"If your vacation plans include a trip to a national park this summer, you might want to check out some of the books in a...series called ‘Mysteries in Our National Parks.’ Each story takes place in a different park, but you’ll get more than a travel guide. There’s plenty of excitement, too." Washington Post Kids Post
