Another fantastic serving of that lovable, funny dog - Claude! This time, Claude and his trusty friend Mr Bobblysock find themselves on the set of a film! After causing a few...problems... they then find themselves starring in the film too! I've read many 'Claude' books, and have a collection in my class library that are always in demand. The books are pretty much graphic novels; every page has fantastic illustrations of funny characters with hilarious names - like Mr Lovelybuns! The book is short but sweet with an easy to follow plot line. A great book for reluctant readers (without looking like an 'easy' book!), none of the pages are overloaded with text and quite often the text is laid out in different ways. It's an entertaining book with lots of chances to giggle at the funny details. This book is suitable for both boys and girls and is a fantastic tool to help expand children's vocabulary. 96 pages / Ages 7+ / Reviewed by Lizi Coombs, teacher
