Geronimo Stilton Series

Geronimo Stilton
Author: Geronimo Stilton
Guided Reading Level: M-O
My Recommended Age: 8 and Up

My first experience with Geronimo came in the form of a Wendy's Kids Meal. I am serious! A few years ago, Wendy's ran a promotion where they included "Books on CD" as their prize... LOVED THAT! We managed to get a Magic Treehouse, Geronimo Stilton, and Junie B. Jones. Anyway, these Cd's were my kids first experience with Chapter Book Cd's. They were great! The kids could follow along, and didn't mind hearing them over and over.  I, however, got tired of listening to the same story, so I went to the library and got  more.

Geronimo Stilton is a mouse who loves to write exciting stories. He runs a newspaper, but often leaves, searching for adventure. His first "tail", Lost Treasure of the Emerald Eye, began with a mysterious map of a secret treasure on a faraway island, and a hunt to recover the magnificent prize. In The Curse of the Cheese Pyramid, Geronimo heads off to Egypt to discover tales of mummies and hieroglyphics. While there, he hopes to learn the secret of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient Mouse World...
I suppose that a mouse's big adventure might seem small to us, which is what makes Geronimo a fun read for kids. It is not at all threatening or scary, yet feels like a "BIG" read. It has some cartoon type action, "Wham and Boings", but nothing offensive. It is an easier chapter book with illustrations and a larger typeset, perfect for the transitioning readers.
If all else fails, EBAY is full of GREAT Wendy's Cd's for listening enjoyment.
Happy Reading
