Following the wide release of its now international bestselling series The 39 Clues, Scholastic is set to launch Infinity Ring, a time travel/alternate history series that’s laced with digital elements.
Aimed at kids ages eight to 12, the seven-book series will launch in September 2012 in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada and will incorporate interactive maps as well as an online game experience.
The books will be written by different authors, with books one and seven penned by bestselling author James Dashner (The Maze Runner), who was instrumental in the series’ overall story arc.
The online game element will be housed on www.infinityring.com and will be available for smartphones, iOS and Android tablets. The game allows kids to interact with other characters and explore key events in history alongside Christopher Columbus, Abraham Lincoln and other figures featured in the books.
