What better place to be on the fourth than Washington, D.C.? But KC spots fireworks coming from a very peculiar place - the FBI building! Although the president thinks it was an accident, KC and her friend Marshall know better. They are sure those fireworks were covering up a clever crime!

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!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
On their walk back to the White House after the 4th of July fireworks on the National Mall, KC, her best friend Marshall, her mother, and her stepfather (who is the President of the United States) see rockets shooting out of a window at the FBI Headquarters. A clean but charred pizza box holds a clue to the mystery. Astute KC and Marshall eavesdrop on a presidential conversation and discuss the case with the President as they get closer to solving the mystery. A map of Washington, DC, shows the location of many of the city's landmarks that are mentioned in the book. Readers can follow KC and Marshall as they move around the city. Full-page graphite drawings are interspersed throughout the text. This simple mystery is just right for readers ready for stories beyond the beginning reader section. Implausible, but enjoyable. 2006, A Stepping Stone Book/Random House, and Ages 6 to 9.
