Synopsis

Who Stole Mona Lisa? by Ruthie Knapp

She has a famous smile, and millions come to see her every year. Who is she? Why, the Mona Lisa, of course. But did you know that she was once kidnapped? Narrated by the lady of the enigmatic smile herself, this is a stylishly whimsical biography of the glorious, wonderful, sometimes dangerous life of the best-recognised painting of all time.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
