In this series there are 5 books published so far, they are:

  1. The Kingdom of Fantasy
  2. The Quest of Paradise
  3. The Amazing Voyage
  4. The Dragon Prophesy
  5. The Volcano of Fire

I liked how Geronimo Stilton is a scaredy mouse but in the end he faces the person who caused the trouble and is the hero. I also like the illustrations and how the words express themself by adding colour to their meanings, for example rainbow was coloured red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink and purple.

Geronimo is just a normal mouse and not an early one, he publishes the Rodents Gazette, the most famous newspaper in New Mouse City. When Geronimo gets to his desk there’s a letter and on it it says: For Geronimo Stilton, Personal, Confidential and Extremely Urgent, in it there’s a letter, it said: TOMORROW AT NOON MEET ME AT THE TOP OF MARBLE HEAD MOUNTAIN AT THE POINT MARKED ON THE MAP ON THE BACK OF THIS PAPER. DON’T BE LATE! I AM COUNTING ON YOU!

When Geronimo gathered his stuff he passes out and enters the Kingdom of Fantasy. I recommend this to 8 to 12 year olds.

Score: 8 out of 10
