Dr. Marsha and the Case of the Missing Hot Dogs and Marshmallows by​Rachel B. Wellner

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was an interesting story. The characters are excited to travel to America to solve a mystery! They get to meet new friends on their adventure in Washington DC, and they learn some interesting facts!

The story is told through rhyme, which I always enjoy in kid’s books.

Overall, this was a good story with a really fun resolution that my daughter loved!
