It was a good read before our trip to Washington to get to talk about the sites we would see
Slow, dull read. Clunky sentence structure, unnatural dialog, outdated references, little action, no humor, no suspense in this "mystery."

This was a cute story that went through Washington D.C. I appreciated that it introduces a lot of the museums and the sites to children, but I don't think the punishment was severe enough for the culprit.

Okay bookIt was predictable but otherwise it was exciting and mysterious. It was detailed and it was scary I recommend this book but you should read this book as the second one In the series because other books will spoil it if you reed it out of order
i like this book because they tell you a lot about washingtion dc
Simple to read children book. Though predictable, it's a total classic of its own.
Went along with our trip to Washington.
The kids were more interesting when they lived in the boxcar. Now they're pretty much spoiled rich kids. A bit of a bait and switch between the first and second book.
One of my favorite childhood series. I read all the books I could get my hands on :)
