Publisher's Summary

Leonardo da Vinci was a gifted painter, talented musician, and dedicated scientist and inventor, designing flying machines, submarines, and even helicopters. Yet he had a hard time finishing things, a problem anyone can relate to. Only 13 paintings are known to be his; as for the illustrated encyclopedia he intended to create, all that he left were thousands of disorganized notebook pages. Here is an accessible portrait of a fascinating man who lived at a fascinating time - Italy during the Renaissance.

My son really loved this!

He's 6 and into art so we had to stop a lot for me to explain certain things but it's been months (possibly a year) since we've read this and he still quotes some of the info he learned e.g. "Mum I'm like Leonardo da Vinci, I never finish my books!" I had to laugh!
