Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Rife
With Halloween approaching, Geronimo Stilton is gearing up for a big party with his nephew. Suddenly, something strange begins happening in New Mouse City. Someone begins stealing all the pumpkins, Halloween decorations, and costumes from all the shops in town. This villain, who later reveals himself to be a clown mouse named Chuckles, then creates an amusement park in the middle of town to lure all the citizens away from their homes. Once they are there, the gates are locked and Chuckles' minions begin their plot to rob all the locals of their belongings. Only two mice are able to escape and save the city from this villainy: Geronimo Stilton and his detective friend Hercule Poirat. In quick time, they track down Chuckles, break into his giant headquarters and free all the trapped mice, just in time to truly celebrate Halloween. The story is very easy to get through and fun to read. As an eye-catching technique, various words in the text are put into fonts that personify the content. Although sometimes overused, this works to pop words that invoke one of the senses, such as having the words "gigantic," "pop," and "explosion" in huge explosive font. The end of the book also includes everything you would need to know to throw your own Halloween party, such as decor, drinks, and snacks. Reviewer: Melissa Rife
