    1 thought on “Monsieur Albert Rides To Glory

    1. I really enjoyed this picture book written in verse. It is a mixture of Hare and the tortoise and Steven Bradbury: former Australian speed skater who won the gold medal in the 1000 m event at the 2002 winter olympics when his opponents we're involved in a last corner pile up. So, Monsieur Albert despite all the odds cycles on to glory.

    2. When 60-year-old Albert Larousse, sees an advertisement in the morning paper for the Grand Cycling Race in France, his interest is aroused. He is 60 years old and it would seem unlikely that he would finish the race and impossible that he could win, but the lure of a prize is tempting. Wearing his comfortable brown jacket and red scarf and taking along some fruit, bread and wine as a snack, he makes his way to the start line, ready to mount his trusty bike. Lycra-clad competitors surround him an [...]

    3. I'm a big fan of Bob Graham, so I had high hopes for this book. And his illustrations are indeed lovely. The rhyming text is better than average (only slightly forced in places). So why the low rating? Well, I hate to be picky, but I was sorely disappointed in the decision not to put a bike helmet on Monsieur Albert. Because he is the hero of the story, and because this story is aimed at young children, that is a big deal. I know of people who have very nearly died after getting into bike accide [...]

    4. Those who know me will understand what drew me to this picture book but if you don't, my husband is a bicycling aficionado and we enjoy watching the Tour de France when it airs on TV each July. What's odd about this book is that the elderly gentleman who decides to get into this race which traverses France, is very old-school and doesn't wear a helmet and doesn't appear to have a racing bike and yetwell, I don't want to spoil the ending so you'll have to read it yourself to find out!

    5. Having a French accent would have made my read-aloud of this better. Hell, having a French accent makes everything sound better. The story was a bit long but I enjoyed it. Everyone likes to cheer for the underdog.

    6. Not sure if this book is meant to be a slight dig to Lance Armstrong, but it's certainly cute. The rhyming is clever and there are plenty of french words to introduce to the reader. Unrealistic ending, but enjoy that the nice guy finishes first! :)

    7. Bookseller: LaurenDo you like bikes?Do you like racing-as fast as you can?Well so does Monsieur Albert, an older Parisian who decides to enter the Grand Cycle Race.Is it possible for him to finish- win?!!Read this lovely illustrated book to find out.
