I am reading all of the buzz about Scholastic's upcoming book series, website, trading cards, interactive site, and movie - The 39 Clues. With top writers like Rick Riordan and Gordon Korman lined up to write the series, and Steven Spielberg interested in the movie, The 39 Clues appears to be a huge undertaking. The series will focus on the fictional Cahill family and its links to important events in history throughout the ages. The story, set to unfold in books as well as online, debuts in September. Stay tuned!
