The Stone of Fire

Geronimo Stilton Cavemice #1
The Stone of Fire
Geronimo Stilton

Geronimo Stiltonoot is Geronimo Stilton's cavemouse ancestor. He also runs a newspaper company. But everything is written on stone tablets. His life is a little bit more dangerous because it includes meteorites, dinosaurs, and falling stone mail. But Geronimo puts his life in even more danger when one day he decides to help the town's museum get its stolen Stone of Fire back. His cavemouse friend, Hercule Poirat, joins him on his journey to rescue the stone from some ancient fighting felines. The chapters are designed to hold even the shortest attention. The bright and colorful pictures are funny and fit perfectly with the story. Each paragraph is filled with colorful words that are drawn to indicate their meaning. Boys especially, will enjoy the gross descriptions of fur balls, brown sludge goo, and poop. Most of the characters from the original Geronimo Stilton books are brought back in the caveman book, with slightly different names. Fans of Geronimo will love the spinoff that tells all about where Geronimo came from, while still filled with danger and intrigue.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
