9781743318423: Monsieur Albert Rides to Glory

Bob Graham's first ever illustrated book is a gently humorous take on the Tour de France—now in paperback

There's a hush in the crowd as the mayor lifts his gun,

then an ear-splitting Bang! and the race has begun,

with a flashing of goggles and pale cyclists' knees,

and a murmuring sound like the bumble of bees.

Monsieur Albert enters the Grand Cycle Race, but he's up against Francois, the champion in France. Can he possibly win? Witty text and gentle, funny illustrations by Bob Graham make this story an instant classic, ideal for reading aloud to young and old.

Review:

"There's so much wonderful whimsy here, it's hard to know what to praise first. As always, a major treat is Graham's detail-filled artwork."  —Booklist, starred review of April and Esme Tooth Fairies

"A distant cousin to 'The Tortoise and the Hare' in loosely sketched watercolors and delicious dactyls."  —Kirkus Reviews 

"[A] perfectly silly story. . . with magnifique illustrations." —New York Times

"Graham’s warm and humorous illustrations make Albert an unlikely but lovable champion." —School Library Journal
