    When my old friend Professor von Volt called to ask for help, I agreed immediately, even though it meant trekking halfway around the world to Mouse Everest! The trip was long and dangerous. I almost froze my tail off along the way. And then I was kidnapped by a yeti! Yes, it was truly an amazing adventure.

    My two boys, 6 & 10, LOVE listening to the Geronimo Stilton stories. They must listen to a story every two weeks. They never tire of these well read and animated funny books. The narrator uses a combination of voices and accents to distinguish each character, as well, sound effects are added in the background to polish off the effect. The stories are always written in a comical way with punny - play on words -vocabluary. The boys enjoy the strong characters and outlandish adventures. Geronimo seems to get himself into trouble on his adventures, he is often afraid, (he is a scardy mouse), but he works through it with the help of his family and they often solve the mystery. It's good for the boys to hear about someone who is afraid, but faces his fears. The humour lightens the mood. I would highly recommend these books. My boys prefer them to movies on long car rides, they choose to listen to the stories while they play and sometimes over watching TV. It gets their imaginations going. I keep my iPod close by and Geronimo is always accepted as a special treat!

    That the average adult spends 50 to 70 percent of their day sitting is no surprise to anyone who works in an office environment. But few realize the health consequences they are suffering as a result of modernity's increasingly sedentary lifestyle, or the effects it has had on society at large. In Get Up!, health expert James A. Levine's original scientific research shows that today's chair-based world, where we no longer use our bodies as they evolved to be used, is having negativeconsequences on our health.

    This book is well organized and full of great information explaining the situation of our society - strapped in chairs. It all adds up to an "Ah Ha". No wonder I feel lethargic and my body aches. I need to get up! I'm telling everyone about this information. Worth it.
