Book Review: The 39 Clues: The Maze of Bones by Rick Riordan

The 39 Clues: The Maze of Bonesis the first book in a new exciting kids series. It sets the stage for an enormous scavenger-hunt-type mystery. Amy and Dan Cahill, along with other members of the vast Cahill family, are chosen to solve the 39 clues to become the most powerful of the Cahill family history. But, are they prepared to face the danger involved in this task?

The 39 Clues Book 1: The Maze Of Bones - Library Edition (39 Clues. Special Library Edition)

This series is a unique attempt at combining online information with a print book. I like the story and the mysterious/adventurous clues. I personally was not interested in doing all of the online stuff, so the accompanying cards were useless to me. I think kids will probably really get into the story and the online adventures. It was pretty fun, even if I had most of the surprises already figured out.

s-factor: none.

mrg-factor: none.

v-factor: ->

Mild scary stuff.

Overall rating: ***
