    When Leonardo was born nobody seemed to love him or want him. I bet they didn't know what he would turn into. Leonardo was a great painter . Although he didn't paint tons of painting the ones he did where amazing . This is a great book for all ages . I rate this book 3/5 stars . Thank you for reading!-Pizzagirl7❤
