My goodness we've been away from here for a long time!
All we can say on the matter is that we have been RAWTHER busy working on our next two adventures ( Our 4th adventure -CLAUDE IN THE COUNTRY is out now btw!)
There are two new CLAUDE books being published this year and the first one is only a few months away! We are so excited, we keep coming over all unnecessary and have to keep putting damp sponges on our heads and running into the kitchen to clank saucepans together...
Here is a very special SNEAK PEEK at book 5 - CLAUDE in the Spotlight which will be in the shops in April. Our Very Good Friend Alex T. Smith wrote this for his blog, so don't tell him we've stolen it for here!
Lots of Waggy Tails from
CLAUDE and Sir Bobblysock
I'm delighted to be able to give you a few sneak peeks from the forthcoming fifth CLAUDE book -
CLAUDE in the Spotlight!
In this adventure, Claude and the ever faithful Sir Bobblysock find themselves caught up in a mystery of the supernatural kind at the local theatre...
It all starts when Claude finds himself at a children's dancing class.
He's keen to get involved with the music, but...
... then the dance teacher (Miss Henrietta Highkick-Spin) bounds into the class...
... and Claude is soon caught up in the dancing!
But first he must do some warm up stretches.
Poor Claude does find that there are some slight downsides to being a small, plump dog...
Later on, and because of Some Plot, Claude finds himself at the local theatre getting ready to perform with his new dance troupe in a Variety Show where the first prize is a VERY delicious treat.
Unfortunately, there are some peculiar goings on backstage and Claude and Sir Bobblysock must investigate who the mysterious ghostie is and why he's being so naughty and trying to spoil the show...
Whilst all this is going on, there is also the small problem of a very large chandelier that doesn't seem to be very securely attached to the ceiling...
Can CLAUDE and Sir Bobblysock, solve the mystery AND the chandelier?
You'll have to wait and see!
Claude in the Spotlight will be published in the UK by Hodder Children's Books on the 4th April 2013
