Ages 7-10.    Written in a light-hearted and contemporary style by Alice Harman and illustrated with the energetic artwork of Sir Quentin Blake, Mona Lisa and the Others is an entertaining introduction to the Louvre's collection. With a focus on portraits and other person-centered artworks, Mona Lisa and the Others reveals the stories behind some of the Louvre's most famous pieces. Napoleon Bonaparte takes readers behind the scenes at his own coronation; the Venus de Milo explains what happened to her missing arms; the Seated Scribe lets slip some gossip about the ancient Egyptian royal family. And of course, Mona Lisa reveals that there's more to her portrait than her mysterious smile.     96 pages hc
