Claude in the Spotlight

Part of Claude Series

by Alex T. Smith

Claude is no ordinary dog―he leads an extraordinary life!

Claude and his best friend, Sir Bobblysock (who is both a sock and very bobbly), join a dance troupe and head to the theater to perform their act. But being backstage gives them the heebie-jeebies! It’s so dark and spooky…could the legend of the theater ghost be true?

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.
