Claude in the Spotlight

Part of Claude Series

by Alex T. Smith

What could possibly go wrong when Claude and Sir Bobblysock prepare for their dancing debut at a haunted theater? From the award-winning series by author Alex T. Smith.

Claude and his best friend Sir Bobblysock 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. Available in eBook.

A Children’s Choice book from the International Literacy Association and Children’s Book Council!
