Scholastic has announced a new multi-platform adventure series for children ages 8 to 12, Infinity Ring.
Launching simultaneously in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand on Aug. 28, the series will feature seven books and seven corresponding online game episodes.
Infinity Ring follows the adventures of three kids who must travel back in time to set things right after history is broken. Each book will contain a free Hystorian's Guide, a collectible map and game guide that gives readers the information they need to play the Infinity Ring online game.
The game site, which will allow kids to play as main characters from the books, launches on Aug. 28 in conjunction with the release of the first book in the series, Book 1: A Mutiny in Time, written by James Dashner (The 39 Clues series).
