ABOUT THE BOOK: Claude, the Clumsy Clydesdale is about Claude, a beautiful young
foal and a perfect specimen of the strong, earthy and graceful
Clydesdale breed. The story centers around Claude and the fact that
he thinks of himself as being clumsy after comparing himself to
animal friends that live with him on the farm where he was born.
Dejected, he retreats to the comfort of his stall where he hides away
from those he loves. But just as our hero is about to lose all hope, he
must put aside his self-doubts to come to the rescue of Mother Goose
and her goslings.
