Five cleverly illustrated books for boys and girls tell true stories about five very unusual children, later recognized by the world as men and women of genius. But before everything else, they were children. And like every child, they loved to play, and to use their imaginations. Today's children will delight in these stories, while they are also introduced to children who grew up and changed our world. Leonardo's father wondered what would become of this little boy, who was interested in so many things. Maybe, in to many things! Sometimes he drew pictures, sometimes he studied insects and animals, sometimes he even studied the way that the wind blew. "Won't he ever settle down to one interest?" Leonardo's father wondered. But Leonardo never changed. He grew up to be an artist... a scientist... an inventor... In other words, a genius!
