At the beach by Mouseford Academy, one of the Thea Sisters discovers a mysterious boy with blue skin washed up on the shore. He speaks an unfamiliar language, so the Thea Sisters call Thea Stilton to help figure out how to communicate with him.
She sets the mouselings on an exciting journey across the world to hunt for clues about the boy's origins. Could he be prince of the underwater world of Atlantis? It's up to the Thea Sisters to get him home!
When this book came out my daughter was very excited as she had been collecting the Geronimo Stilton hard cover series The Kingdom of Fantasy so was really excited that there was now a Thea Stilton hard cover book. She likes the hard cover books as they are a longer read than the thinner paper back versions.
This was another great Thea Stilton read and was in true Geronimo Stilton fashion with the amazing illustrations and interesting fonts that make it easy and fun to read for children.
In the book the Thea Sisters find a blue guy on the beach and they must solve the mystery of where he came from to send him back to Atlantis under the sea. It is a great story if you are interested in ancient mythology as it has a lot of information about the lost land of Atlantis and the history behind that in the book.
To solve the mystery of how to get back to Atlantis the Thea Sisters must travel the globe to such places as Africa, Asia, and South America and the book provided information on these places to so children get a bit of a general knowledge lesson while reading the book. My daughter loved this aspect as she wants to travel the world when she is old enough.
