The money to build it was given to Washington, D.C., over a hundred years ago, but now one man is claiming that money should be his. KC and Marshall think they can prove Mr. Fisher is a big liar. But if they are wrong, the Smithsonian will belong to 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!
