Scholastic to Release a Series of Short eBooks Over the Holidays

If you’re looking for a way to keep your schoolkid distracted over the Christmas break, Scholastic can help. Starting December 25th, Scholastic will be releasing a short eBook every day for a week. The eBooks are related of the exceptionally popular The 39 Clues series, with these 7 standalone titles bundled as The 39 Clues: Rapid Fire.

Each eBook will also contain part of a code, and when you combine the 7 parts they will unlock exclusive online content on the series’ site: The 39 Clues. Readers will join the more than a million fans from all 50 states and 191 countries who have read the books and joined in the interactive online games.

With more than 11 million copies in print, this series is one of Scholastic’s most successful reading projects. “We are thrilled about the enormous popularity and global reach of The 39 Clues series,” said Ellie Berger, President, Scholastic Trade. “We love hearing feedback from readers around the world through online platforms like The 39 Clues Message Board and the message from fans is clear: they are excited and want more content and cannot wait for the next installment in The 39 Clues series. With the launch of ‘Rapid Fire’ during the holiday break, we’re offering kids and The 39 Clues fans everywhere the instant gift of reading every day.”
