Horn Book Review

Siblings Jack and Annie present the fruits of their research about the great Renaissance painter, whom they met in Monday with a Mad Genius. Though the narration, interrupted by subheads, sidebars, and tangents, is a little unfocused, the text is replete with interesting details about its subject. Black-and-white reproductions and Murdocca's ever-reliable drawings round out the volume. Reading list, websites. Ind. (c) Copyright 2010.
