( 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)
