Leonardo's Horse by Jean Fritz

Leonardo DaVinci was one of the most remarkable men who ever lived.  He had many dreams, and he worked to make some of his dreams come true.  He dreamed of flying, of creating a great painting of the Last Supper, and of building of a gigantic horse made of bronze.  His drawings and journals guided other artists and engineers to create great works.  Just before he died, what did Leonardo seem to regret most?  He did not complete his horse.

Can someone pass a dream on to someone else?  Can his 500 year old writings inspire someone else to work toward making that dream come true?

This is the story of an ancient dream that was passed on to the hands of a dreamer in the modern world.
