BOOK REVIEW – GERONIMO STILTON BY ELISABETTA DAMI

Geronimo Stilton

GUEST POST BY CAMERON D’SOUZA

For a long time, I told my mom that the author’s name was ‘Geronimo Stilton’. Once she realized that Geronimo was a mouse, she told me that mice couldn’t write. Only then did I Google it and find out the author’s real name. We both had quite a laugh.

The book covers of Geronimo Stilton & Thea Stilton are quite to the point and tell us more about the stories inside the books.

BOOK DETAILS

Name: Geronimo Stilton & Thea Stilton series
Author: Elisabetta Dami
Format: Hardcopies
Number of pages: Below 400 (each book)
Availability: Amazon (Buy them here)
Rating: 5/5

TITLE & SUBTITLES

The titles are always based on the brave things that Geronimo does despite being who he is. The titles of the Thea Stilton series are about the adventurous mysteries that the Thea Sisters solve.

All the hardcover books have a subtitle, on the cover pages, that say more about their locations. The unique chapter titles are more about what happens in that particular chapter.

I find all the titles catchy enough to read the books.

LANGUAGE

The author originally wrote the books in Italian. And, then they were translated into many other languages. Scholastic has translated them into simple English which makes the book quite enjoyable by almost every 8- to 12-year-old in the world. My friend aged 16, who introduced me to these books, also still loves them a lot.

BLURB

Geronimo Stilton books:- These books are all about Geronimo who is a fraidy mouse. He is the owner of the most popular newspaper house, on Mouse Island, called ‘The Rodent’s Gazette’. He also publishes books which are about his ‘fabumouse’ (fabulous) adventures. Geronimo Stilton books tell us how Geronimo, a gentlemouse, gets involved in dangerous adventures only because he cannot ignore a cry for help. Other characters in these books are Bruce Hyena, Creepela von Cacklefur, Benjamin Stilton (his nephew), Trap Stilton (his cousin), Thea Stilton (his sister), William Shortpaws (his Grandfather), etc.

Thea Stilton books:- Thea is a teacher at Mouseford Academy. She made friends with 5 of her mouselette students and writes about their secret adventures. Their names are Pamela, Colette, Nicky, Paulina and Violet and they love solving mysteries.

REASONS I LIKED THE BOOK

Each book is filled with so many pictures and various colours.
If there is a person, word or legend that the author thinks you may not know about, she gives a description, meaning or background story to help you understand better.
Some words are highlighted in different styles and colours and they make it more interesting to read.
I like how the other characters drag Geronimo into crazy adventures
I like the fun and comedy ways he describes everything.
The author uses simple and amazing words that are expressive.
I like the way the author writes as Geronimo or Thea.
In some books, Geronimo gives an introduction of the characters involved in that story.
Everything is explained so well in Mouse language. Hahaha!

AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT

None.

FINAL THOUGHTS

As of now, I have read around 20 books by Elisabetta Dami. I’m enjoying these books to the fullest! I feel like I am also a part of the Geronimo family. And, I think you should start reading them, too! I’ve already gotten my mom hooked on to some of these books though she likes more adult type adventures and mysteries!

PS: My mom found Hercule PoiRAT the most amusing! And, just to let you know, my mom is typing out what I’ve told her. I’ve spent no screen time creating this post!
