Review by

Claude and his best friend Sir Bobblysock have non-violent and amusing adventures. Really fun little book in the intermediate stage between picture books and proper novels - we liked it a lot.  

Review by

Super-ridiculous adventures of a dog named Claude who embarks on adventures while his owners are away. Beret-shopping, foiling an art thief, mistaken for a doctor, and taking his Sir Bobblysock to the hospital...a fun little read-aloud for preschoolers ready for longer stories, or for new readers of chapter books.
