Leonardo Da Vinci: Renaissance Master, the ninth book in The Treasure Chest series by Ann Hood is about Felix and Maisie Robbins who witness the near death of their Great-Uncle Thorne and plan to time travel to Renaissance Italy to get rid of an old Italian seal that they suspect has something to do with his illness. After arriving in 15th century Italy, the twins meet young Sandro Botticelli and young Leonardo Da Vinci. A short time later, Felix, Leonardo, Maisie and Sandro dine with the famous Medici family before heading to Carnival. Will their plans to save Great-Uncle Thorne succeed or will they be too late?

Leonardo Da Vinci: Renaissance Master was a great read. I really enjoyed the rich the dialogue between the characters. It feels like you are in the book because sometimes the author gives you clues and then you can figure something out for yourself. This is an excellent book for young history lovers as it is filled with historical facts and people. The way the story is written makes you want to learn more about them. The characters are very interesting. Each one has a different personality and will keep you entertained throughout the book. I had not heard of the series The Treasure Chest let alone read any of the books, so I had a little bit of trouble understanding some parts in the beginning of the story. Reading the first few books is therefore advisable. At 205 pages and 13 chapters, I think the length of this book is perfect.
