I, Geronimo Stilton, was called to the Kingdom of Fantasy for the ninth time! Blossom, Queen of the Fairies, had disappeared, along with three powerful magical objects: The Book of a Thousand Spells, the Crystal Sphere, and the Whispering Wand. If those objects ended up in the wrong hands, they could destroy the whole realm!

Accompanied by new, magical friends, I had to cross horrifying kingdoms full of spiders and snakes before facing a terrible evil wizard. Squeak! Could I make it in time to save Blossom -- and the entire Kingdom of Fantasy?

When Geronimo is worried about his stressful newspaper writing job, he travels in his dreams to the Kingdom of Fantasy. This time, he arrives to find that Queen Blossom is missing. When King Regal built the Crystal Castle, he had the help of the Book of Spells, Crystal Sphere, and Whispering Wand, and these artifacts could help rescue Blossom. However, Geronimo finds that they are missing as well, so along with his friends, tries to retrieve them in order to rescue the princess.
Good Points
For some reason, this series is often published in a paper over board hardcover, which is good news for libraries. The multiple full color illustrations make for a very lovely, if heavy, tome. Also a plus is the fact that these don't have the heavy chemical smell that other graphic novels have!

The Kingdom of Fantasty series books tend to be longer and more complicated than the first series. There are more pictures, including maps and puzzles. New fantasy characters often get a two page spread describing them, and even objects in the story occasionally rate a break in the narrative to explain them. There are still the illustrations on every page, as well as the words in different colors and fonts, but these are a bit longer because of the additional information.

The story lines are also more complicated. While the Miceking series has simple plots where Geronimo must go and accomplish one thing, the fantasy plots often have two complimentary story lines as well as more characters. This makes the book a fun choice for more sophisticated readers who might like books like Harry Potter or Nimmo's Charlie Bone but who want a fun read with more pictures.
