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!
