Claydon goes everywhere with his mother: sky-diving, skateboarding, skiing and more. He thinks it is safer but one day he decides that maybe - just maybe - life might be better not clinging to his mother's leg. This delightful new title from one of our star authors is a hilarious - yet sympathetic - look at one child's growing sense of independence.
