Roll out the red carpet and dust off the fine china, it’s time for a brand new Claude adventure by award-winning illustrator Alex T. Smith.
Claude at the Palace published by Hachette Children’s Books takes to the throne this month and is the tenth offering in this best-selling series for young readers. With his very own animated series on ITVBe and Disney Junior, it was only a matter of time before Claude made his way to the royal palace.
Claude and Sir Bobblysock just happen to wander accidentally into the royal palace on a very special day indeed – the Queen’s birthday! Unfortunately, the royal nanny, Nanny Stern-Bloomers, has had to take herself off for a lie-down and there’s no one to make sure the royal children stay neat and tidy for the big party. But . . . Claude and Sir Bobblysock could step in to babysit, couldn’t they? After all, princes and princesses are always on their best behaviour . . .
With its familiar trademark black white and red illustrations throughout and hilarious laugh out loud moments, this special regal story is set to be a huge hit with readers of all ages.
Here is a peek through the Royal keyhole at some of our favourite illustrations from Claude at the Palace.
