GUEST REVIEW by Danny Pearson and Jess the Pug!

Published by Hodder Children's Books

‘Twas the night before Christmas and Mr and Mrs Shinyshoes were off to a party in the city...’

Hold onto your Christmas baubles and tinsel because it’s time for Claude, and his best friend, Sir Bobblysock, to stumble into another adventure. This time they are in charge of trying to save Christmas. Will they be able to help Santa Claus deliver all of the world gifts before Mr and Mrs Shinyshoes get back from their party? Grab yourself a copy to find out.

Alex uses his festive skills to bring us a sparkling (literally, take a look at the glorious cover) new Claude adventure. Santa Claude is the ninth title in this hilarious young fiction series of two-colour fiction titles for new readers.

Claude won the 5-9 young fiction Sainsbury's Children's Book Award and was selected for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize, the Richard and Judy Book Club and is soon to be a TV star on Disney Junior with 52 episodes airing in 2017.

Santa Claude is jammed full of wonderful illustrious and makes for a perfect festive treat, ideal for growing children’s confidence as they move from picture books to longer, independent reads. This would be the perfect stocking filler this Christmas!
