Claude on Holiday, by the wonderfully witty Alex T Smith, continues the delightful adventures of Claude, a beret-wearing and slightly plump, happy-go-lucky dog.

Accompanied by the faithful Sir Bobblysock, a day out to the seaside proves to be full of adventure as they encounter a shark attack, win a sandcastle competition and become part of a treasure-seeking pirate crew.

Claude is a wonderful creation for newly independent readers and the quirky text and mischievous illustrations make this a joy. The series is great for sharing, as each page is brimming with wit and humorous detail—especially the distracted lifeguard, whose lack of concentration results in our hero Claude saving the day!
