About Geronimo Stilton:
The title character is a talking mouse which lives in New Mouse City on Mouse Island. A best-selling author, Geronimo Stilton works as a journalist and editor for the fictional newspaper The Rodent’s Gazette.
He has a younger sister named Thea Stilton a cousin named Trap Stilton and a favourite little nephew, nine-year-old Benjamin Stilton. Geronimo is a nervous, mild-mannered mouse who would like nothing better than to live a quiet life, but he keeps getting involved in far-away adventures with Thea, Trap, and Benjamin, and sometimes Aunt Sweetfur. The books are written as though they are autobiographical adventure stories.
Though Geronimo adventures are based on fantasy, they nevertheless have a touch of reality which makes the stories engrossingly interesting for the children to read.
