Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

For readers who have worked their way through the multitude of books in the Geronimo Stilton franchise, here is something only slightly different. Meet Geronimo Stiltonoot, Stone Age Cavemouse and ancient ancestor of Geronimo Stilton. Interestingly enough, Mr. Stiltonoot’s life is quite similar to that of his popular descendant’s, except with mock-prehistoric trappings of the Flintstones variety. Stiltonoot’s adventures are told in the tried-and-true format, i.e., ample colorful illustrations, diagrams, maps, words in the text frequently enlarged in a dizzying variety of fonts, and side blocks with bits of information and nonsense. Here Stiltonoot must overcome many perils to rescue the famous Stone of Fire stolen from the mouseum by the evil Tiger Khan. Literary references include Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes; however, the plot is more in the nature of Indiana Jones. Fans of the other Geronimo Stilton books will definitely embrace the over-the-top silliness in this new spin-off. Grades K-4. --Randall Enos

I started getting Stilton books for my eight-year-old daughter and she loves all the books we have got so far. The stories are well written and the language used in this books is wonderful, nothing like other popular kids books out there that are not that appropriate for young students.

The Geronimo Stilton series is good fun, but after more than 50 volumes it seems to have run out of steam a bit. This book is the first in a spin-off series, and it breathes new life into the continuing adventures of Geronimo.

In this series we are in the Stone Age following Geronimo's ancient ancestors. The set up is the same. The hero/narrator is Geronimo Stiltonoot. Most of the old characters are back in slightly changed forms. Geronimo now publishes his newspaper one chiseled stone tablet at a time. Mouse Island is now Old Mouse City.

But, the humor and silliness is the same. For novelty, in this series there are Flintstone-like bits, (Geronimo drives an "autosaurus"; the enemies are sabre-tooth tigers, and so on.) We still have colorful and varied print fonts, antic illustrations, detailed maps of the action, and lots of puns and jokes. As usual, some of the jokes are likely to be over the heads of readers, but that's O.K. because that just means there are different jokes and different rewards for different levels of readers.

So, if you have drifted away from Stilton, this might be a draw to come back. If you're new to Stilton, this is a fine place to begin. Either way, the book is certainly worth your consideration.

Please note that I received a free advance ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to the author or the publisher of this book.

A Kid's Review on September 2, 2013
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed reading Geronimo Stilton Cavemice The Stone of Fire because it kept me interesting in reading. This book was about old mouse city. The other Geronimo Stilton books I have read have been about new mouse city. This book is the first one in a series. I am looking forward to reading the others because this book was very interesting and exciting.
I thought the most exciting part of the book was learning about old mouse city. I recommend this book to kids ages 7-10 because it is an exciting chapter book that makes reading fun. I recommend the Geronimo Stilton books to kids because they also have cool pictures in the books that also help with telling the story.

Geronimo Stiltonoot is Geronimo Stilton's cavemouse ancestor. He also runs a newspaper company. But everything is written on stone tablets. His life is a little bit more dangerous because it includes meteorites, dinosaurs, and falling stone mail. But Geronimo puts his life in even more danger when one day he decides to help the town's museum get its stolen Stone of Fire back. His cavemouse friend, Hercule Poirat, joins him on his journey to rescue the stone from some ancient fighting felines. The chapters are designed to hold even the shortest attention. The bright and colorful pictures are funny and fit perfectly with the story. Each paragraph is filled with colorful words that are drawn to indicate their meaning. Boys especially, will enjoy the gross descriptions of fur balls, brown sludge goo, and poop. Most of the characters from the original Geronimo Stilton books are brought back in the caveman book, with slightly different names. Fans of Geronimo will love the spinoff that tells all about where Geronimo came from, while still filled with danger and intrigue.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
