With his usual brilliantly detailed but gentle illustrations Bob Graham shows readers the unusual hero of this children's book - 60 year old Monsieur Albert.  Told by Peter Smith in rollicking rhyme and with mind-stretching vocabulary, this book just begs to be read out loud as it details our plucky bike rider's race from Paris to Nice and manages to be highly evocative of Paris and France too.  Absolutement charmante!
