Geronimo is invited to the opening of the new science labs at his nephew Benjamin's school, and he's excited because Dr. Margo Bitmouse will be there, and he has a crush on her. He's nervous about making his speech, and embarrasses himself by slipping on the floor, but that is of little importance when he notices a blue spot on the principal's nose. Soon, most of the students are plagued by these blue spots, and it's up to Geronimo to find the cause. The Rodent's Gazette also publishes helpful hints about stopping the spread of the disease, at the request of Dr. Brainymouse. When the labs where the scientists are trying to find the cure are destroyed, the school offers their labs for use. Even though a cure is found, there are still problems to be overcome when The Shadow and Sleezer show up on the scene, but Geronimo still manages to save the day.
Good Points
While Geronimo Stilton books are always fairly silly, I was glad to see that there were some useful science facts in this one. There is a side bar about lab safety, for example, and a flow chart on how to conduct research. It's encouraging to see that even fictional mice think that science is important enough to create awesome labs in their schools. Fictional mice must be better funded!

As always, the pictures and colorful test in these books is a big draw, and many readers will find that the pictures help them to understand what is going on in the story. The interest level on this book is stated as 4th grade, but the mystery, investigations, and love interests are appealing to even older students. Of course, Geronimo's pratfalls and silliness don't hurt when it comes to readers of all ages finding his antics amusing.

This is a great series to hand to a variety of readers. Those who enjoy Lunch Lady and Squish books will find these books a little more challenging, while readers who have looked at the Papercutz Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys graphic novels will find these to be a delightfully silly diversion.
