Alien Escape

I was sent this book by the publisher

alien-escape

By: Geronimo Stilton

Book 1 of the Spacemice series

Geronimo Stiltonix is the captain of Mousestar 1, a fabulous spaceship. He is rudely awakened from his dreams to discover said spaceship is about to explode. This is not good news especially when it turns out that the batteries need replacing. Geronimo is thrilled when a group of strange aliens offer to help by giving them access to a rare element. The aliens might not be as friendly as they seem though.

Using the same format that makes the various other Stilton series so popular. The story is simple, the text visually interesting and the illustrations fun and colourful. If you’ve taken your kids through the other books then this could be a fun addition to your reading time. If you have kids that are just starting their reading journey and they are interested in space and science fiction, then this could be a good choice for you. Silly fun.

The Hunt For the Golden Book

I received my copy from the publisher.

By: Geronimo Stilton

Part of the Geronimo Stilton Series

the-hunt-for-the-golden-book

It’s ten years since Geronimo published his first book and Grandfather William wants him to throw a high party to celebrate, and he wants a special book written for just this occasion. Geronimo isn’t so sure about any of this but tries to do what Grandfather William wants. It all goes horribly wrong though when his laptop is stolen and on it is the only copy of his very special book. Geronimo has to go to extraordinary lengths to get his computer and his manuscript back.

A fun special hardbound edition. The adventure is fast paced and full of all the silliness that is expected from a Geronimo Stilton book, and many familiar characters whom you love or hate. The format works though so why change it. It remains a good serious for those young ones just starting out on their chapter book reading journey. Ten years is a worthy cause to celebrate. This version also comes with a bonus mini Geronimo adventure.

Geronimo Stilton

So the books have been around for ages and there are so many of them, I have a lot but not all. I think they are great for young kids, they have action, simple to understand language and plenty of colour. There is also a tv series. It is quite fun to see these favourite characters come to life this way. If you or your kids are a fan of the books then track these down (they are actually on tv in Australia at  the moment), likewise if you or your kids are a fan of the show then definitely give the books a try.

Cavemice Series bk 2

The day isn’t going well, not when everyone in Old Mouse City has a terrible stomachache. The local shaman doesn’t seem to be able to help much and the Club Brothers are making a lot of money of this epidemic. Geronimo is chosen to find the cure because he is one of the few mice who isn’t suffering. Geronimo isn’t too enthusiastic about this as it requires going on a dangerous journey to a mysterious cave. Geronimo will do a lot for a pretty mouse though and the Shaman has a very pretty daughter, not that Geronimo would ever say anything because he is simply too shy.

A fun prehistoric adventure wrapped in a mystery. Geronimo would have preferred to go on this one alone, if he really has to go that is, but unfortunately his cousin Trap joins him, which means things get a little more interesting. This spin off series is fun, with perhaps less fact moments than the other ones but when dealing with dinosaurs and a lifestyle very different to our own, it is good to encourage children to imagine. The story, as always is entertaining and the bright coloured illustrations and contoured words make the series continually appealing for those only just beginning their booky journey.

Great for beginning readers.

The Lake Monster

9780545560191By: Geronimo Stilton

Mini Mysteries bk 2

A story breaks on the TV news and Geronimo’s grandfather tells him to get out and cover it. Geronimo isn’t too sure about trying to track down a lake monster but it’s part of his job so off he goes. As usual going with his family make things more complicated for Geronimo but that doesn’t make him any less determined to find out what is really going on with this Lake Monster. It turns out there is something of a mystery to be sorted out.

This is the second of the mini mystery books and it is a lot of fun.  A bit of a play on the Loch Ness monster makes for a good, action filled read. It is what you expect from these books and the smaller format is great for more reluctant readers.

I think these books are always fun.

The Super Scam

9780545560160

By: Geronimo Stilton

Mini Mysteries, book 1

A new Superstore has opened in New Mouse City. This is a very big deal and everyone is eager to go, especially Geronimo and his nephew Benjamin. It has a great gimmick, headphones for every shopper. Once inside though something happens that Geronimo can’t explain, he has to dance and buy everything he can get his paws on. He isn’t the only one. Geronimo has a feeling something isn’t right but will he be able to figure out in time just what is going on!

A new series with the ever popular Geronimo Stilton. The story itself is fun and moves at a fast pace. The characters and style of story will be familiar to Geronimo fans. This series is a smaller format than the other books, both in size and page numbers.  For those readers who just want something short to practice with, or for those who just struggle to read for any length of time this series is definitely worth looking at.

The Stone of Fire

I received my copy from the publisher.

9780545447744

By: Geronimo Stilton

Cavemice series bk 1

Geronimo Stiltonoot is an ancient ancestor of Geronimo Stilton.

It appears that the most precious artefact, The Stone of Fire, has been stolen from the mouseum. Geronimo and his friend Hercule are on the trail of the stolen item. They track it down to Tiger Khan, the most ferocious leader of a band of nasty felines. It is up to them to retrieve the Stone and return it to it’s rightful place.

A new series that gives avid readers additional Geronimo books. The stone age take is a new angle and gives plenty of opportunity for speculation on history. There is still plenty of silliness and action in a series that sticks to the original format, plenty of colour and pictures.

Any series that can keep going this long and have so many spin off series’ is well worth a look.
