TWO OLD MEN AND A BABY Or, How Hendrik and Evert Get Themselves into a Jam

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nicholas Guy Smith

Fiction • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Nicholas Guy Smith narrates this oddball adventure of two Dutch septuagenarians who accidentally find themselves in possession of a baby girl. Hendrik and Evert are looking forward to an enjoyable evening of camaraderie and relaxation. On his way to Hendrik's apartment, Evert ducks into a school bathroom to relieve himself, but after a series of small and extremely funny misfortunes, he inadvertently kidnaps the infant who is intended to play the baby Jesus in the school's Nativity play. Smith's droll delivery and tongue-in-cheek humor make the tale hilarious and a little scary. As the two try to return the baby without being arrested, more craziness ensues. Complete with frantic teachers, distraught parents, bumbling cops, snarky teenagers, and some larceny-minded opportunists, Smith's performance is as delightful as they come. S.J.H.
