Who is Geronimo Stilton?That's me! I run a newspaper, but my true passion is writing tales of adventure. Here in New Mouse City, the capital of Mouse Island, my books are all bestsellers! My stories are full of fun — tastier than Swiss cheese and tangier than extra-sharp cheddar. They are whicker-licking good stories, and that's a prom...

GERONIMO STILTON was born in New Mouse City, Mouse Island. He is Rattus Emeritus of Mousomorphic Literature and Neo-Ratonic Comparative Philosophy. In his spare time, Mr. Stilton collects antique cheese rinds and plays golf. But what he most enjoys is telling stories to his nephew Benjamin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome book! This is another great adventure from Geronimo Stilton. In this book he goes to Egypt to interview a famous Archaeologist about an invention but instead gets caught up in an adventure but doesn't come back to the Gazette with a story. Instead he writes a book. I found this book interesting as it has lots of twists and makes you laugh. The only part I don't like is when the author introduces Geronimo in every book the same way. He always tells you his name and what he does. It's pretty cool how the author makes Geronimo seem like a real person. Geronimo is a mouse that speaks, wears clothes and even drives a car. My favorite Geronimo Stilton book is Merry Christmas Geronimo but this was a close second. Geronimo's family acts like a real human family and they're always playing tricks on Geronimo especially his brother Trap. I think anyone who likes to read will love this book. The pictures are realistic and they use historic monuments and information about the pyramids so you learn some interesting facts. The author always pauses from the story and gives a few pages on the facts of the adventure. I would rate this book 8/10. I recommend this book to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious! What a superb book for all ages! There are many colourful pictures to amuse the non-readers, short chapters with slightly larger print for emerging readers, a 113 page story for the comfortable readers and great puns to amuse the adult readers. The book starts with a visual map of who’s who in the story. The story has mice living like humans and the cities and various aspects are plays on words; for example, New Mouse City (New York City). Clothes, food, sports are twisted to be more mice like such as main dishes all being different kinds of cheese (blue Gouda casserole). The main character is Geronimo Stilton, editor of the Rodents Gazette and the stories are written in first person. There are over 40 Geronimo Stilton stories now and they can also be found written in French and Spanish. This story is about Geronimo’s Grandfather Willy who is concerned about how much is being spent at the Gazette and he wants expenses to be cut back. Grandfather Willy takes drastic measures to save money and even fires all the staff. He hires on three family members to “help” Geronimo. Then he sends Geronimo to Egypt to do a special report. Geronimo then tells all his adventures in Egypt. Read the story to find out what happens when he gets back from Egypt! Young readers will enjoy the use of various fonts. Most of the story is written in black in a slightly larger font that is probably Times New Roman. However, some words that the author wants to emphasize are written in various word arts of different colours, not to mention not always written in a straight line! All readers will enjoy learning a bit about Egypt and laugh at all the silly adventures poor Geronimo has.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheesy but awesome ! The Curse of the Cheese Pyramid is a really funny book. Geronimo Stilton is a reporter for the family newspaper, The Rodent's Gazette, which is owned by his grandfather, Grandfather William Shortpaws. His grandfather wants to save money so he fires everyone and sells almost everthing. (They even have to use old newspapers for toilet paper!) You should see (read) what else grandfather does to save money! Grandfather hires only relatives to work for the paper to economize. He sends Geronimo to Egypt to write an article about Professor Alrat Spitfur's discovery to make energy cheeply. Since the grandfather wants to save money, he books Geronimo on a plane that is not fit for flying. If you read this book, you will realize why you want your plane to always be in the best condition. When Geronimo interviews Alrat Spitfur, he shows him his experiments and talks of his secret ingredient to change camel dung to energy with the use of the sun. They visit Cheop's pyramid and Alrat mentions the curse of the pyramids. Anyone who discovers a pyramid ends up having bad luck. Alrat says he does not believe the curse yet, he has an accident in the pyramid because a month ago he had discovered a pyramid himself. Alrat bangs his head and forgets the secret ingredient. Grandfather Williams brings Geronimo back on a dangerous cargo ship in order to save money. If you want to know why it is dangerous, read the book! Geronimo returns without a story to the city. Back at The Rodent's Gazette, Geronimo finds that everybody that is working for his grandfather is getting fed with grandpa's old cheap ways. They think of a plot to get rid of him for a few months. Will it work? Read the book and find out. At the end of the book, Alrat Spitfur wants Geronimo to visit him in Egypt again. Could it be that he remembers the secret ingredient? Will Geronimo get back on that scrary plane? Read "The Curse of the Cheese Pyramid" and find out for yourself.
