(Mysteries In History 2)
The adventure of a lifetime is only one click away!
Sid Cooper is a soon-to-be sixth-grader who loves history, travel and photography—which come together in this second chapter book in a series about travel and adventure while solving a mystery in history.
A visit to the Statue of Liberty takes an unexpected turn when Sid and his sister Meg are magically transported… over 130 years into the past, to when the pedestal was being built, and the statue was still in pieces waiting to be assembled!
Sid and Meg get a first-hand history lesson, but soon realize that the statue may never be built! Sightings of a ghost are scaring the construction workers, who plan to leave the island without completing the pedestal. How will Sid and Meg solve the mystery of the ghost of Lady Liberty and get back to the present?
In The Ghost of Lady Liberty, author Lyndon Cerejo transports young readers yet again on a time-travel adventure at another historic monument. They can follow along as Sid and Meg try to save history-and themselves-while learning about the Statue of Liberty. History, interesting facts, recent photographs and illustrations enhance the realistic narrative, making this an educational and entertaining book for readers aged 5-10.
Ananya Chopra, a sixth-grader like Sid, once again lends her talent to the Mysteries in History series, illustrating Sid’s journey to Lady Liberty in her friendly style.
Let your child open their minds and their hearts as they go on a journey back in time and learn about the Statue of Liberty. From her origins in France, to her delayed and challenging reconstruction in America. They will learn that she wasn’t always green, why her torch was replaced, why people can no longer climb up to her torch, and much more!
Let your child open their minds and their hearts to this exciting tale… as a magical land of adventure awaits!

When did his family last visit the Taj Mahal in India?
Ahh… the trip that started this children’s book series. Look for the answer in The Missing Gems of the Taj Mahal.
Does he really still play with LEGOs?
Look for proof in the picture at the start of Chapter 10 of The Missing Gems of the Taj Mahal. Lyndon has more LEGO minifigures than his sons’ collections combined.
