Claude at the Circus

Alex T. Smith

When Mr. and Mrs. Shineyshoes leave for the day, their dog Claude and his sock puppet sidekick, Sir Bobblysock, visit the circus. From Alex T. Smith's hilariously illustrated early chapter book series.

After rescuing a runaway baby carriage, Claude and Sir Bobblysock are invited to watch a circus. But Claude can't keep his hands to himself and accidentally sabotages the performing equipment. Still, the show must go on―even if Claude and Sir Bobblysock have to put on the entire thing themselves. What a wonderful day!

Quirky, delightfully odd, and positively surreal, Alex T. Smith's beloved Claude series promises fits of giggles for readers transitioning from picture books to chapter books. Two-color illustrations throughout.
