Pub. Date:
A double celebration for Independence Day!

In this wonderfully unique book, Jane Yolen and Jim Burke weave two stories at once, as readers see young Gitl in Russia leaving her home for faraway America, wondering what new name she will choose for herself when she arrives, and young artist Frederic Auguste Bartholdi dreaming of a monument he wants to build to honor freedom. It is an arduous journey for Gitl as she and her family travel across land and sea to arrive on this shore, but when she sees the magnificent Statue of Liberty standing in New York Harbor, she knows her name in this great new country must be ?Liberty.?

Just in time for Independence Day, Jim Burke?s magnificent paintings capture Yolen?s inspired tale of a girl and an artist and their passionate belief in freedom.
