The Ghost at Camp David
 
In the twelfth book of the Capital Mysteries—an early chapter book mystery series featuring fun facts and famous sites from Washington, D.C.—a legend says that on a dead president's birthday, his ghost haunts the famous retreat, Camp David. KC and Marshall are going there on October 14, President Eisenhower's birthday. They aren't worried, until strange things start happening. How did a bat get trapped in their cabin? Why is there blood-red dirt in the trunk by the couch? And what is making the weird thumping noise? It's not Eisenhower's ghost...is it?

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 - Vicki Foote
The President's stepdaughter, KC, and her friend Marshall fly in a helicopter to Camp David to spend a weekend with the First Family. KC sees something scurrying between the trees as they are landing in the fog. She cannot tell if it was a human or a wild animal. After landing, they learn more about Camp David and learn about the legend that all the ghosts of all the former presidents come back to visit on their birthdays. They find out that it is Dwight Eisenhower's birthday and wonder if the former President's ghost may be visiting tonight. KC and Marshall get to stay in a small cabin by themselves, and after getting settled, they go out for a walk. They have a few little adventures on their nature walk. That night a bat gets in their cabin and they hear knocking noises under the floor. It all gets more serious when the knocking noises turn out to be the housekeeper who was kidnapped so that some thieves could steal a collection of silver. It all comes to a satisfying ending and the mystery is solved. Several pages at the end give factual information about Camp David. This text is part of the "Stepping Stones Books: Capital Mysteries." This is a good chapter book for young readers who enjoy a mystery with suspense, and they will also learn a bit about Camp David. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
