Read and Connect NOW!

Read NOW!

Today is when we will get our hands on the next installment of The 39 Clues series...Book 7: The Viper's Nest by Peter Lerangis. In order to best prepare yourself, read/re-read The 39 Clues Book 6: In Too Deep by Jude Watson. My son is re-reading it right now and can't wait to see what happens next to Dan and Amy in Book 7. Check out the GUWB summary AND the amazing connection ideas that truly bring life to the book! We'll have more connections for The Viper's Nest in the very near future.

GUWB's summary of Book 6:
Being careful not to be seen, “trust no one,” Dan and Amy take a clue from their parents and head to Australia. They are hoping to find unanswered questions from their long lost Uncle Shep about their parents’ last visit to “The Land Down Under.” Riding waves and escaping sharks is only the tip of the excitement that this 6th installment provides. The brother/sister team continues their quest to be the first to find all 39 clues and be “the most powerful people in the world.” Just a Heads Up: Mild Violence
