Leonardo da Vinci Gets a Do-Overby Mark P. Friedlander
This book imagines that the great Renaissance Master Leonardo da Vinci—artist, anatomist, engineer, inventor, musician—was offered a chance to come back in the year 2000 to use his incredible brain with 21st century technology to better humankind. Unfortunately, the only people who believe the reincarnated da Vinci are a handful of American middle school students, who must help him adapt to modern scientific advancement. Will the students be able to help Leonardo evade the mayor of Florence’s selfish grasp so he can complete his quest before his time runs out again? Readers tag along with Max, Tad, and Gina as they assist Leonardo on his pursuit, discover the secrets of his life, and teach the Maestro about modern science, math, history, art, and more. Despite their age, these young sidekicks inspire and spark change, and will remind young readers that they can do the same!
