Publisher Description:

Discover the inspiring story of Leonardo da Vinci, the artist, inventor, and engineer of the Italian Renaissance…

Leonardo was a creative genius who wanted to understand how things worked. This book traces his life, from his birth in a hilltop village near Florence, Italy, through to his work as a painter, sculptor, and engineer. Leonardo made hundreds of drawings and paintings, including the Mona Lisa--probably the most famous painting in the world. Learn how Leonardo made detailed sketches of the human body and designs of parachutes, helicopters, and armored tanks--many years before the technology existed to build them.
