My 9 year-old daughter and I have made the series a part of our home school enjoyment. We are reading the series anxiously together with baited breath. She is such a critical thinker that she solves many clues without a bit of help. The story lines are exceedingly well written. My only nitpick is the dialog of the children seems like adults trying to use the vernacular of children, poorly. I would also like to kill Amy and Dan for constantly speaking their thoughts aloud concerning the clues when prying ears and eyes are all about them. Other than that, I love every little bit of it. It goes well with my morning coffee or by evening light before bedtime. I can't put it down. Excellent.

who doesn't want all the dirt, secrets, and weapons one branch member does to another in the name of greed and power? Sound familiar to our day and age? greed, power, ruthlessness, terror, hatred, who will prevail?? Great series!! the mini vacations around the world were a very clever concept to teach and learn, not just read of good versus evil. Next year the Vespars vs the Cahills, what a challenge to keep the suspense going into another series. cant wait to see if the NY Bestseller can continue to hold the interest and the flair it had in the first ten books.

THE BLACK BOOK OF BURIED SECRETS takes all the information gathered by the five branches of the family and stores them together in one book. Each branch, including the Madrigals, spill their secrets and some identities of their agents - past and present. While it doesn't advance the story of the Cahill family, readers will enjoy uncovering more information about THE 39 CLUES series and its characters. This is a great finale to the first series where all the material comes together. I loved how the authors are the real agents in this book - a great twist. I also loved reading about the hot spots of the various branches of the family, their history, the tricks and tools, and famous members. The layout makes for a fast read and includes great pictures.

This is a great field guide to go along with the series. It has full-color photos inside and contains LOTS of info. But if you haven't read the entire 39 Clues series...don't get it. It gives a LOT about the ending away.

The Black Book of Buried Secrets by Rick Riordan, was an information guide to the 39 Clues Series. It did give some useful information, but much of it was repeared. I am so glad that I rented this from a library, because I would have never wasted my money on this. It was rather short, and had many pictures. But, if you check it out from a library, it is a good read and sets you up nicely for the next book, Vespers Rising. However, if you don't have time to read this before the next one, you won't lose any valuable information.
