Geronimo Stilton finds himself back in the Kingdom of Fantasy. They need his help to fulfill the Ancient Gemstone Prophecy. He must find the Royal Sapphire and the Royal Ruby before the evil empress of the witches does. Geronimo meets new friends and they help him on his quest. He must travel in disguise if he is to beat the evil empress to the gemstones. Will Geronimo and his friends find the gemstones first?
I have not read all the books in the Kingdom of Fantasy series, but that did not prevent me from understanding what was going on. Each adventure is separate, and can be enjoyed as a stand alone book. There are references to previous adventures, but you do not need to have read the previous books to understand what is going on. It is another fun Geronimo adventure, with the typical puzzles and maps included. I think if you like the Geronimo Stilton books you will like this one too.
This was the thirteenth book the Bookworms read together. Alejandro picked this book for us to read. They both really like the Geronimo Stilton series, and are always trying to find one we all have not read yet. We all read the book, but only Alejandro and I discussed the book together. Here are his thoughts on the book. Warning! There may be some spoilers.
Q&A With The Bookworms Book Club
How many stars do you give the book?
Alejandro 5 stars
Did you like it?
Alejandro I liked that we met some new characters. This was one of my favorite Geronimo Stilton books.
Who was your favorite character?
Alejandro The Rose fairy. And the bird was weird.
There were some cool maps, where would you go?
Alejandro Gold Swamp and Garden Academy
Would you sail in a storm?
Alejandro Yes! To see what happens.
Geronimo is turned into a frog, would you like to be turned into one?
Alejandro Yes, I would like to be a frog. I could go places no one else could. I would want to control turning into a frog and turning human though.
Was Geronimo brave?
Alejandro No. He was shivering because he was scared.
Whitney: Can you be scared and brave?
Alejandro Yes. I think you can.
Whitney: I think it shows more bravery to do something when you are afraid.
Alejandro Yes. Because anyone can do it if they aren't afraid of it. It shows courage when you are scared to do it.
Geronimo has trouble knowing who to trust, who do you think he should trust?
Alejandro He should trust the Rider because he is a knight and they are suppose to be loyal. He shouldn't trust the coyote because you can never trust foxes and coyotes in stories.
Would you share with the old lady Geronimo encounters?
Alejandro No! What if she is a spy?
Geronimo has a focus finder that helps him find what he is looking for, what did you think of it? What would you look for with it?
Alejandro I thought it was really cool. I would find the lost city of Atlantis, Greek ruins, and maybe a part of Pangia that broke off and got lost in the ocean.
Thank you Paige and Alejandro for reading the book, and Alejandro for reviewing the book with me.
