I was previously invited to the launch of Scholastic’s Geronimo Stilton Academy Pawbooks held at Greenbelt 4 last 22 August, but I was not able to make it because of the bad weather. It was fortunate that Scholastic generously sent me samples of the workbooks to feature on the blog today.
The little man and I have yet to discover Geronimo Stilton and his adventures, but I have read and heard good stuff about this book series from other mum friends whose kids are crazy over these books. The Geronimo Stilton series, intended for children aged 6-12, is a best-selling children’s book series written by Elisabetta Dami, a famous Italian children’s books writer. Originally published in Italy, Scholastic has been publishing its English version since 2004. The books featured autobiographical adventures of journalist, editor and best-selling author, Geronimo Stilton and his sister, Thea Stilton. From time to time, the books also feature the siblings cousin, Trap, and Geronimo’s favorite nephew, 9-year old, Benjamin. According to Wikipedia, the Genonimo Stilton series became the most popular children’s books in Italy and has since been translated into 35 different languages.
This year, Scholastic launched the Geronimo Stilton Academy Pawbooks, which can a great reading companion for the Geronimo Stilton Series. These Pawbooks aims to prepare children to become mouse-ter-ful readers and writers just like Geronimo Stilton and make learning English as enjoyable as chewing off a large chunk of cheese!
