Publisher's Summary

Visiting France to view some famous medieval bibles (and confusing the natives with his 'fluent' French), Cyril Bonhamy mistakes the most dangerous criminal in France for the director of the Bibliothèque, and is plunged into one of the most terrifying adventures of his life. Pursued by gendarmes through the sewers of Nice, speeding towards Belgium in a white Mercedes, and in mortal combat with the world's strongest man, Olaf Lockjaw, Cyril is all the while feverishly plotting his escape from the fiends he must bring to justice.

Fun for a drive with kids (ages 6-10)

What did you love best about Cyril Bonhamy and the Great Drain Robbery?

Our whole family loved Hugh Laurie's narration. He made this a fun listen by making best of the accents and exagerating the silliness of the story with his expressive performance.


What did you like best about this story?

It's a very silly story filled with physical comedy - perfect to keep our kids aged 6 and 8 entertained on a drive to a holiday destination.


What does Hugh Laurie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A performer like Laurie was needed to make best of the physical comedy parts!


Any additional comments?

I wish there were more kids' books read by Laurie available on Audible.
