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. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
