by Jude Watson

The 39 Clues is a great series written by multiple authors. Siblings, Amy and Dan, find themselves in turmoil as their parents and beloved grandmother, Grace, have been murdered and they are involved in a clue hunt to not only save themselves, but the entire world. This is the first book of the Unstoppable series, a sub-series in the 39 Clues world.

Amy and Dan have just finished another clue hunt to save members of their remarkable family and find out more about themselves, their parents and grandmother. Now, another entity has stolen something no one should possess and he is out to remove Amy and Dan from getting in his way as he attempts to dominate the world. These books are entertaining and educational as the characters travel all over the world, learn about famous people and events in history.

Great for the upper-elementary and middle school age kids. My husband even enjoys them!

The Wild, Wild West by Geronimo Stilton

Geronimo Stilton, fraidy-mouse extraordinaire, is traveling to the Wild West! Geronimo is the editor of the local newspaper. He is a calm mouse. He is a mouse who enjoys sitting at home, listening to classical music and drinking a nice cup of hot cheddar cheese tea.

Geronimo learns to rope and ride in the Wild West and he stands up to the town bullies. In the end … well you have to read the book to find that out.

I enjoyed reading this Geronimo Stilton book as it addressed Native American tribes to some extent, delivered great vocabulary regarding horses, and actually threw in a little twist at the end. Stilton fans will love reading this book.
