Claude in the Country

A quiet walk in the country turns into a busy day on the farm when Claude ends up mucking out the pigs, feeding the chickens, and lassoing a fearsome bull!

A wonderful creation for newly independent readers.
The Bookseller
A treat for new readers.
Peters Gazette
Comic talent not just for writing a good story but also illustrating it in a fitting but hilarious style.

I loved everything about this book.

A wonderful creation for newly independent readers.
indie bound Christmas Books
Thank goodness Alex T Smith is doing such a grand job of continuing to feed my Claude habit. I do like to steal the Claude stories away from my daughter and curl up to read them myself as they always cheer me up. Smith has great style in his artwork, and a real sense of fun, and he matches it perfectly with the cleverly crafted stories. * * * * *
