Review: Geronimo Stilton, Secret Agent

As an adult reading this, it was rather trite, silly, and illogical.

When I stepped back and read this as a ten-year old, I loved it. It was fantastic and funny. In this book, ‘Geronimo Stilton, Secret Agent’ (#34 in the Geronimo Stilton series) written by Geronimo Stilton (aka cover 'Geronimo Stilton, Secret Agent' by Elisabetta Dami), the Geronimo again gets himself into trouble. Geronimo Stilton is the editor and publisher of the Rodents Gazette in New Mouse city, the capital of Mouse Island. He is always hungry, always thinking about food and snacks. However imminent disaster always seems to get in the way.

In this story Geronimo loses the deed to the building that houses the newspaper. Trying to find the lost document he searches through trash-cans, the garbage dump, the sewer and a rival’s office. In the end his friend, Kornelius Von Kickpaw who happens to be a secret agent, helps Geronimo recover the deed. It helps to have a friend.

The book is filled with funny pictures, constantly changing typefaces in different colors to help tell the story and emphasize particular words and ideas. You’ll laugh at the funny and sometimes ridiculous comments, asides, and cheese/mouse word plays that flow through the story.

Finally, as an adult again: your child will love these books. You may not understand why, but if you can imagine being very young again, you might.
