"My old friend Creepella von Cacklefur invited me to her family's spooky castle. And before I could say 'not for all the cheese in Cheddarton,' she'd mousenapped me! And holey cheese, what an adventure! I was off to Niagara Falls on a field trip with my nephew Benjamin's class. I was surrounded by mischievous young mouselets who seemed determined to send me over the Falls in a barrel!"

My kids and I read Geronimo Stilton for a couple of years now and found them funny, witty, well-designed and educational, but nothing prepared us for amazing reading by Bill Lobley! I can never do voices and acting he does, and, naturally, my kids prefer his reading to mine:)
I prefer Geronimo Stilton books to other books for kids of that age, because the sentences are not simplistic and repetitive. These particular books are done to read like a cartoon so even the scary scenes are actually funny.
Bill Lobley is a master! He does so many characters in this book, and they all sound like they've been read by a different person. He is also a great actor, so each character and situation is truly brought to life in his interpretation.
