book 8

Aug 30, 2018

I got this book from the Summer Reading Club as an award and as soon as I got a chance I read it nonstop and I noticed the code that they were using instantly! I think though they should have added some more mentionings of the great food in China like balo bao ( pineapple bun ) or dan tat ( egg tart ), oh, and caisu bao ( BBQ Pork bun )!!!!
P.S. I'm hungry now does anyone know were the BBQ Pork bun went oh I forgot I ate it at lunch

My sister got this from a Summer Reading Club award! And it is great! Take note all the history in this series! My Mom, Dad, and sister were talking about it at dinner last night!

39 Clues is a 4-part series. While reading, take note of certain words circled. Also, there is an online game you can play while reading these books.
The antagonists are siblings placed in survival mode and are of the young ages of 11 and 14 respectfully.
A fun collection of stories. However, I suggest a PG rating for the fact there is violence and killing (non-gore) behaviour described.
