While dragging the
back to a new prison after their umpteenth escape, Luke comes across a French
sculptor, Bartholdi, who’s touring the West with a strange sculpture: a
colossal hand holding a torch. In fact, it’s part of the now famous Statue of
Liberty, and Bartholdi is raising funds towardsits construction and transport
It’s not long before our cowboy is recruited by his government to escort Lady
Liberty from Paris!
And as if that wasn’t enough, the extremely valuable Torah that travels with them has caught the eyes of some unsavoury characters...
In case you are wondering what a Torah is well, in Judaism, the law of God as revealed to Moses and recorded in the first five books of the Hebrew scriptures (the Pentateuch). You see, you get an education for free.
Nice clean art and gags and I doubt many will realise that it’s the “new team” on this one. Apparently someone has been buying the series from number 1 onward because of my reviews…that is a lot of money! At least they are being bought for kids. Even I don't have 1-6!
This is escapist fun for all the family...no banana involved!
