From popular A to Z Mysteries author Ron Roy comes a red, white, and blue mystery perfect for President's Day! 
In the first book of the Capital Mysteries—an early chapter book mystery series featuring fun facts and famous sites from Washington, D.C.— KC Corcoran always watches the news. So it's no surprise that she notices right away when the President of the United States starts acting funny on TV. He's stiff and awkward. He's even signing papers with the wrong hand. There's only one explanation - the president has been cloned! And it's up to KC and her best friend, Marshall, to save him.
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!
