The fourth book in the 39 Clues series finds Dan and Amy Cahill exploring the tombs and treasures of Egypt! Check out Beyond the Grave by Jude Watson.


The Race for the 39 Clues

Before their grandmother, Grace Cahill, passed away, she hid a series of clues around the globe. In her will, she presented each member of the Cahill family with a choice: either take one million dollars or embark on a dangerous journey around the world in search of the 39 clues. Siblings Dan and Amy Cahill accept the challenge. But they're certainly not the only ones.


Overcoming the Past

So far they’ve followed the clues to Paris, Vienna, Venice, Japan and now Egypt. Amy and Dan are still struggling to overcome the deadly events that led them to their third clue: the misplaced trust in their cousin Ian, and the death of their Uncle Alistair. But they’re determined not to let their emotions get in their way.


A Tip from Grandma

Their grandmother’s careful planning gives Amy and Dan an advantage in the competition. Her best friend, Hilary, rescues Amy and Dan at a crucial moment and gives them a message and package from their grandmother. Inside, they find the very relic that they and the other teams have been searching for—the sakhet. Inside is a note that puts them on a trail to their next clue.


A Turn of Events

Amy and Dan use their memories of their grandmother to help them in their search. Along the way they learn that some [kwlink 780]friends can’t be trusted. And other friends who they’d written off as traitors will always be there when they’re needed most.


The Bottom Line

Beyond the Grave was certainly packed with action, put it was a little harder to follow than the previous three books in the series. There was a lot going on for such a short novel, too many clues and trails leading to final clue. But the characters were still quirky and delightfully manipulative. And some of the bad guys even showed their softer sides.


Beyond the Grave Rating: 4

In my point of view, every animal has rights. However these scientists need candidates to test out their new formulas or ideas. The effects of these formulas have such serious results; either good and bad. But the animals are being deprived of their rights. So it has a yes or no answer.

This is where you can make suggestions to improve kidzworld!!! Maybe don't even comment a suggestion, just type in something to support someone's ideas or something. We need to get this thread popular so eventually Jordan will see it!!! My first suggestion is to make it so you can go to settings and say notification alarm where everytime you get a comment, reply, or pm, it will make a sound. And you can choose from a whole bunch of noises. And they should add a page that is just youtube, and they can minimize it so you don't have to listen to the KW radio stations. You should also be able to minimize a conversation in PM so you can do other stuff while chatting.
