Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2009 Fall)
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. Copyright 2009 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
