I had the pleasure of been able to review this book from @AvonBooksUK and @NetGalley and written by @Sophie_Pembroke and boy was I chuffed to bits
This Christmas a little dog is in for a BIG adventure…
Meet Claude. He’s a loveable, big-eared, permanently hungry French Bulldog, who loves his humans – the McCawley family of number 11 Maple Drive to be precise.
When Daisy and Oliver McCawley start using new words like, ‘ferry’, ‘chateau’ and ‘France’, Claude realises they won’t be spending this Christmas at home. Only, when he finds himself on the street, as the family car pulls away, Claude realises he is ALONE. And more importantly, he is without all the yummy treats he knows the festive season brings…
Cue the start of Claude’s Christmas Adventure. It all begins with a belly-flop through next door’s catflap, where he finds newly single and craft-a-holic Holly, Jack the ex-army postman, his arch nemesis Perdita the cat … and serious amounts of gingerbread.
Maple Drive’s cutest resident is about to bring the street together for Christmas, in ways no-one could have imagined …
As soon as I saw a dog on the cover of this book, I knew I needed to read it. I adore dogs. And as i have read Sophie’s work before, i just knew it would be well written too.
This was a wonderful heartwarming tale of this cheeky little dog, it had my old chuckle muscles working overtime with all of the antics. The Characters in the book are very likeable and all in all this is a lovely Sunday on the Snuggly Sofa kind of book. I adored it.
I rate this book 5/5
