In the third graphic novel of the Secret Smithsonian Adventures series, our heroes visit the National Museum of American History and realize that someone is trying to turn America from a democracy into a monarchy. They must stop this plan to make a president into a king!
Schoolmates Eric, Dominique, Ajay, and Josephine are in their homes getting ready for a normal school day after two successful time-travel adventures. But the day might not turn out to be so normal after all! The kids’ parents remind them that today is Coronation Day, and when they get to school, they find the Pledge of Allegiance replaced with an Oath to the King. Clearly, something is amiss, and the only way to fix it is to return to the Smithsonian, this time to the National Museum of American History. Their problems don’t end there: the museum’s famed American Presidency exhibition has been replaced with one on America’s monarchs, complete with a portrait of George Washington being crowned as the first king! Enlisting the help of Gilbert Stuart, John Trumbull, and Thomas Jefferson and using their American history smarts, our heroes must try to thwart this wicked plot to change history.
In the second graphic novel of the Secret Smithsonian Adventures series, our heroes intervene to save the National Museum of Natural History from villains who want to bring dinosaurs back to life–to make money!
As schoolmates Dominique, Eric, Josephine, and Ajay are returning home from their first time-travel adventure at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, they realize there are dinosaurs all over their neighborhoods! When they return to the Smithsonian to figure out what’s amiss, they see that the National Museum of Natural History is now called The Museum of Extinction, many modern animals have become extinct, and dinosaurs have returned. They travel back in time to the 1876 Philadelphia Exhibition and discover that the nefarious Barris brothers have brought back dinosaur eggs as a new business venture. Enlisting the help of William Foulke, Nellie Bly, and Alexander Graham Bell and using their natural history smarts, our heroes must try and thwart this wicked plot. But the kids’ story doesn’t end there–something is amiss in the next stop on their Smithsonian tour, the National Museum of American History–so they’ll have to work together to save history again in volume three.
The first graphic novel of the Secret Smithsonian Adventures series. Our heroes intervene to save the National Air and Space Museum from Wright brothers interlopers!
Schoolmates Dominique, Eric, Josephine, and Ajay are excited about a field trip to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. When they get there, however, they find a very different museum than the one they were expecting. Not only is it much smaller, it’s filled with balloons, blimps, and dirigibles, many of them with the same logo: BARRIS AIRSHIPS. Where’s the Spirit of St. Louis? Where’s the Apollo 11 command module? Where’s the Wright Brothers’ 1903 flyer? With the help of a museum “fabrications specialist,” they travel through time to try and restore the Wright brothers to their well-earned place in history. Along the way they also learn about aerodynamics and other aviation principles from a wise-cracking A.I. named Smitty. But the kids’ story doesn’t end there–something is amiss in the next stop on their Smithsonian tour, the National Museum of Natural History–so they’ll have to work together to save history again in volume two.
