The Lovereading4Kids comment
Want to get your kids reading, well here’s a spellbinding adventure that we think kids of 8 upwards will really pick up on for it’s something more than a book as it integrates books, games, a website, cards and prizes into the mix. Finding and solving clues results in prizes and if you solve all 39 clues there’s a chance to compete for the grand prize. There will be 10 books in all with one clue to solve in each book and the cards, some of which come with the books and some can be bought separately help reveal the clues. The first Card Pack contains 16 game cards and a clue finder guide for the first three books in the series. The last 39 Clues book will be published in 2010. We’ll have them all on Lovereading4kids as we believe it will get even the most reluctant readers reading, for the interactivity of the series is brilliant. Take a peak at our extract and if you like what you see buy it, then register at www.the39clues.com so you can start playing the game and winning prizes. The second book is due out in december 08 – One False Note – and the third in March 09 – The Sword Thief.
The 39 Clues 1: The Maze Of Bones by Rick Riordan
Behold the adventures of the prodigious Cahills, the most eminent family in the world. Their ancestors stretch from coast to coast from the illustrious Benjamin Franklin to the young Amy and Dan Cahill. With the recent demise of dear Aunt Beatrice a final will and testament proclaims the great Cahill prize, the source of the family power. Amy and Dan are pitted against their most ruthless relations in search of 39 clues hidden around the world. Mysteries need to be unravelled and this is where the reader steps from the sidelines.
The 39 Clues, launching globally in September, is a fully integrated multi-media adventure that spans across 10 supercharged books, 355 collectible cards, and a dynamic online game where kids can uncover information, play skill based games and collect cards to compete for prizes. The story revolves around the Cahills - the most powerful family the world has ever known - the source of whose power is a mystery that can only be unraveled by assembling 39 clues hidden around the world throughout history. Combining reading with online gaming and collecting, this breakthrough concept is uniquely positioned to reach millions of young people who are readers, gamers, collectors, or all three, and encourage them to participate in the hunt for
the 39 clues.
“The 39 Clues takes creative leaps to expand the story experience from the pages of the books to multiple stages of discovery and imagination,” said Steven Spielberg. “Together with Scholastic, we have the opportunity to develop this property that says ‘film,’ ‘family,’ ‘fun,’ and ‘franchise.’”
