Claude

Meet Claude - the ordinary dog with an extraordinary life - in this very special short story created especially for World Book Day 2019.

The Great Waggy Avenue Dog Show is happening today - and there are medals galore to be won! Claude nearly wags his tail off and Sir Bobblysock's bobbles tingle with excitement.

If only they knew a dog so Claude and Sir Bobblysock could take part . . .

Praise for the Claude series:
'Quirky illustrations and plenty of humour' Metro

Claude is now the star of his very own TV show on Disney Junior with 52 episodes.
