When Vulcan George Washington’s favorite foxhoundhears a mysterious visitor is expected at a big Mount Vernon party that night, he heads out to hunt down clues to the guest’s identity. As the excitement mounts, Vulcan gets help piecing the mystery together from a spirited cast of four-legged and feathered friends. Historic events are woven into a fun, fictional narrative that pictures life on Washington’s estate through the eyes of farm animals and pets that actually lived there more than two centuries ago.
