This month we're celebrating all things CLAUDE!
We're very excited to announce that Alex T. Smith's Claude will be adapted into an animated series by BAFTA-winning Belfast-based animation studio, Sixteen South, for Disney Junior EMEA. The new series has just gone into production and is due to air in 2017 - there will be 52 episodes for boys and girls aged 4 to 6 and Sixteen South are keen to evoke the unique visual style of Alex's original pictures.
Creative director Colin Williams said: "We fell in love with Claude when we first saw the books and we're thrilled that Disney have fallen in love with him too. We're delighted that our four-legged hero will be popping up on Disney Junior all across the world and we know that his fun stories and silly humour will appeal to children everywhere."
More exciting news - Alex T. Smith's long awaited picture book about Claude's adventures is OUT NOW! Claude All at Sea is the first picture book title starring the adorable beret wearing Claude, following the very successful fiction series, published by the Hachette Group, which has sold in 16 languages across five continents.
