Ron Roy writes great mysteries for kids. They're formulatic, yes. But that's half the fun. The Capital Mysteries have the added value about teaching readers fun facts about Washington DC that don't seem like history lessons at all when they're woven into the plot. I learned all kinds of fun facts about Camp David and giggled alot too, while solving this crime with my kids.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
We are really enjoying the Capital Mysteries series by Ron Roy. We just moved to the Washington DC area and love that we are learning more about the various historic locations nearby. Our girls enjoy the exciting plots and I like that they are interested in seeing the places we read about. We are looking forward to the next book, Capital Mysteries #13: Trapped on the D.C. Train! (A Stepping Stone Book, which should be out in May.
The twelth in the Capital Mysteries where readers are introduced to DC places with KC, the President's step daughter, and her best friend Marshall. Pretty light weight reading but I'd hand it to younger readers because of the references to places we can get to very easily living next door to DC. (Well, maybe not Camp David!)
when legend says that on each of the dead president's birthday it haunts Camp David and KC and Marshall are not afraid because a president's dead birthday is coming up and KC and Marshall will sill be there and then all these weird stuff are happening they don't know if its the ghost that's doing or maybe someone else.
Its about how weird things happen in Camp David and KC and Marshall want to know who is doing all of that stuff.
This book was exciting, surprising, and a little bit scary!
4.5 stars. Favorite book of this series so far.
Pretty bad. Poor the children!
Great story! I love this series!
