by Geronimo Stilton

This was my first Geronimo Stilton book (read with/to my 7-year-old son), and I was very pleasantly surprised. The first thing you notice about this book, is the creative use of colours/fonts/shapes/curves of various emphasis words throughout. For example, you read the title of the resort spa, and it's in pink, curly font - you read the word excited and it's multicoloured in a bold spikey font - etc. It's quite interesting.

I also quite enjoyed the little side information (not excessively done, but a few parts here and there) that were really good at elaborating either story or factual (in the mouse world) information. For example this book was on pirates, so there's a 2-page information dictionary type part for pirate terminology and it's meaning. Later on, there's a few "famous pirates" and when they lived/why, etc. Also, the illustrations are sometimes part of the text page or a full page on its own.

The story itself was well written - exciting enough to keep the target audience interested, but not so drawn out as some stories - which serves well to keep the reader interested. There are cute little play on words throughout (again, not done excessively to annoy, but just enough to stay cute/fun), using mouse/rodents/cheese/etc. such as the mouseum (museum) or a mousetache (moustache). I enjoyed it.

Finally, the characters were fun and interesting. Each mouse in the family has their own personalities and it is fun seeing them mesh together. The main character isn't "perfect", nor claims to be - and they all have their quirks. Overall, it is a really good story and I look forward to reading more in the series, as does my son.
