The Cheese Experiment (Geronimo Stilton #63)
June 28, 2016
New Mouse City was in a panic. A strange epidemic had broken out -- mice everywhere were covered in weird blue spots! Mouse Island's most famouse doctor immediately set to work with his team to try to find the cure... but someone was trying to stop him. Could I figure out who before I ended up blue myself?

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.
