SPECIAL PREVIEW: Geronimo Stilton rescues the Olympics
The latest Geronimo Stilton graphic novel, Geronimo Stilton #10: Geronimo Saves the Olympics, jumps right on the Olympics bandwagon with a wacky tale set mostly in the first modern Olympics, which were held in 1896. Geronimo Stilton stories always involve a gang of low-life cats who go back in time and try to change history in order to tilt the cat/mouse balance more heavily in their favor. In this delightful—and very funny—graphic novel, the cats bring 21st-century technology, at its goofiest, to the first Olympics in hopes of capturing all the medals and establishing the superiority of cats. Does that make sense? No? Don’t worry, it’s a fun ride anyway, especially the gadgets they use to try to win the events.
