KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of the building of the Statue of Liberty told with brief text and bold, colorful illustrations. The text is supplemented with tables including dimensions, facts about important people, dates in the statue's history, and information on past and current restorations. The spacious full-page pen and watercolor illustrations contribute a wealth of detail, showing the size of the statue in relation to the men working on it, the artist's drawings, clay models, wooden frame, and metal skeleton, as well as the final mounting on Bedloe's Island. An attractive addition to the many books being published for the Statue's centennial.
