So, what is the story behind The 39 Clues series? The Cahills were once the most powerful family in the world, but the source of their power was lost when Grace Cahill, the last matriarch of the Cahills, changed her will minutes before she died. She left her descendants with an impossible decision: either receive a million dollars or a clue. The first Cahill who assembles all 39 clues hidden around the world will learn the secret of what makes the family so powerful. Readers follow fourteen-year-old Amy Cahill and her eleven-year-old brother, Dan, in a race to find the clues. The books also feature famous historical figures, such as Benjamin Franklin, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Amelia Earhart and William Shakespeare.
And if your kids have already read the eleven books in the original series, they’ll be thrilled to know that a new series is beginning: The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers. In August, they released Book 1: The Medusa Plot by #1 New York Times bestselling author Gordon Korman. The final book in the new six-book series will be written by bestselling author David Baldacci.
