Overview

Each Geronimo book is fast-paced, with lively full-color art and a unique format kids 7-10 will love. When Wild Willie showed up at my door and invited me to travel with him to Japan, I jumped at the chance. We were in search of an ancient, legendary samurai scroll that holds the secret to a long-lost fighting technique. The scroll had fallen into the wrong hands, and it was up to me and Wild Willie to track it down and save the day. But first, we would have to fight a group of talented ninjas. Holey cheese -- this would be one adventure I would never forget!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Lightning pace and full-color design will hook kids in a flash." -- Publishers Weekly
Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
Geronimo Stilton considers himself the most important mouse around. He is a bestselling author and runs The Rodent's Gazette on Mouse Island. He fancies himself to be a scaredy-mouse but has done quite a bit of traveling in spite of his fears. His life follows the same routine when he is at home. For example, on Saturdays he eats a large cheese pizza, one large mozzarella milk shake, and one large cheese danish. He always wears his pajamas and cat-fur slippers. It was not until he received a call from Wild Willie that his routine was interrupted. You see, Wild Willie is very adventurous. When Geronimo goes to meet Willie, he finds himself in a very odd predicament. Geronimo has been bamboozled. He was put on a stage as the assistant to Willie, but not just any assistant. Geronimo has suddenly become Wild Willie's karate assistant. Photographers snap and flash their cameras and spectators clap and squeak as Geronimo is kicked, smacked and chopped by Willie. But that is not all: Wild Willie announces to the crowd, including Geronimo's family, that Geronimo will travel with him to Japan where Karate was born. Geronimo goes along with this unwelcome adventure just to save himself any further embarrassment in front of his family, with the hope he will survive the adventure. The "Geronimo Stilton" series of stories is an exciting one. Boys and girls alike will love the quirky illustrations found throughout the book and the humor they display. Bold and varied fonts make reading a lot of fun. Middle graders will learn about Tokyo, Japanese cuisine, and so many other fun facts about the culture of Japan. The back of the book shows layouts of the The Rodent's Gazette, New Mouse City, and Mouse Island. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard
