Description
"A scintillating sliver of history. . . . An inventive introduction to the Renaissance and one of its masters." ( Publishers Weekly , starred review) "An unusual and surprisingly touching story . . . . An offbeat and intriguing read." ( The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books , starred review) "At times sad, silly, and telling, this is a wholly entertaining book." ( School Library Journal , starred review) "Filled with engaging details of Leonardo and his world. . . . Illustrations which range from utterly recognizable scenes of Florence to the ghostly horses at Leonardo's deathbed. . . . An unusual biography for young people, and one well worth poring over . . . . A unique way of picturing a unique world . . . . An extraordinary tribute." ( Kirkus Reviews , starred review)
