Monsieur Albert Rides to Glory by Peter Smith
Monsieur Albert Larousse is a cycling fanatic who lives in a tiny Parisian attic, up six flights of stairs in apartment 6A, a ten-minute ride from the Rue de la Paix. He picks up the paper at breakfast one day, and reads it while drinking his cafe au lait. 'Grand Cycle Race - fabulous prize to be won!' 'Magnifique!' exclaims Albert, and butters a bun.
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
