Part of the highly-successful Anholt's Artists series about great painters, which tells the stories of real meetings between world-famous artists and the children who knew them. Zoro is the young pupil of the amazing painter, sculptor, scientist and inventor, Leonardo da Vinci. Every day he works hard in Leonardo's workshop, mixing colours, cleaning paintbrushes and practising his drawings. But he is never allowed inside the secret locked room, where Leonardo spends hours hammering and sawing at a mysterious invention. One day Leonardo brings a mischievous boy named Salai to work for him. He is so intrigued by the secret room that he steals the keys to find out what is inside... Leonardo and the Flying Boy provides an exciting introduction to the great genius of the Italian Renaissance, with reproductions of Leonardo's own work.

Reviews

"This book encourages children to understand that human beings can have a creative vision and reach out to change things... An inspirational book." Books for Keeps "As well as providing a slice of art history, this book also celebrates the intellect and love of learning and reminds us that the world needs eccentrics." School Librarian "... A lyrical text and stunning pictures by Laurence Anholt (together with some equally stunning illustrations by Leonardo himself). In all an entertaining introduction to the genius of Leonardo Da Vinci" Carousel
