Bravo! This is an exceptional book. Although the tale is fictional, the story is built on historical fact. Together, the author and illustrator have done a masterful job presenting the Renaissance in a way that has meaning to young readers. The interaction among the characters - particularly Lorenzo and Pippo - layer this period piece with timeless themes of jealousy, fairness, and integrity. The story makes this a nice candidate for remedial readers who want/need more sophisticated content.
