Product details

Claude in the City was selected for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize 2012 and the Richard and Judy Book Club 2011. This is the fourth title in the series. A quiet walk in the country turns into a busy day on the farm when Claude ends up mucking out the pigs, feeding the chickens, and lassoing a fearsome bull! An hilarious series for new readers and also great for sharing. Praise for Claude: '...illustrated with humour and elegance...' - The Times 'With quirky illustrations and plenty of humour...' - Metro
