    1. Young Beppo is the indentured servant of a wine barrel salesman in Italy, circa 1606. Treated horribly, he is none the less loyal and does his job.

Together they travel as fugitives about Italy, fleeing the Pope and other nobleman. Beppo becomes Caravaggio's servant/apprentice, learning about painting and art. While ha [...]

    2. 15 year old Beppo is an indentured slave falsely accused of murder. Unfortunately in Renaissance Italy, justice is not available to him. So he runs off with Caravaggio, the famous artist, also accused of murder to save themselves from the police. Full of danger, swordplay, markets, castles and caves, the historical setting is both accurate and richly detailed. The reader will be left wondering how to tell cruelty from madness and madness from genius. Highly recommended for teens with a love of a [...]

    3. The fastest read I've had in a while. It's probably best if you don't know anything about Caravaggio, or expect a book about Caravaggio (it's really about his young servant, Beppo). The plot is rather fanciful and fairytale-ish. And happily ever after (again, if one overlooks Caravaggio himself).Read this one on impulse because of the title, and it made me wonder why I bother to read YA books.

    4. For anyone who has ever imagined what it might have been like to live as a teen on the run during the Italian Renaissance--a time of art, literature, music, sword fights, castles, and child slavery. This is a great teen historical novel that transports the reader to a different world to experience a danger-filled Renaissance adventure.
