The 39 Clues

Hi everybody!  Today's post is about one of my favorite book series, "The 39 Clues".
 The series is about two orphans from Boston, named Amy and Dan Cahill.  Their ancestors were some of the worlds most famous people, including Benjamin Franklin, Mozart, Elvis, and George Washington.  The series is a big hunt for 39 clues, which if found, can make you become the most powerful person in human history.   
There are 11 books in the series, as far as I know.  Book 11, "Vespers Rising", comes out on April 5th, 2011.   The books take place around the world, from as far south as Australia to as far north as England, and everywhere in between.

We Dare You!

Hi everybody!  Today's post is about a very cool science experiment book called "We Dare You!".
Alright, first I would like to share with you a experiment that Gabe, my mom, and I did the other day.
The goal of the experiment was to throw an egg across a room without breaking it.  The photo above is how you need to start.  You need a bed sheet, an egg, and two books set at the corners.  You need to throw the egg towards the top of the sheet.  The three photos below are the results.

Did not come out to good, did it?

The book also has experiments like get a candle to relight itself, and move cardboard by staring at it.

If you would like to purchase "We Dare You!", you can purchase it here at

See you soon!  Sam.

How To Train Your Dragon

Hi there, today's post is about the new movie "How To Train Your Dragon".

The movie is about a viking boy named Hiccup and he makes friends with the dragons of his home including the most feared dragon, Night Fury, and he saved the vikings with the help of Night Fury. If you want to learn more watch the movie.
I love the Wii game "How To Train Your Dragon". You have the choice of two people and you can take care of that person's dragon, train it, design it, and compete with it.

This book is what the movie is based on. It has quite a few changes but I am sure you will like it.
