Look, Roger, It's Florence is the story of a 3 year old boy whose magical talent has been noted. Roger has been invited to Florence (Italy) to receive a one day free art lesson from the current Maestro del Arte del Renaissance. During that day, he receives his own pair of wings and flies through the air with the greatest of joy
Roger has a natural affinity for flying. His current wish is for a pair of wings with which to soar Luckily for Roger, his mother, being far too busy with work, has asked his aunt Janet to look after him. Aunt Janet has a few tricks up her sleeve. She has a pilot's license and a small airplane that has room for two people and a dog. In they hop and off the go, flying over the rather large Atlantic Ocean.
Roger and Aunt Janet land just outside of Florence. Their first destination is breakfast at Gilli's. After breakfast, they tour the town. Santa Maria del Fiore, Il Duomo, the Giotto bell tower. In the Piazza Santissima Annunzia, an old man has molded a set of wings just the right size for Roger. He puts on his wings and FLYs.
He flies to Arturo for his art lesson, which is declared a masterpiece
Time to go home. All night long, they fly back across the Atlantic (in Aunt Janet's plane) and arrive just in time. Roger's mother has no idea that the three of them -- Roger, Aunt Janet, and D'Art the dog have had such a marvelous adventure.
