Claude in the City by Alex T. Smith: Book Review and Giveaway



Get ready for a fun adventure with Claude, the adorable dog, and his best friend,
 Sir Bobblysock.
Claude and Sir Bobblysock set out on their first visit to the city.

On day one, they visit a fancy cafe, discover the best beret shop in the world, visit an art gallery, and witness an art theft. Will Claude and Sir Bobblysock have what it takes to foil the robbery?

The next day, Claude rushes a sick Sir Bobblysock to the hospital. Quirky characters and a play on words with the doctor's name will have young readers snickering at every turn of the page. The pen and ink illustrations are a throwback to early readers of the sixties and seventies. The strong writing will make parents wish their first books had been as charming as Claude in the City. The splash of reds give the book a cartoon-like feel. It's almost impossible not to fall in love with Claude.
A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED early reader.
