Mystery in the Moonlight is written as a mystery to teach the reader about a condition called XP, Xeroderma Pigmentosum. The author leads the main characters, as well as readers, to wonder if their new neighbors could be vampires or werewolves, since no one sees them in the daylight. This book is a good starting point for learning about XP, the depleting ozone layer, and sun safety.
