It’s a red, white, and blue mystery from popular A to Z Mysteries author Ron Roy!

 

The Secret at Jefferson's Memorial

 

In the eleventh book of the Capital Mysteries—an early chapter book mystery series featuring fun facts and famous sites from Washington, D.C.—KC and Marshall are painting a closet in the White House when they come across a forgotten cubbyhole. Hidden inside is an old box of homemade toy horses that one belonged to Thomas Jefferson! KC and Marshall take the historic treasure to Jefferson's home, Monticello, but right after they get there, the box - with all the horses inside - is stolen! How did a thief snatch the horses from right under everyone's noses? KC and Marshall are going to find out!

 

Each book highlights one of the famous museums, buildings, or monuments from the Washington area and includes a map and a two-page fun fact spread with photographs. Parents, teachers, and librarians agree that these highly collectible chapter books are perfect for emerging readers and any kid who love mysteries!

Synopsis:

Goodbye, D.C.! Hello, Monticello!

While painting a closet in the White House, KC discovers an old box full of handmade toy horses that once belonged to Thomas Jefferson. KC and Marshall go to Monticello, Jeffersons home, to return the horses, but just after they get there, the box with the horses inside disappears! They have to explore historic Monticello, with its dank wine cellar, tiny dumbwaiter elevator, and spooky family cemetery to track down the thief before the horses are gone for good!
