Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this amusingly light-hearted alternative to Captain Underpants, Geronimo Stilton, editor of The Rodent's Gazette is dismayed when his grandfather arrives at the paper to economize things. Cheese jokes and puns abound as Geronimo goes to Egypt to cover a story in a plane held together with band aids with seat belts made from string. Still, Geronimo has a rollicking good adventure as the reader is treated to some painless history lessons about ancient Egypt. Happily, our hero returns safely home to lure grandpa away from the paper and restore order. Today's graphically-attuned second and third grade readers will appreciate the lively, colorful cartoon-like illustrations and variable type faces. The book's generous sized print with plenty of white space is just right for emerging readers who will look forward to Geronimo's next adventures. 2004, Scholastic, and Ages 6 to 9.

Gr 2-4-Geronimo Stilton earns his bread and cheese as editor of The Rodent's Gazette, but his true joy is writing adventure yarns. As a globe-trotting newsmouse, he finds plenty of material for his tales-although his exploits never quite work out the way he anticipates. In Curse, Geronimo heads to Egypt to interview eccentric archaeologist Professor Spitfur. The professor claims that the pyramid of Cheops contains the ancient Egyptians' secret method for creating unlimited energy, but legend says the pharaoh's curse awaits anyone who enters the tomb. In the second title, a pirate map sends Geronimo and his intrepid companions from the Gazette on a voyage to find the Emerald Eye. Shipwrecked on the treasure island, the comrades follow the dangerous trail through traps and quicksand to locate the booty. Geronimo's adventures resemble old Saturday morning cartoons with broad humor, stock characters, frenetic action, and comic-book-style illustrations. Even the text is incorporated into the comic motif. Words and phrases are highlighted with a wild miscellany of type fonts, graphics, and colors-often several on a single page. They curve across the pages, slant up or down or twist into odd shapes. While this device is amusing at first, it quickly becomes overwhelming. Transitional readers may be attracted by the flashy design, but for a better-written and funnier adventures series, steer them to Jon Scieszka's "Time Warp Trio" (Viking) instead.-Elaine E.

I thought this was a GREAT book! This my favorite Geronimo Stilton book so far! My favorite character (besides Geronimo Stilton) was Professor Spitfur. Geronimo¿s grandfather sends him to Egypt to do an interview. The most exciting part of the book is that Geronimo gets to go to Egypt. The description of the airplane ride is very funny. The scariest part is when the Professor gets knocked out and Geronimo is left in the dark! I 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!

The print in ebook version was too small to read. Changing settings would not work. Even with help from store and customer service. Too bad because my son would have liked the story.
