This is about a dog called Claude who decides to have some fun in the city.
4 March 2013
I loved Claude in the City because the illustrations were like you see in real life but in a cartoon way.
Claude is like a dog that pretends to stay in bed until his owners leave the house. When the owners Mr and Mrs Shinyshoes do leave to go to work, Claude & his best friend Sir Bobblysock (who is a sock) have fun adventures.
Claude isn’t meant to leave the house or to go into the city but he did once when Mr and Mrs Shinyshoes went to work.
Claude likes to wear berets, and when he was in the city he saw a beret shop and couldn’t resist buying all the berets! Another building Claude and Sir Bobblysock visited was the Art Gallery. They got to see huge sculptures, small sculptures and very very rude sculptures. While they were in the art gallery, a robber came in and was trying to steal all of the art. The robber had a sculpture but with Claude was carrying his boxes of berets he bought earlier in the day and the robber ran right into him making the sculpture go flying!! Luckily Claude caught it and saved the day as the robber was caught!
The book is aimed for 5-7 year olds and kids who really like illustrated books.
