Holey Cheese! Imported from Italy, this snazzy series debut about a globetrotting mouse journalist spreads the cheesy puns nice and thick. On an average day, Geronimo Stilton edits The Rodent's Gazette, the newspaper of New Mouse City, capital of Mouse Island. But at the coaxing of his sister, Thea, and various relatives, Stilton sates his yen for adventure-and adventure writing-by embarking on various excursions and recording and illustrating his exploits in a diary that serves as source material for his books. Stilton, Thea, cousin Trap and nephew Benjamin board a ship in search of buried treasure on a secret deserted island. The trip is filled with peril and plenty of humor, though the treasure isn't what anyone expected. The book's lightning pace and its numerous chapters, as well as a full-color design that displays key words in color type and fun fonts, will hook kids in a flash. And those with a taste for Stilton's breezy style will surely want to devour future "whisker-licking-good stories," as the author calls them. The first four book in the Geronimo Stilton series will be released simultaneously, followed by one book per month thereafter. Ages 7-10. (Feb.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

As my 8 year old son would put it. Geronimo Stilton series is the FIRST book series that my son is willingly reading. The use of different fonts, colors and most of all humor in the book is what has kept him captivated. My 6 year old who is reading "Junie B Jones" chapter books has picked Geronimo as well.

Geronimo books are packed with references to popular culture, all re-worded to match the mouse vocabulary. And my son finds it particularly fun to "translate" mouse terms into something that he uses everyday. For example New Mouse City (New York City), Mousific Ocean (Pacific Ocean), San Mouscisco, etc.

I would also applaud to the translator who did wonderful job on the books translating them from Italian. We could hardly wait fo the next installment of the series.

So, in short, if you have a reluctant reader in your family, give Geronimo a try. It might just do the trick!

Geronimo Stilton, editor-in-chief of The Rodent's Gazette, and author of numerous books featuring exciting stories that are tastier than Swiss cheese, is pulled into a mystery, when his sister, Thea, discovers an old, mysterious map that shows a faraway island, where there is a secret treasure hidden. Being the adventurer that Thea is, she decides to go to the island and find the secret treasure. Of course, she demands that not only Geronimo accompany her on her trip, but also their cousin Trap. Now the three of them are on an adventure that they will never forget.
The Geronimo Stilton books are a cute new series for kids of all ages. Geronimo is a very intelligent, and fun character, as are his crazy family members (Thea, Trap, and Benjamin). While many children's books are very repetitive, the Geronimo Stilton series is something very fresh, and original. Filled with beautiful illustrations, a map of Mouse Island (Geronimo and the gang live in New Mouse City), and a listing of everyone who works at The Rodent's Gazette, Geronimo Stilton is sure to be a hit with all. Even adults.

Format: Paperback
I started reading the Geronimo Stilton books to my 7 year old son to try to get him more interested in reading. The books are well written. My sons enjoys books, but the more of them you read the more you realize that Geronimo Stilton is not a good infulence. We curently on book #9 and this it no more.

Geronimo Stilton is constantly complaining and wining. He is pushed around and manipulated by his sister, his cousin, and to a certain extent his sweet little nephew. The books are very formulaic. In almost every book I have read so for our hero, Geronimo Stilton, is dranged into an adventure kicking and screaming like a two year old throwing a fit. He eventually has fun in the end but on the way he excessly complains and wines the entire time. I have never read any childrens book before with phrase "I hate .." in it so many times. If you want a positive role infulence on your child through reading this isn't it.

If you are looking for a new book series, this should be it! There are 24 books out so far, and I have read them all. They are funny, clever, and have lots of funny mouse jokes. They are perfect for ages 7 and up, and come out bi-monthly. They are the best series of books ever. They originally came from Italy, if you're wondering. They are great, so read them ALL!!

It all started when Thea found an old map with an x for the spot where the treasure was. She dragged her brother Trap and her cousin Benjamin on to the trip. They took a boat there and a few days later a hurricane struck. Find out what happened to Benjamin, Thea, and Trap.

I really recommend this book because the details were great. It's a great adventure and this book is good for kids from second grade to fifth grade. You should read this book.

I thought this was a really good book. My favorite character (besides Geronimo Stilton) was Geronimo's cousin, Trap. He is very funny. Thea finds a treasure map and she gets Geronimo and Trap to go looking for the treasure. The scariest part of the book was when the Lucky Lady sank! The most exciting part is when Geronimo finally sees the Emerald Eye!
I also like the way the book is printed with the words being different colors and styles. It has lots of pictures and maps too. It makes it easier for me to read it. I am going to read all fifty titles as they are translated from Italian to English!

There's one fine line between well-played and over-played layouts. The full Geronimo Stilton series falls into the well-played category: the outcome is pleasant and not too loud and the fonts / colour used are really a statement on their own.

Another point to note is the translation involved. While this is not "literature" literature, the adaptation in cultural and linguistics aspect are well taken care of.

I don't know any Italian but have compared the Chinese and English versions of the same book (yes, my colleague at work has the entire Chinese series while I'm catching up by matching the English version). The funny bits are transformed elegantly.

Recommended to not only children, but anyone who's intersted in translating humour and layout.
