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.

Format: Paperback
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!

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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!!

This review consists of 2 parts: 1. My daughter's review (she's 9) and 2. My review (I'm the Mom). These are excerpts. For the full reviews, please visit our website.

DAUGHTER SAYS:

What I liked and disliked about it:

I liked this book because it's funny and the story is good. I like stories that have mysteries and adventures like this one does. It was really cool that there was a treasure map. If I found a treasure map, I would try to find it - especially if it's a big jewel like a ruby or diamond and I would ask all of my friends, my little brother, my Mom, and my Dad to help me find it.

Trap and Thea are funny when they call Geronimo by everything but his name, like "Geronimiss", "Geronimouse", "Gerrymug", and "Geronimeister". It really seems to bother him.

I liked the way the book ended because the treasure they discovered was a big surprise.

I didn't like that there is writing and pictures over some of the words because I didn't know which ones were part of the story and where they were in the sentence. It made it harder to read.

My bottom line:

I loved this book and would recommend it to girls my age and younger and boys who are younger than me.

MOM SAYS:

What I liked and disliked about it:

For years, I saw the Geronimo Stilton books in the Scholastic book order forms at our school and I was always curious about them. My daughter was never interested in them; but nonetheless, my curiosity got the best of me when I recently found myself perusing the shelves at a local bookstore. I picked up the Lost Treasure of the Emerald Eye for my daughter on a whim, curious about what made this book series so popular. Curiosity...satisfied.
