Since I care about creating a bright future, I recommend boycotting this series until some objectionable things are taken out.

I have only read parts, and the two things that I object to are the knives coming out of the Russian spy's fingernails.

The other thing I object to is when in the second series of 39 Clues books, The Medusa Plot book, Dan briefly thinks of dowsing one or more living beings with gasoline and...

(I am sorry to spell this out for young readers who may see this.)

Human is from the root word humane -- good-hearted.

Read and discern the path of peace. Join me in standing up for humane action and humanity, and boycott this series - and tell others to as well. (It is possible to call for a second edition of these books that are touched up a bit at least!)

New authors (even the same with new pen names) and new publishers will come up with similar yet more noble series.

Then the readers will be leading the way for a better world!!

I do appreciate that the books are exiting and informative about the world.

Amy and Dan choose the chance and enter the Clue hunt, competing against more experienced Clue hunters: the Holts, Alistair Oh, the Starlings, the Kabras, Jonah Wizard, and Irina Spasky. Pursuing clues hidden in Grace's library and the Franklin Institute, Dan and Amy discover that Benjamin Franklin has hidden a clue in Paris. After convincing their au pair Nellie to chaperone their trip, Amy and Dan travel to Paris. While on the journey, Amy and Dan discover the conflict-ridden history of the Cahills that Grace hid from them to protect them. Racing through Paris—above ground and underground—the siblings solves codes and ciphers and find the clue in a vial. The Kabras steal the vial, but Dan solves the puzzle on the envelope they received at the beginning of their hunt and discovers the clue: "iron solute". Amy's Internet searches for Franklin leads them to the probable location of the second Clue: Vienna, Austria, the home of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Th mother of Amy (a 14 year old girl) and Dan (a boy) Caihill

Instead of 39 steps, billionaire Grace Cahill left her heirs 39 clues scattered around the world. At the end of this circuitous trail are the answers to a great family mystery, but Amy and Dan must decide whether any prize can be more important than the rescue of their missing parents. The beginning of an enthralling ten-book arc.
