Who stole the thumb off the Lincoln Memorial?
When KC and Marshall discover a chunk missing from the Lincoln Memorial, they’re in a rush to solve the mystery. It couldn’t have happened at a worse time: tonight is the celebration of the sculptor, and the statue can’t be broken!
With Who Broke Lincoln’s Thumb, the Capital Mysteries series has officially established itself. Its focal point is one of the famous D.C. memorials, the Lincoln Memorial. So KC and Marshall’s mystery can offer children an enjoyable reading experience while it offers their parents a chance to teach their children some history.
For children who live near D.C., a trip to the Lincoln Memorial would be a great idea. And of course, there’s also the opportunity of further research into Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War, slavery, and civil rights.
