Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Krull convincingly portrays her subject, noting the Renaissance man’s remarkably far-reaching accomplishments while also conveying his humanity and sense of humor. She places him in the context of his times…[and] the vital link between science and art that endured throughout Leonardo’s life…With an inviting, conversational narrative…this series launches with an impressive start.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“With a totally captivating opening and a conversational writing style…the book moves along at a steady clip and adds details to bring da Vinci and his times to life…Readers will come away from this accessible volume with an understanding of who Leonardo was and a desire to know more about this fascinating, brilliant man.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“The breezy text draws heavily from Leonardo’s own writings, discussing his groundbreaking forays into anatomy, water management and flight, always propelled by a commitment to direct scientific observation. That Krull manages, in some 100-plus text pages, to present Leonardo’s scientific accomplishments while at the same time conveying a sense of the man himself…is no mean feat and bodes well for the succeeding volumes in the series.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
