  20. snorckato

    I think j.K. Rowling should write the last 39 clues book. That would be awsome! That would be the best way to end the series.

  21. kuackz

    why are all of your books so cool and about kids going on trips i like your books so much i keep reading the maze of bones so many times

  22. divagurlious

  27. Bookworm1199

    I would suggest these books to anyone and everyone. They are great for people who like adventure. Also, within each book, you learn something new. You can go online and open up your own account.

  28. empoleon333

  35. Ben

  36. 4mary

    Hey, I think you are a GREAT writer and I don’t understand why some people don’t like your book. I mean, it grabs people’s attention. Today, I was in my room reading one of your books, and my family was being too loud, and I wanted to close my door but I didn’t because the book was amazing. I was reaing book 5. Writers like you are AMAZING! Thanks, bye!

  37. Casey

    I would like to read Gordan Korman’s books. My friend read them and he loved them. so I think I will read them soon. I am pretty sure they will be good. If you read them give me a message of how you thought of the now eight books.

  38. jack h

    me and my friend our reading it me and him r getting book 8 at hool we orderd it on book order

  39. krystal

    I started reading the books just a couple of months ago. I bought book one, and I bought the cards book for 1, 2, and 3. After I finished book 1 I sent out to buy book 2, only to find that it has been sold out. I’ve searched everywhere, but have not found the book any where.

  40. Trey Q, Ekat Agent

    Can you give us any info on 39 Clues books 8 through 10 that we don’t already know now?

  41. RR

    It was kind of obvious they were Madrigals. If you look at Grace’s middle name (Madeline (the founder of the Madrigals)) it gets obvious. By the way, are Amy and Dan the leaders of the Madrigals now that Grace is dead or William McIntyre?
    P.S. Madrigals RULE!!!

  42. TOM

    i find the cover of book 2 really strange because of the swords and bones.i love the 39 clues.

  43. 2dogs09

    Hey! This is 2dogs09 here and I would make a great STACKS buddy if you like country music, horses and horseback riding, and Bridigit Mendler!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. emily

    hay i love the deltora quest books and i think that they should put them into movies but since the first series is to long you should put 4 books in 1 movie and so on

  45. bella

    Lucian Viper

  47. Chocolate Goosebumps

  52. GAMESTERA

    ekats rule… we get u with our awesome brain power… lucians will probably end up poisoning themselves before they get the first 3 clues… tomas couldnt beet a rock at a contest of wits… janus cant even watch there own back cause theyre too busy looking at the mirror. ekats SHALL be the first to find the 39 clues!
