Who Stole Mona Lisa?

Publisher: Bloomsbury

This is the fascinating and fact filled story of the world’s most famous painting narrated by the Mona Lisa herself. It recounts the detailed history, from the creation of the painting by Leonardo Di Vinci, who stared at it while he ate pasta, though the time when it hung on the walls of Kings, who feasted on frogs legs and wine, and then hung in the Louvre in Paris while people came from all over the world to see it.

In 1911 the Mona Lisa was dramatically stolen from the museum, sparking a world-wide search. You can find out what happens next in this stylishly illustrated book full of interesting historical detail.
