The Stone of Fire

The Stone of Fire
Cavemice #1
by Geronimo Stilton
Scholastic Paperbacks; 1 edition (January 1, 2013)
128 pages. Intermediate chapter book.

Geronimo Stilton's ancestor, Geronimo Stiltonoot is a reporter for Mouse City's Stone Gazette. This is quite the undertaking as a copy of each issue is handcarved for every resident in the city. Geronimo is often in the wrong place at the wrong time and this leads to him getting involved in solving a mystery with his friend Hercule Poirat. They infiltrate Tiger Khan's camp only to find out the ferocious felines are planning an attack on their very own Mouse City. Will the rodents be able to fend off their invaders? Will Geronimo be able to return to the quiet life of newspaper making? (Actually, paper wasn't invented yet so I guess it was called newsstone making). This humorous adventure story will delight both boys and girls just beginning to read slightly longer chapter books.
