Claude in the Country
Claude is no ordinary dog – he leads an extraordinary life!
Claude and Sir Bobblysock head to the country where they help out down on the farm. Claude gathers chickens’ eggs, cleans the pigs, and even tries his hand at being a sheepdog. But when a fearsome bull interrupts the County Fair, Claude must think like a cowboy to save the day!
Quirky, delightfully odd, and positively surreal, Alex T. Smith’s illustrated early chapter book series promises giggle-filled bedtime reading and a laugh-out-loud option for readers transitioning from picture books to chapter books.
