The 39 Clues

For my oldest son's 8th birthday he wanted a detective theme. The party went well with a mystery to solve as our main activity. Along these lines my husband's mother, aunt and uncle sent a theme-appropriate gift, the first 4 audiobooks of The 39 Clues. With a bit of skepticism I have begun to learn more about these books and have to admit I am intrigued by the depth of thought put into each book and the surrounding activities. Anyone captivated by National Treasure movies can appreciate the type of "what's-coming-next suspense" these childrens' books depict. As we begin this next adventure of discovery my sons have been hooked into a world of espionage, mystery, and problem solving. More to come as the tale unfolds.
