When Claude and Sir Bobblysock discover a Very Exciting Sports Competition at their local sports centre, they are very excited. They are even more excited when they are asked to take part. But Claude's doggy paddle isn't fast enough, and he's not quite as good at gymnastics as he thought he might be. Then some robbers steal the Gold Cup and Claude chases them - can he run fast enough to catch them?
Claude was selected for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize and the Richard and Judy Book Club. Alex T. Smith was the World Book Day Illustrator 2014.
Praise for Claude: '...illustrated with humour and elegance...' The Times
