About the Book
Return to the past with Geronimo Stilton in this fabumouse special edition!
Imagine my surprise when I, Geronimo Stilton, was offered the chance to travel back in time again! Professor Paws von Volt entrusted me to lead my family on a secret journey in his new time machine.
This voyage took us to ancient Rome, to the great Maya Empire, and to the Palace of Versailles during the age of the Sun King! Along the way I competed in a scary chariot race, saved some mouselings from a hungry jaguar, and was forced to organize a huge party for the king who had everything. What a wild trip through history!
My Take on the Book
Professor Von Volt is an inventor. In this story he takes Geronimo and several other mice to visit the Mayan people, ancient Rome, and the king in Versailles, France. You can always be sure that there will be adventures and exciting experiences for Geronimo and his family.
The stories supply not only adventure but hilarious narration. The author included puns and descriptive language to help the reader make visual connections with the text. The author includes facts on various pages about the people or situations of the times.
At the end of the book there are games and activities. For example your child will find directions to make a mosaic, visual and written instructions for making an "emerald " necklace, and playing a game called "nuts". I felt these were nice extensions of the story.
