I have had a lot of friends say that the Geronimo Stilton books are amazing and that their kids love the books and stories. When I saw the book available for review I thought it would be a great way to see what all the fuss was about. The book arrived and I had a quick look and found that the pages were rather colourful and there were a lot of pictures.
I did let my kids have a look and they thought the colourful pages were great and that the story looked nice and they were eager to read it right there and then. I thought I would read it first so I can do a review and then let the kids have a decent read (Mr 6) and a look for the younger one.
I am not sure if it was just my eyes but I found the colourful fonts and effects could give me a headache until I got used to them so I couldn't read the whole book in one go but the story was interesting enough and easy to follow so it was not an essential thing to read in one sitting. The characters were great, well written and lovable and the pictures were simply amazing. The chapters were short but had a lot of action in them.
I will be trying to get as many of these books as possible as it is a great way to get young kids reading.
Random listing from 'Books'...
I, Geronimo Stilton, had returned to the Kingdom of Fantasy on the wings of the Phoenix of Destiny. Blossom, Queen of the Fairies, needed my help once again. But Blossom was behaving strangely. She sent me off on quest after magical quest, each one more bizarre and dangerous than the last.
It felt like my missions were building up to something truly terrible right under my snout. Could my friend and I put things right again? It's a story full of twists and turns, mazes and puzzles, and tones of fantastical creatures.
