Review:
In the series of adventures that sends brother Jack and sister Annie on journeys via their magic tree house, Mary Pope Osbourne 's stories are admired by kids of all ages. In Monday with a Mad Genius, Merlin dispatches the sibling team on a mission to find the second of the four secrets to happiness. Transported back to the Renaissance period in 16th-century Italy, Jack and Annie meet Leonardi da Vinci and learn about his personality quirks, famous works, painting habits, familial history--and the secret behind Mona Lisa's enigmatic smile. In the course of the story they find the secret to help Merlin with his sorrows--and the reader comes away with a wonderful discovery--or two--in the telling of the tale.
