblysock did not wake up, something was terribly wrong with Bobblysock! What should he do?!! Bobblysock did not look well! Could he be ill?!! This was a fun book with lots of surprises with the adventurous character, Claude the dog, that the author has created. What a great imagination! The author I mean! Who would have thought of a sock as a character? Alex T. Smith of course! You, along with your children will want to read this fun book. Get ready to smile! I wonder where Claude will go on his next outing? Maybe the Circus or the Beach! Sounds like more fun with Claude coming our way. I highly recommend this book. I rated this book a 5 out of 5.
