Alex T. Smith briefly considered careers in space travel, cookery and being a rabbit, but finally decided to become an illustrator. He graduated from Coventry University with a degree in Illustration and won second place in the Macmillan Prize for Children's Illustration. Alex lives in England.
"This early chapter book is often hilarious... Smith's pink and gray, retro-modern illustrations are charming... Readers who take it too seriously might end up like Claude, floating in the middle of the ocean, wearing baggy underpants (held together with sticky tape) and pursued by a shark-but they'll be laughing." "Humorous red-accented illustrations, an amusing storytelling style, and quirky plots will continue to delight Claude's fans." "A fun choice for children who enjoy absurdist humor, but probably best as a read-aloud."
