What would happen if you discovered that your family was one of the
most powerful in human history? What if you were told that the source
of the family’s power was hidden around the world, in the form of 39
Clues? What if you were given a choice, take a million dollars and walk
away, or get the first Clue? If you’re Amy and Dan Cahill, you take the
Clue, and begin a very dangerous race.
Get kids excited about reading with The 39 Clues series, the new 10-book, multi-author adventure series from Scholastic. The first installment – the 39 Clues, by Rick Riordan – is a super-hit with the urbanmoms.ca junior book review panel, who are eagerly consuming the books as fast as they can be written.
Somewhat like a serialized DaVinci code for the young adult reader, the 39 Clues books are each written by a different author, which adds a unique touch to each new book in the series. The readers get to follow the adventures of a young brother-sister team as they cross the world in search of clues to a mysterious inheritance, while trying to avoid being sabotaged (or worse) by the other competitors!
And because they understand today’s reader so well, Scholastic has created an online game element (with prizes!) at the39clues.com.
The 39 Clues: Read the book. Play the game. Solve the clues. Win the prizes.
