About the Author:

Pat Hutchins (Author) PAT HUTCHINS grew up in a small village in North Yorkshire, and spent most of her time drawing and writing stories. At sixteen she won a scholarship to study illustration at Darlington School of Art and then went on to Leeds College of Art.

Together they moved to America for two years where Pat worked as an illustrator. Her first picture book, Rosie's Walk, was published in New York and received a 1968 ALA Notable Book award. Since moving back to England Pat has produced over forty books for children, and she has won many prizes including the highly prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1974 for The Wind Blew. Pat's books have been translated into many different languages and she has visited schools and libraries all over the world.

From AudioFile:

Class 3 of Hampsted Primary School travels to Paris for sight-seeing and fun, only to find itself immersed in solving the theft of the Mona Lisa. An animated reading of the story gives the long narrative continuity and adds depth to the plot and characters. Forsyth keeps the action moving, enlivening each new part of the adventure with enthusiasm and the youthful reactions of the children. Seamless transitions between characters, plus her pleasant reading voice, greatly add to the listening experience. She performs the accents of the various French characters effectively, capturing the flavor of France and adding a touch of the exotic. Forsyth's voice catches just the right tones of excitement and suspense. P.A.J. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
