Paws Off the Pearl! (Geronimo Stilton Cavemice #12)
October 25, 2016
In the lagoon near Old Mouse City, cavemice have discovered a giant oyster. It holds a pearl of megalithic proportions! Since the mice of the lagoon don't have the tools to fish the oyster out of the water, they call on Geronimo Stiltonoot to help. Can figure out how to get the pearl before the saber-toothed tigers catch wind of it?

Geronimo is one of those series that is an acquired taste, sort of like Volcanico cheese (sour milk and hot lava peppers). There's not a whole lot of character development, but I find myself looking forward to new cheese flavored interjections, additional threatening animals, and new adventures for the mice to have. The fact that Geronimo is a reporter in most of his historic incarnations is interesting as well.
Historical purists will no doubt take umbrage at lines like "you will be served on a platter ... with Paleozoic onions and Jurassic potatoes as a side dish". Readers in the target demographic will instead focus on the brightly colored text, vibrant pictures of jumping saber tooth tigers, and Geronimo's unabashed yet reluctant enthusiasm for adventuring with his friends.
