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 - Tima Murrell
Geronimo Stiltonoot is Geronimo Stilton's cavemouse ancestor. Stiltonoot runs a newspaper company. Everything is written on stone tablets. His life is a little bit more dangerous than modern times because it includes meteorites, dinosaurs, and falling stone mail. But Geronimo Stiltonoot 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. Book one in the "Geronimo Stilton Cavemice" series. Reviewer: Tima Murrell
Kirkus Reviews
Warp back in time for a prehistoric spinoff adventure with Geronimo Stilton's ancestor, Geronimo Stiltonoot, in Old Mouse City. Readers will find Geronimo Stiltonoot a familiar character, outfitted differently from descendant Stilton yet still running a newspaper and having wild adventures. In this introduction to prehistoric mouse life, someone has stolen the most powerful and important artifact housed by the Old Mouse City Mouseum: the Stone of Fire. It's up to Stiltonoot and his fellow sleuth and friend, Hercule Poirat, to uncover not only the theft, but a dangerous plot that jeopardizes all of Old Mouse City. As stand-ins for the rest of the Stilton cast, Stiltonoot has in common with Stilton a cousin named Trap, a sister named Thea and a nephew named Benjamin. The slapstick comedy and design, busy with type changes and color, will be familiar for Stilton readers. The world is fictionalized for comedic effect, featuring funny uses for dinosaurs and cheeky references to how far back in time they are, with only the occasional sidebar that presents facts. The story takes a bit long to get started, spending a lot of time reiterating the worldbuilding information laid out before the first chapter. But once it does start, it is an adventure Stilton readers will enjoy. Geronimo Stiltonoot has the right combination of familiarity and newness to satisfy Stilton fans. (Fiction. 6-10)
