ABC Books, 2008.
(Age - Middle Primary) A small graphic novel with some factual information through the story. Danny DaVinci, his sister Lisa Leonardo and his friends Mick Angelo work and play in his uncle Leo's art studio. When the Duke of Milan issues a challenge for someone to build a flying machine the boys think they have a plan that will see them gain the reward. Lisa quietly sorts out the problems as they arise and as the boys become more involved in creating the machine. A short story that could be a starting point for a more indepth look at any of the many ideas and characters mentioned in the story.
