"...useful tool to introduce history and inventions to reluctant readers or students..." --School Library Journal "An entertaining, enlightening intro." --Booklist "[This] accessible and informative account [is] a worthy successor to Barretta's other men-and-ideas books." --The New York Times "A glowing tribute to the inventor who continues to influence modern life." --Kirkus, starred "Barretta's warm and funny watercolors create an inviting portrait of an influential man..." --Publishers Weekly "This accessible introduction will inspire children to look closely at the world around them and come up with some creations of their own." --School Library Journal on Neo Leo: The Ageless Ideas of Leonardo da Vinci "While teachers are sure to reach for this entertaining resource again and again, the humor, illustrations, wordplay and story are strong enough that casual readers will pick this up, chuckle and even (gasp!) learn." --Kirkus Reviews on Dear Deer
