|As he watches Mr. Giotto decorate the walls and ceiling of a chapel with beautiful frescoes, little Mario longs to help, but Giotto always says no. When Father Prior inspects the work, he frowns and tells Giotto the sky is too dark. Try as he might, Giotto can't lighten the fresco. Later that night, as he watches his baby sister, Mario dreams up a wonderful plan to brighten the frescoes -- if only Mr. Giotto will listen! This appealing, informative story, enhanced by Gillian McClure's delightful illustrations, brings Giotto's work, and his world, to life.|
