September 28th, 2018

In award-winning author Brianna DuMont's Thrilling Thieves: Liars, Cheats, and Cons Who Changed History, follow the trail of twelve troublemakers to learn what really made the Mona Lisa the most iconic painting in the world, meet the most powerful pirate from history (it’s probably not who you’re expecting), and watch empires rise and fall with the theft of a simple tea plant.
