REVIEW

Another cute story about a fun loving dog and his best friend, Sir Bobblysock (who is in fact an actual sock), Claude on the Slopes takes the reader to a mountain resort where Claude and Sir Bobblysock experience a snowman building contest, sledding, and skiing.  Claude also learns the importance of safety and using an inside voice on the slopes, but will he be able to help when the worst actually occurs?  This is a humorous early reader series with only a few sentences per page accompanied by numerous exaggerated, cartoon-like illustrations. I especially love Claude's beret which reminds me distinctly of Mary Poppins' carpet bag--capable of carrying anything and everything that one could ever need.  A series that is bound to have numerous fans of all ages.
