*** Thanks to Scholastic Publishers for providing me the advanced review copy. ***

Well, I think one is never late for reading comics, fairy tales or children's novels.  It all depends on one's own thinking, though.  So, here I am requesting for this comic to Scholastic.  As always, whenever some new book arrives, I felt happy.

But, this is something different.  When I was in junior school, my school used to conduct this Scholastic Book Fair, which the teachers insist us on attending along with our parents.  And for every book fair, my dad used to get so many comics and children's books for me from Scholastic.  And I forgot how I used to be in those times..coming home with all those books feels to me like I am the richest and happiest person on Earth.  First, thanks to this novel - The Stone of Fire (Geronimo Stilton Cavemice #1) - for bringing back all those sweet memories.

So, to the story..

You know Geronimo Stilton from the popular "Geronimo Stilton" comic series?  Below is the picture of him.

Geronimo Stilton, now, writes about the adventures his great ancestor, Geronimo Stiltonoot, a cave mice, who lived in the stone age, where mice travel in dinosaurs and news are carved in stones.  In this adventurous Old Mouse City, one of the most important artifact in the mouseum has been stolen.  Now, its up to Geronimo Stiltonoot and his detective cave mouse friend Hercules to find the stone and return them back.

Good story for a comic, isn't it?  Did I mention about the illustrations?  Its awesome people!  Just go get it and read it or give it to your kids.  The words are given different font and colors to describe the word, for example the word "TIGERS" is given in orange color with some stripe, the word "PAINTING" has different color for each letter with a cute font, etc.

This colorful novel will be fun..entertaining..exciting..and above all, will bring back your sweet memories..
