Leonardo’s Secret

 
 



This is the first in a series of children’s fiction books to follow the life of “Tuttle the Turtle”. A turtle who lived so long, he evolved into an independent thinking and speaking mastermind. Follow Tuttle as he influences many famous and sometimes infamous people throughout history.


When young Leonardo da Vinci, a busboy, was asked to make turtle soup, one of the turtles begged for his life! It was Tuttle. Tuttle, tried to convince Leonardo that there is a big world out there, and he could show him all about it, if he would just take a chance.


Through humor and chaos, Leonardo’s inventions come to life, only to find out that everyone one else sees them for something different in the end.

KidFirst.org says:
”It introduces children to da Vinci and gets them thinking of what he was like as a child. Having a turtle behind his inventions is a humorous and creative way to get kids' attention. The last scene hooks you - when chaos reins and an invention is formed out of the disaster. Another hook - the tension when da Vinci thinks the turtle is getting baked. This is good, clean fun with a fun ending.”
