In the ancient village of Mouseborg, Geronimo Stiltonord the smarty-mouseking prefers reading and writing to training for battle against the fearsome dragons. But when the village chief’s wife gets sick and the only way to help her get better is wild mint tea, Geronimo somehow gets roped into going on a quest to find some, along with his cousin Trap and his sister Thea. Along the way, there will be danger of unimaginable proportions; can Geronimo use his brain to escape the dragons and save the village?
“Why don’t I train with the micekings? I am what’s known as a smarty-mouseking. I am all brains and no muscles.”
Attack of the Dragons is the first book in Geronimo Stilton’s new “Micekings” series, a spin-off featuring kids’ favorite mice in an ancient northern setting. This short chapter book is perfect for elementary school-age kids, with just the right kinds of sentences, plenty of mousey puns, and a solid sprinkling of fun, colorful pictures. The book is long enough to tell a compelling story but not so long as to lose readers’ attention. Young readers will no doubt be left eagerly anticipating the next book in the series.
