I was browsing through a scholastic book club newsletter that my kids receive from school and came across three books, the Geronimo Stilton Mini Mysteries, that I hadn’t’ heard of before. Flaming Cheese-sticks! Three new Geronimo Stilton books that had escaped my attention!
Being the Geronimo Stilton fan that I was I immediately set about to find out more about the books and how they had escaped my notice.
I hopped online and wandered over to Amazon.com and found…nothing.
Did this mean that the books did not really exist?
So then I clicked over to Google and did a general search for “Geronimo Stilton Mini Mysteries“. What I discovered confused me even more. I found a little information, but not alot. They were real but only for sale in certain countries, so far.
What were these mysterious “Mini- Mysteries” and how had they evaded not only my sleuth-like vigilance of all-things-Geronimo but also the huge bookstore that is Amazon?
I’ll share with you what I found.
Geronimo Stilton Mini Mysteries
In short, these new Mini Mysteries are…well…short.
They are about 96 pages each, smaller in size (height) and priced at $3.99.
The first three books are:
Geronimo Stilton Mini Mysteries Book One: Super Scam
After a terrible day at the office, Geronimo’s nephew Benjamin convinces him to stand in line outside the new Crooked Whiskers Shopping Centre to get one of the free hi-fi headphone sets being given to every customer.
Once Geronimo and Benjamin put on their headphones, they can’t stop singing and dancing-and buying everything they can get their paws on!
Something strange is going on-will Geronimo figure it out before it’s too late?
Geronimo Stilton Mini Mysteries Book Two: Lake Monster
A mysterious monster has been sighted in a lake on Mouse Island. I knew I was just the rodent to investigate! But when I travelled to the lake with my family to try to photograph the monster everything started to go wrong.
Could I figure out this creature’s secret? Moldy mozzarella, it was an adventure!
Geronimo Stilton Mini Mysteries Book Three: Mouse Hoax
Geronimo Stilton has been invited to an art show at the house of a world famouse painter. When Geronimo notices the artist acting strange, his whiskers begin to twitch.
Why is the painter so keen on avoiding Geronimo’s friend, a bumbling inspector? Before he knows it, Geronimo receives a note that leads them to a mysterious message hidden within a group of paintings. But in order to crack the code, Geronimo will have to buy the paintings—so they’d better solve this mystery before he goes broke!
Who could be sending Geronimo on this wild mouse chase?
I’ve ordered the first book and will post more about the books when it arrives.
