We've read most of the Capital Mysteries and have really enjoyed the series. This was one of our favorites. We enjoyed learning about Monticello and laughed at Spikes antics. The mystery was exciting and not overly dangerous for KC and Marshall. Now that we live in Virginia, it's wonderful to read about the various monuments and historical places that we can visit here.

KC and Marshall are painting a closet in the Whitehouse. They find a box of horses that belong to Thomas Jefferson so they go with KC's mom to Monticello. Soon after it is stolen, how could it be stolen? The box has only two keys. It has to be a worker, but which worker and how?
Its about how KC and Marshall find a box of horses for Thomas Jefferson and its made in 1803.They soon deliver it in his house and then someone stole the horses without someone looking.
while painting k.c. and Marshall find a cubbyhole that was abandoned and they find Thomas jefforson's toys and take it to where jeffroson lived and then the next day its stolen.
