Publisher Description

'A GREAT WAY TO INTRODUCE HISTORY TO CHILDREN'

  • Kids' Book Review

    Danny da Vinci and his best friend Mick Angelo are adventurers - artistic adventurers - who share a passion for painting and sculpture.

Together the young artists meet the very important Duke of Milan, who in The Giant Horse of Milan commissions Danny's Uncle Leo to produce a marble statue of himself - with unexpected results. In The Flying Machine of Lombardy, the Duke issues a challenge to create a flying machine, and in The Secret of the Mona Lisa, Danny and Mick want to enter the art exhibition that the Duke holds every year, and surprisingly it is Danny's sister Lisa who inspires them.

Created by talented duo Rosie Smith and Bruce Whatley, this clever and funny collection celebrates the extraordinary artistic genius of Leonardo da Vinci.

PRAISE FOR DANNY DA VINCI: THE SECRET OF THE MONA LISA

'Rosie Smith and Bruce Whatley have produced a charming introduction to the work of Leonardo da Vinci' - The Children's Book Council of Australia's Reading Time

'Here is a picture book with a difference! ... It is a great way to introduce history to children, engaging them to think beyond the book and research the life of Leonardo da Vinci ... It would appeal to reluctant readers with its interesting content and easy-read qualities ... I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as did my daughter, who immediately after reading, grabbed some clay and began sculpting a masterpiece!' - Kids' Book Review
