Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Geronimo Stilton books:
"Lightning pace and full-color design will hook kids in a flash." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Children's Literature - Marie Morganelli
Geronimo Stilton is a space mouse and the pilot of a spaceship called the Mouse Star 1. Together with his sister, cousin, grandfather, and other members of his space crew, Geronimo sets out on a space adventure to find a source of power for his ship. Just when Geronimo thinks the mission is accomplished, his sister realizes they have been tricked. Working together, this family of spacemice defeats their enemy, locates the necessary power source, and happily sets off for their next adventure. Using varying font size for emphasis, different color text, numerous sidebars, and many illustrations, the book is not a graphic novel but imparts many effects to make the story visually dynamic. This would be a fun book to read aloud to encourage both reading comprehension and silliness. Illustrations are used well, incorporating action, wordplay, and humor, leading to what could be a great introduction to chapter books and a good bridge between picture books and graphic novels. The first book in the “Geronimo Stilton Spacemice” series. Reviewer: Marie Morganelli, Ph.D.; Ages 7 to 10.

Explore space with Geronimo Stiltonix, futuristic analog of the familiar Geronimo Stilton. Geronimo Stiltonix, captain of the prestigious MouseStar 1, "would rather be writing novels than steering a spaceship." His crew's made up of, in part, other familiar Stilton characters with -ix added to their last names, the personal assistant robot Assistatrix and all-purpose robot Robotix. He may be captain, but Geronimo is the last to find out that his spaceship is in danger of exploding. To stabilize the engine, they must obtain the rare element tetrastellium. Luckily, a nearby planet, Rattos, might have some. Upon arriving, they are hailed by friendly pink mousoids who offer them tetrastellium. But their tetrastellium is pink instead of the customary blue. Even stranger, despite the great value and rarity of tetrastellium, the pink mousoids refuse any payment but friendship. Suspicious, Geronimo and a team go to Rattos' surface on reconnaissance. Sure enough, strange pink happenings onboard the ship presage the takeover of the control room by an evil, sentient mass of pink goo. It takes clever thinking by the away team to defeat the goo and save the ship. The format includes the customary Stilton staples: wild types and colors, playful illustrations and sidebars that elaborate on aspects of the fictional world. With a story like an old-fashioned episode of Star Trek, this is a wonderful science-fiction introduction for young readers. (the spacemice creed) (Graphic science fiction. 6-10)

Bought book for my eight year old grandson so we could read together. Always looking for books that have high interest appeal. He LOVED this book. Good book for reluctant readers, boys that like space fantasies, and has some word play humor that appeals to both old and young alike, so nice to share the giggles. Some of the vocabulary is for a stronger , older reader so does need to be shared reading, but book such fun reading that it did not discourage even though he needed occasional help.Great for motivating reading and he asked for more of the books .
