This review is being written by my 7 year old son. This book was about a ghost who haunted the Capitol and many other places. I liked the way the characters looked closely at the clues and tried to solve the mystery. I would definitely recommend this book. This book is similar to the A to Z and Calendar Mysteries which I really enjoy also.
