Synopsis

The Lost Diary of Leonardo's Paint Mixer by Alexandra Parsons

The ninth title in this successful series. A factually accurate but hilarious look at the life of Leonardo Da Vinci as he mixes with the colourful set in Renaissance Italy! From his passion for horses, to his painting of the Mona Lisa - all is revealed. Leonardo da Vinci's life from 1470 to 1519 as seen through the eyes of one, Luigi Cannelloni, Leonardo's trusty assistant. From his Adoration of the Magi; his passion for the structure of horses; his painting of the Mona Lisa not to mention the highlife of Renaissance Italy - all is revealed in an hilarious way. As with the other Lost Diaries, this is factually accurate but the fictional voice brings in the humour
