Here is information from the The 39 Clues website about the series:
- The 39 Clues™ is an interactive and multi-platform adventure series combining books, collectible cards, and an online game where readers become a part of the story. The groundbreaking series is the first of its kind in the publishing industry.
- The 39 Clues series centers around the Cahills—the most powerful family the world has ever known. But the source of the family’s power has been lost. Grace Cahill, the last matriarch of the Cahills, changed her will minutes before she died, leaving her descendants an impossible decision: receive a million dollars or a clue. The first Cahill to assemble all 39 clues hidden around the world will discover what makes the family so powerful—a reward beyond measure. It’s Cahill versus Cahill in a race to the finish, with readers hot on the heels of the main characters, fourteen-year-old Amy Cahill and her eleven-year-old brother, Dan.
