Overview

Who is Geronimo Stilton?
That's me! I run a newspaper, but my true passion is writing tales of adventure. Here in New Mouse City, the capital of Mouse Island, my books are all bestsellers! My stories are full of fun -- tastier than Swiss cheese and tangier than extra-sharp cheddar. They are whisker-licking-good stories, and that's a promise!

Lost Treasure of the Emerald Eye
It all started when my sister, Thea, discovered an old, mysterious map. It showed a secret treasure hidden on a faraway island. In no time at all, my sister dragged me and my cousin Trap into her treasure hunt. It was an adventure I'd never forget....

Interviews

A Q&A with Geronimo Stilton

How do you feel about your success around the world? Are you excited to meet American children?

GS: Holey cheese! I'm always pinching my tail because I can't believe all the success I've had. I'm just so amazed that children want to read about ME -- I'm just a mild-mannered editor after all. I just happen to always get my nose into the most unusual predicaments. And America! I've always read many wonderful stories that take place in America and I just couldn't wait to get here. I've had the most fabumouse time meeting all the children.

Why do you think kids love your stories?

GS: My stories are full of adventure and excitement, but they also are entertaining and make children laugh. I'm always getting into trouble and for some reason my readers seem to find that amusing. And my stories are about things that children deal with on a daily basis, such as friendship, sincerity, respect, love, and peace. My books give each young reader a message of hope that will help them grow.

What do you want to convey to your readers?

GS: A love of reading. I love writing my stories and nothing delights me more than if a child enjoys reading them!

Do you prefer being the editor-in-chief of your newspaper, The Rodent's Gazette, or writing your adventures?

GS: I love running the newspaper -- that is my job, after all. But writing stories is my passion and I hope to be sharing my adventures with children for many more years.

How do you spend your time when you are not busy writing or editing?

GS: Holey cheese! I'm just your average mouse...although I am afraid of a few things and I don't like to travel because I get carsick, seasick, and just plain dizzy most of the time. I prefer to stay at home in my nice, cozy mouse hole. I'm a very traditional mouse, I like classical music, good books and old-fashioned cooking -- no meal is complete without a nice chunk of cheese! But what I love to do most is write, so I always make sure there is plenty of time for that. And of course, no day is complete unless I get to read a story to my favorite nephew, Benjamin.

My 7 year old has enjoyed this more than any chapter book I have seen him read. He can't wait to read more. He just finished his second and enjoyed it as much. He says they are great stories. I would recommend them for little boys without question.

This was the first book from the Geronimo Stilton that my 7 year daughter has read. She is addicted she loves reading them they keep her interested and she is usually laughing about something going on in the story. There are times I have to tell her to put the book down to get to bed. I really love how color is incorporated within the words of the story. I would recommend this series it encourages children to read and the artwork and layout of the book is great!

The eBook version is just a photocopy of the book. As a result there is no ability to increase font size, zoom, do dictionary lookups or anything - it's actually worse than reading the print version. The series is great, the eBook is not.

I thought this was a really good book. My favorite character (besides Geronimo Stilton) was Geronimo¿s cousin, Trap. He is very funny. Thea finds a treasure map and she gets Geronimo and Trap to go looking for the treasure. The scariest part of the book was when the Lucky Lady sank! The most exciting part is when Geronimo finally sees the Emerald Eye! I also like the way the book is printed with the words being different colors and styles. It has lots of pictures and maps too. It makes it easier for me to read it. I am going to read all fifty titles as they are translated from Italian to English!

My new chapter reader is thrilled about this series which is unlike any other that we've seen. There's a great map, a character reference insert (the story develops characters which is a higher level than other series for this age) and the content has substance. Really fun and interesting.

You have found the best series if you just bought #1 of G.Stilton. With different fonts and colors your child 'children' will love to read this book. Meet Geronimo a mouse he owns a NewsPaper. He is always late for work and has 1 annoying cousin, Trap an annoying sister, Thea and a loving nephew, Bengamin. He is scared of a lot of things. He has a lot of fun advntures you will love to read. They are my favorite book series. If you like cheese you will like Geronimo. He has whisker licking good tales. These books are Easy To Read. Even though they look hard to read they are easy. So go to the Book Store and but Geronimo Stilton #1!
