    I really liked the premise of this series opener and the variety of famous settings adds lots of fun possibilities to the adventure. The inserted sections of various secret plans was a nice touch too. I read this in galley so have not seen all the illustrations yet but the ones incl...

    It was an interesting premise, but I didn't like the way it was written. It felt like a really bad spinoff of the 39 Clues series (in the sense of rich relative leaving kids with a legacy to travel the world), but it wasn't written anywhere near as well. It felt way more juvenile and u...

    Oh. My. Lanta! This book was so much fun! I listened to this with my youngest two children (10 and 12) and my mom a car trip. We are constantly shouting out theories, things we noticed, laughter, and ?WHAT?!?? I?ve not had this much fun in ages. My daughter is dyslexic and my son...

    Man, I really wanted to like this based off of the description. The premise could really lend to something funny, unexpected, and adventurous. Instead, "Samantha Spinner" dabbles in the absurd, to the point that I feel it talks down to kids, and expects them to swallow anything for the...

    Rounded up from 4.5 stars. The story is engaging although a little too silly at times. Included are facts about many landmarks and treasures from around the world. What really gives added value to this series are the puzzles included and the website links like chincilladelivery.com. It...

    This book was written well and was pretty interesting how creative the author got with the types of ways they could travel. Magtrains, pneumatic tubes, ladders, secret mailboxes..... and more. The gist of the story is that this family?s uncle turned up missing one morning so Samantha...
