Black dog books, 2010. ISBN 978 1742031620.
What if the Mona Lisa was sick of hanging around the gallery? What if she decided to do something else? Well, in Mademoiselle Lisa, you get to see just what the most famous painting in the world would get up to if given the chance!
Mademoiselle Lisa is a picture book, aimed at older students (middle primary and up) but will be enjoyed by many ages. Teachers could use it as an introduction to studying Leonardo da Vinci in Art or as a model to help children create their own picture book with them as the star. The book would look good on a coffee table and even if you have no interest in Art, you will enjoy the idea of being someone else, even if it is for just a day (or two).
