The series has changed a lot since it first began and I suspect the episodes may have been a part of this but I am not sure because I have not been able to play them yet. While the first book was suitable for younger audiences the next 2 were only ideal for more mature readers because they are more active and might be too disturbing for under 10's. However for the older children this book will be fantastic! No other series or book has been able to be similar to the 39 Clues and yet be different and still equally impressive.

This book is more... interesting than the first 2 books and it is more emotionally/ethically active such as how black people could be snatched off the street and sold as slaves. The story is set in 1850's during the periods of intense slavery in America. The characters are rather the same and the local historian is cool, Riq's ancestors are fun and I enjoyed all of the characters. The lantern on the cover was cool and had a strong relation to the book.

The series had lots of historical information in the books and this fact makes the book interesting and realistic while still keeping the books fun and action-packed. The map tells you about the next on-line mission, your goals, your enemies and your allies. It gave me lots of information about ancient Japan. I like how the price is kept at a bare minimum and isn't too costly. The price value is fantastic and will give more people opportunities to buy this fantastic book. Personally I love this book because it so similar to the 39 Clues series yet it is different and still fun to read. Nice reading everyone!

Wow, the Infinity Ring series has really gotten more interesting since it began, it has gone from being suitable for kids 10 and over to being about 12+ as the books became more active. the story started well, although I was unable to play the mission for book 2 and since the books and missions link together the beginning got a tiny bit confusing in places. I found the cover rather cool, the lantern looked rather 19th century-ish, but it took a bit of reading to find out how the lantern related to 19th century America.

The historic facts seemed pretty accurate, in fact I don't think of this book as a piece of fiction, but rather a fun little history lesson, or a book of info seeds that inspire research. I noticed that Riq got separated from Dak and Sera in this book, and Dak got separated in the last book, it makes me wonder if the same thing will happen to Sera in the next book, I CAN'T WAIT TO FIND OUT! I found the characters quite cool, the historian was a cool guy, and Riq found some of his ancestors in this book, they were great too, I don't think I have a least favorite person in this story.

The "Art of memory" puzzles were good, the first one was pretty easy to solve, but the other one was quite a tricky one. I have no problems with the story at all, it was a very cool book for me to curl up and read when I wanted a bit of a written adventure. I think that this book is a good value for money, it is certainly not a rip-off, I can tell you that! With all aspects considered, I would say that this is an adventure book not to be missed, I am sure that you will find it a real blast. Happy reading!

Product reviews for listing 2319: Not a Stick
Author: Antionette Portis

Product image for Not a StickA beautifully designed book, celebrating the power of the imagination to transform even the most ordinary of objects into something magical. A stick is just a stick! Unless it's not a stick. From fishing rod to dragon-taming sword, a small pig shows that a stick will go as far as the imagination allows. Antoinette Portis captures the thrill of when pretend feels so real that it actually becomes reality. Her simple, spare text and illustrations show that seeing truly depends on the ability to believe in the possibilities.
