Published by Hodder in April, Claude in the Spotlight is the fifth book in the popular Claude series written and illustrated by the very talented Alex T Smith. Claude and Sir Bobblysock's gentle stroll through town leads to leg kicking and bottom shaking as they dance their way into the theatre and straight into a local variety show. The winning prize is all the cakes you can eat from the delectable Mr Lovelybuns Bakery, how could they resist? But someone else, a dastardly and very naughty man has plans to scupper Claude's moment in the limelight and bag all the cakes for himself! The dynamic duo are thrown into a perilous world of ghostly apparitions, giant rabbits and voluptuous vikings. Alex's cheeky 'carry-on' humour encourages reluctant readers and rewards their parents with some well earned, laugh out loud moments.
