The following review by Isabella (6 yr old):
"halloween and egypt and mummies... oh, my i admit it, i am a fraidymouse. halloween scares me out of my fur this year, i got an urgent message from my friend, professor sandsnout, just before halloween. he needed my help, so i rushed off to the egyptian mouseum to find him. but i didnt expect to find a real, a live mummie,too oh, whats a fraidymouse to do."
Parental comment: These newer 'Stilton' books have more to offer than the older ones. That being mare extra side-stories besides the main story-line. Her alittle ancient egypt, the sphinx, hieroglyphics.......
Wait time for a pop quiz. Hey Isabella do you know what hierogyphics are?
"yes hieroglyphics is what the egyptians write on the walls or on special paper about their life and lifetime"
Parental smile - - and comment: Thank you Geronimo Stilton!
Yes school is a main focus. But anything that stimulates our children to read and learn is great.
