J. Patrick Lewis (Author) has written a remarkable book that is a fascinating account of the heist of the world's most renowned masterpiece! And Gary Kelley (Illustrator) has created luminous artwork redolent of many artists of the early 20th century - mesmerizing and mysterious!

An intriguing piece of history, this book has been a delight to share with children ages 6-18.

With The Stolen Smile, artist Gary Kelley and author J. Patrick Lewis journey to 1911 Paris in their second picturebook, where the Mona Lisa has gone missing from the Louvre museum. An Italian knows the secret of the missing painting in this story, spiced with the proud thief's insights and based on true events surrounding the disappearance of the Mona Lisa from one of the world's most famous museums.
