Summary

Summary

Geronimo is on the hunt in this fabumouse and super-sized adventure!

There was a mystery in New Mouse City's Egyptian Mouseum! The Black Papyrus, an ancient document that reveals the secret of eternal youth, had disappeared. The mouseum's director asked me to help him find it. Yikes - those Egyptian artifacts freak me out! Luckily, a secret agent came to our aid... but could we trust him? It was up to us to recover the precious scroll!

BONUS! After the story, read an extra Mini Mystery adventure and jokes galore!


Author Notes

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.

Horn Book Review

Newspaper editor (and the series' purported author) Geronimo Stilton must track down an ancient artifact that has vanished from New Mouse City's Egyptian Mouseum. An abundance of visual elements (clue and fact sidebars, wild typeface changes, glitzy graphics, bright cartoon illustrations) and an action-packed pace characterize the formulaic but entertaining series. An appendix includes quizzes and jokes. (c) Copyright 2017. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
