If you’re looking for a way to keep your schoolkid distracted over the Christmas break, Scholastic can help. Starting December 25th, Scholastic will be releasing a short eBook every day for a week. The eBooks are related of the exceptionally popular The 39 Clues series, with these 7 standalone titles bundled as The 39 Clues: Rapid Fire.

Each eBook will also contain part of a code, and when you combine the 7 parts they will unlock exclusive online content on the series’ site: The 39 Clues.
