My 7yr old adores these books, he can't get enough! I bought this particular book this afternoon and within 2 and a half hours or so he had already finished it and was asking for more! I love that he is engaging himself and fostering his love for reading AND that he is learning so much at the same time. Can't recommend this series enough!

My son has always loved the Magic Tree House books, but he had a hard time getting excited about this latest book in the series. I read it myself afterwards, and I must say I agree with his lack of enthusiasm. Monday with a Mad Genius is a very, very educational book. Mary Pope Osborne has, as always, done impeccable research, and the details about the life of Leonardo da Vinci, everyday life in Florence, and Renaissance art are all great. A child can learn a lot from this book. It's not, however, very exciting literature. The pace is very slow (for example, Jack and Annie seem to spend an extraordinary amount of time in the marketplace, being told by a series of people: "Oh, Leonardo? He just left - I think he went that way..."). Some of the best Magic Tree House books, like Christmas in Camelot, have quite exciting plots and some literary qualities as well. In Monday with a Mad Genius, the interesting questions (why did Mona Lisa smile?) seem to drown in excessive historical details.

My son liked this book because it mixes fiction with actual facts about Leonardo da Vinci. It was a painless way to learn and be entertained at the same time.
