Claude and Sir Bobblysock hit the slopes for a snow-covered adventure. From the award-winning early chapter book series by Alex T. Smith.
“The new book in the series may be the sweetest surrealist children’s book ever published.” ―Kirkus Reviews
Claude and his best friend Sir Bobblysock go to the Snowy Mountains to swish down the powdery slopes. They throw snowballs, learn to ski, and enter a snow-sculpture contest. But when an avalanche threatens their winter wonderland, Claude must come to the rescue.
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.
“Children who have yet to discover Claude, the small, plump dog with the nifty red beret, and his sidekick, Sir Bobblysock (who is both a sock and quite bobbly), are in for a delight…. [W]hen they venture into a winter wonderland, mayhem and hilarity ensues.” ―School Library Journal
“The new book in the series may be the sweetest surrealist children’s book ever published… [I]t’s hard not to love a main character who wears a one-man-band outfit to the library, in case he finds a very exciting book.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“Humorous red-accented illustrations, an amusing storytelling style, and quirky plots will continue to delight Claude’s fans.” ―The Horn Book Guide
