From talented duo Rosie Smith and Bruce Whatley comes a fresh and funny book that celebrates the extraordinary artistic genius of Leonardo da Vinci.
Danny da Vinci and his best friend Mick Angelo are adventurers - artistic adventurers - who share a passion for painting and sculpture.
Every year the Duke of Milan holds an art exhibition, and this year the Duke has asked Danny's Uncle Leo to paint his portrait.
Danny and Mick want to enter something in the exhibition too, something special. Danny's sister Lisa has an idea, but why should they listen to her? She's such a moaner!
About the Author
Bruce Whatley is one of Australia's most highly regarded and talented authors and illustrators for children, both here and internationally. Since 1992 Bruce has written and/or illustrated over 70 picture books. In 2002 he paired with author Jackie French and illustrated Diary of a Wombat, which was the start of an extraordinary creative collaboration.
Husband and wife team Bruce Whatley and Rosie Smith have an advertising background, working in both London and Sydney. Their first picture book, The Ugliest Dog in the World, was published in 1992 and was followed closely by Looking for Crabs. Both award-winning titles are still in print.
