Steal Back the Mona Lisa!
While our hero, Jack (names may have been changed to protect secret-agent identities), sleeps in New York, a couple of crooked crooks are stealing the Mona Lisa from the Louvre in Paris. Their intentions are dark - they plan to deface the famous painting with a moustache! Can brave Jack come to the rescue...before it's too late? With bold cartoon illustrations and action-packed text, the talented Meghan McCarthy has created a whirlwind spy tale filled with speeding cars, daring escapes, and astounding heroism. This title includes an author's note with information about the actual theft of the "Mona Lisa" in 1911.
