Description from Goodreads

Meet Claude. He’s no ordinary dog–he leads an extraordinary life! Each day when his owners leave for work, Claude decides what adventure he will have. What will happen today? Claude and his best friend, Sir Bobblysock, go to the Snowy Mountains to swish down the powdery slopes. When their winter wonderland threatens to avalanche, Claude must come to the rescue.

I gave this book five stars out of five

My thoughts:

What a fun book. Children will love reading the continued adventures of Claude, the beret wearing dog, and his sock companion Sir Bobblysocks.

Children of all ages will enjoy exploring the snowy slopes with this pair of friends and will find the story fun and exciting. The author has created some entertaining and amusing characters, and a story that is packed full of laughs, not only for children, but also for those of us that are a little older, but remain big kids. Sorry, I meant young at heart.

This book will be especially interesting to those children that have already been exposed to the earlier adventures of Claude, and will leave those that haven’t wanting to find out more.

This book contains great illustrations throughout, accompanying the text and providing additional enjoyment and allowing greater interaction with the book for younger children too.

I would recommend this book as a great bedtime read for the kids. I thought this book was just the right length for that purpose. I look forward to reading further adventures of Claude and Sir Bobblysocks.
