Alex T Smith

It's a busy month for Alex T Smith with 2 publications hitting the bookstands. His delightful new picture book Ella, published by Scholastic tells the story of a little ladybird with big dreams. And his third book in the series for Hodder Children's Books, Claude at the Circus really demonstrates Alex's comic talent for writing as well as illustrating. A walk in the park leads to a walk on a tightrope when Claude and Sir Bobblysocks join the circus.
