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
