By Lisa - Homeschooling Mom
This is a fantastic series for both kids starting to read and for accomplished readers. The text and pictures as well as the use of images embedded in the printed text give new reader “hints” and the stories themselves keep all kids interested. I would say a good age range to read these books 6-9 years old but that’s just my guideline- use your own judgment.
In the series, Geronimo Stilton is a mouse who lives in New Mouse City on Mouse Island. Geronimo Stilton is an and in most of the stories he is working as a journalist for The Rodent’s Gazette.
He has a younger sister named Thea Stilton, a cousin named Trap Stilton, and a favorite little nephew, nine-year-old Benjamin Stilton. The books are written as though they are autobiographical adventure stories.
Good Book Series for for Boys!
I have compiled a complete list of Geronimo Stilton book titles- we have the entire series (thanks to Grandma) that my almost 11 year old daughter loves and my youngest (almost 5 year old boy) has been showing interest- so buying these books is a safe bet if you want multiple children to enjoy. They are perfect books for both boys and girls- and stories are fun enough that I can read them to kids as well without mind going numb :-)
