Tibaldo and the Hole in the Calendar is the story of a boy who fights to prevent the loss of his birthday. It is set during a time in history when the Gregorian calendar replaces the Julian calendar in 1582. In order to effectively reset the calendar, the decision is made to omit 10 days for the year, and Tibaldo's birthday falls during this time. I really enjoyed the setting of the book. It was historically and scientifically accurate. I could not find any fault that stood out. This book would be very useful for use in a science class when talking about the Renaissance.
