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.
