Item description for Alex & Penny in the Wild West by Giada Francia...
In this sequel to Alex & Penny Ballooning over Italy and Alex & Penny in Egypt, the brother and sister team of young secret agents explore America's Wild West. Their secret mission takes them to the area's most fascinating historical landmarks and through some of the world's most stunning scenery as they follow in the footsteps of the pioneers along the Oregon Trail. The name of each destination is hidden in a quiz or puzzle that Alex and Penny–and readers–have to solve before they can continue to the next clue. Among the places the twins visit are Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon, Arches National Park, Mesa Verde, where they learn about Native American history, and Monument Valley. They pan for gold in the Colorado River, participate in a wild mustang roundup, and learn Native American traditions along the way. An entertaining story combined with spectacular photographs and manga-like illustrations introducing readers to the legendary history of America's frontier. Complementing the aerial photography for which White Star is world renowned, mazes and word games reinforce the historical and cultural facts presented in the story (the solutions to the games appear at the back of the book). Teachers, parents, and most of all, kids themselves, will appreciate this fun and fact-filled exploration of the history of the Wild West.
