THIS JUST IN! Amy and Dan Cahill were spotted on a train, hot on the trail of one of 39 Clues hidden around the world. BUT WAIT! Police report a break-in at an elite hotel, and the suspects ALSO sound suspiciously like Amy and Dan. UPDATE! Amy and Dan have been seen in a car . . . no, in a speedboat chase . . . and HOLD EVERYTHING! They’re being chased by an angry mob?!? When there’s a Clue on the line, anything can happen.

Kids’ Club Review by Kohaya: The scroll of Alexandria

The scroll of AlexandriaThe scroll of Alexandria, by Dan Metcalf

I really liked this book. It is about a girl called Lottie Lipton and her friends Reg and her Uncle Bert. The head of the British museum wants to sell all of the books in the library but Lottie and the friends are sure that the books have to stay in the library. Can they find evidence? Or will the books be gone forever? This book is fictional but it also teaches you about codes and history.

Ruby Redfort : look into my eyesRuby Redfort : look into my eyes, by Lauren Child

ruby redfort is really really REALLY smart. it was interesting to read (I have read it like six times) and you never get tired of it and you learn some cool stuff from it. I think this is the best book out of the others because you meet new people a lot, in the other books you know almost everyone and it’s just the tinyest bit more boring. I also like her because she has got this friend clancy crew who is nerdy but not smart and he doesn’t have glasses he’s kind of dumb actually.
