In Galileo's Treasure Box (1987) by Catherine Brighton, young Virginia finds the tools of her father's work: two clear pieces of glass (that, combined, would create the modern telescope), a blue glass, a red glass and a feather. An afterword explains their significance; Brighton's artwork, rendered with a Renaissance perspective, makes the most of stairwells, doorways even the leaning tower of Pisa. (July)
