It's difficult to describe how much information and enthusiasm author Kathleen Krull and narrator Rachel Leslie bring to this excellent work. Details of Da Vinci's childhood, adulthood, art, and science are all covered, as well as the history of his time. Leslie's refreshing, direct delivery describes Da Vinci’s world as he grows up and creates his astonishing art and science. Discussion of the importance of his notebooks, and their eventual fate, closes this fascinating story. Listeners are encouraged to visit museums and libraries online to continue learning about Da Vinci’s ideas and inventions, considered forward thinking even today. Listeners of all ages will learn much about Da Vinci, and enjoy doing so. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
