Description

Join George the sheep and his owner Leon on a whimsical adventure inspired by the inventive spirit of Leonardo da Vinci.

When George mysteriously shrinks in the rain and grows in the sun, Leon sets out to solve the puzzle with da Vinci's ingenuity. From crafting bat wings to a wheeled chariot, Leon's creative attempts lead to the perfect solution—an oversized umbrella. But when wind disrupts their invention, Leon, like his fifteenth-century namesake, persists in finding a remedy. 

This heartwarming story not only entertains, but also educates young readers about the art of invention. With charming illustrations and an engaging narrative, children will be inspired to embrace creativity, problem-solving, the joy of invention and the enduring spirit of exploration embodied by Leonardo da Vinci.
