This is an interesting mystery in the Capital Mysteries series, one that is far less dangerous and creepy than the others so far. KC and Marshall visit the Washington Monument and the National Zoo, adding a few more places to our to-see list now that we live in the area. Our girls have really enjoyed the books in this series.

KC and Marshall are friends; one night, while sleeping on the lawn of the White House (the US President is KC's new stepfather), they see twinkling lights in the top level of the Washington Monument. They decided to investigate and then solve the mystery!

It's funny how they find a monkey in the Washington Monument and they name him Washington. He is very smart and helps them solve the mystery. I really liked him.
