Four Mice Deep In The Jungle:I have never been a brave mouse...but lately, my fears were taking over my life! So Thea and Trap decided to cure me. They dragged me away on an airplane (I'm afraid of flying!), all the way to the jungle. There I was forced to eat bug soup, climb trees as tall as skyscrapers, swim in raging rivers, and even wrangle snakes. How would a 'fraidy mouse like me ever survive?
Paws Off, Cheddarface!:Holey cheese, it was strange! Rodents kept telling me I'd done things I had no memory of. Was I going crazy? Had the cheese finally slipped off my cracker? No, I soon discovered the truth: There was a Geronimo look-a-like going around, pretending to be me! Worst of all, he was trying to take over The Rodent's Gazette! I had to get that greedy impostor's paws off my newspaper, but how?

"Herrmann is pitch-perfect as the often-exasperated mouse....Throughout, copious sound effects and snipets of original music are the ideal compliment to these kickey adventures." (Publishers Weekly)
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!
Fun for everyone
Geronimo's grandfather and sister.
Geronimo is my favorite.
We all laughed a lot. Great entertainment for long car rides too!
