This book is about two best friends who go on their first visit to the countryside. Claude is a small plump dog who wears a beret and a very dashing sweater. He lives with his best friend, Sir Bobblysock, who is both a sock and quite bobbly.
They meet a farmer named Mrs. Cowpat and learn about how to be a sheepdog. They got to watch contests including the most beautiful pig and most angry looking bull competition.
One of my favorite parts was when a judge for the most angry looking bull was being chased, then he landed face first in a cowpat! CLAUDE TO THE RESCUE!
I would recommend this book to my sister, friends, and especially anyone who likes dogs. If you like this book about Claude, then you might like the other books where Claude goes to the circus, beach, the slopes and the city.
