Congratulations to Patrick Carman on book five of The 39 Clues: The Black Circle, which hits bookstores today. The full cover has been a closely guarded secret for months, but it can now be revealed. Do you recognize the symbol above? You will once you read the book. For more information, check Scholastic's press release, which also shows the hot-off-the-presses Japanese cover for book one: The Maze of Bones.

Shelby and Natalie, grade 9 from Minnesota, recently decided to play capture-the-flag Percy Jackson style. They made flags for each of the cabins, some of which you can see above. They report that the game was held in rainy weather, so the flags didn't survive the game too well -- that happens a lot at Camp Half-Blood too. Hey, at least the players survived, and they took pictures of the flags beforehand. Thanks for sharing your work, girls!

Can't wait for Tuesday, when 39 Clues #5, THE BLACK CIRCLE, finally arrives. The full cover will not be revealed until release day, when you will learn the destination of Dan and Amy's new adventure. I've got to say, a sneak peek copy came to me last week, and you're in for a wild ride. Patrick Carman really delivers.
