- Sci-fi author Mike Resnick has won more awards than Ray Bradbury or Isaac Asimov - Leonardo da Vinci, star of the best-selling The Da Vinci Code, is hot - Time travel, adventure, humor--Lady with an Alien is an Art Encounters tour de force! Lady with an Ermine, Leonardo da Vinci's portrait of a patron's mistress holding the symbol of her lover's family, is perhaps his most beautiful painting. But...is that what ermines really look like? Mike Resnick, the author of Hugo Award winners Kirinyaga and Seven Views of Olduvai Gorge, presents an exciting reimagining of this great painting in his first-ever book for young adults. The time-traveling hero, Mario Ravelli, develops a unique friendship with Leonardo da Vinci during a vacation from 2523 A.D. The story of how Mario's pet becomes the lady's ermine makes for an intriguing, entertaining journey to Renaissance Italy, and gives a unique look at the work and the creative process of a great master. From the Hardcover edition.
