Geronimo Stilton


Geronimo Stilton Video Clip on YouTube

Both my kids are great fans of Geronimo Stilton. They are 7 and 9 years old. They can read the book in one sitting. While reading their own Geronimo Stilton books, they also request that I read another Geronimo Stilton Book to them at the same time each night. So, quite often we would be reading 3 Geronimo Stilton Books at bedtime. You can imagine how many we have in our collection.

The Geronimo Stilton Books by Scholastic are really enjoyable because of its illustration and cute fonts. Sometimes they include little nuggets of information in them too. Like having a mini encyclopedia within a storybook. However, sometimes, I find the concept rather adult like written from an adult's point of view rather than from a child's view. Still, my kids enjoy them tremendously.

Besides the Geronimo Stilton books, Geronimo Stilton also comes in comics or a full-color Geronimo Stilton Graphic Novel by Papercutz. My kids prefer the books though. I prefer the books too. Maybe the comics are too small for my old eyes.

That was my simple Geronimo Stilton Parent Review. The rest of this post is for all Geronimo Stilton fans and parents of Geronimo Stilton fans. It contains useful links to all things Geronimo Stilton including Geronimo Stilton Games, videos, and many other useful links.

Parents, Teachers and Educators can get a Geronimo Teaching Guide too.

There are so many books in the Geronimo Stilton Series. Where do I start?


The Geronimo Stilton book is a chapter series book. This is great to encourage reading because the child is encouraged to read on. There are basically two types of series books. The first is where each book is the continuation of the previous. Something like the Harry Potter series. The Geronimo Stilton series on the other hand falls in the second category where the story does not continue but the characters are the same. So each new book has a new story using the same familiar characters.

What this means is you can start anywhere. You don't have to read from the beginning. However, reading the first book is always a good introduction to the characters and the entire series. This is what I recommend.

The Geronimo Stilton Box Set Vol 1-3 (As an introduction to the series)

The Geronimo Stilton Christmas Box Set (Just nice for the Holidays)

The Geronimo Stilton Box Set Books 1-41 (If you can afford it and don't have any in your collection yet)

Geronimo Stilton Book No 49 - The Way of the Samurai (Latest in the series at the time of writing)

Geronimo Stilton DVD Volume 1

Geronimo Stilton DVD Volume 2

These are my recommendations, but if you don't like my selection, you can always choose your own Geronimo Stilton Books here. They will make great Christmas Gifts for a boy or girl this year. I find that the Geronimo Stilton Books are not gender specific as they are enjoyed by both boys and girls.

I am sure that Geronimo Stilton and  his fabumouse family are on the wishlist of many fans this Christmas Holiday Season. Check out some of Geronimo Stilton's Christmas titles below:
