My Name is Stilton, Geronimo Stilton

If you like silly stories, My name is Stilton, Geronimo Stilton is the book for you. It is a very silly story about a stick in the mud rat named Geronimo Stilton and his wacky aide Pinky Pick. Pinky Pick gets poor Geronimo into one crazy situation after the other. They even go for an adventure to the North Pole. That's a long way off for Geronimo Stilton, who would rather sit at home with a cup of tea than go anywhere, especially the North Pole! This funny story is really great for anybody who is just beginning to read at the chapter book level.
