    The adventures of Geronimo Stilton in this comic series is quite interesting. I may be too old to read this kind of comics but what's important is that it entertain me not only because of the awesome plot, but because of the fascinating trivia about the Rosetta Stone. If I have a child, I would certainly purchase some issues of this comic series because they will learn something from reading this.

    'Geronimo Stilton #19: Lost in Translation' finds the mice travelling in time to stop the pirate cats. These are fun adventures with a bit of history thrown in. The history this time was the discovery of the Rosetta Stone in Egypt during Napoleon's campaign in 1798. The pirate cats have their own agenda for what to do with it. It may alter the world that Geronimo and his friends know. Will they be able to foil the scheme in time (pun intended)? I've read a few of these.

They fall into the category of things I would have liked to read when I was about 8. The history is interesting, but not to the point where it feels like school. The art is passable for what is needed, but I sometimes have trouble telling the mice from the cats. I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Papercutz and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.

    Now I know that jumping into a series at the nineteenth installment isn't perfect form, but I could not wrap my mind around this plot. I have no idea what happened or why. And the emotionally abusive grandpa figure is not cute. I didn't hate it though. I'm just confuddled.

    Not much to this story, but at least it was more of an adventure than some of the stories. Not sure if the boy actually likes these, but he keeps getting them out of the library...

    This is a cute enough time-travel story of a Mouse, Geronimo Stilton, who is also the editor of the Roden's Gazzette. This is the 19Th in the series, and apparently he has gone on a lot of adventures, but this particular one was to the time of the Neopolonic Wars, when the French were in Egypt, uncovering artifacts to take home with them, such as the Rosetta Stone. This is a cute way to teach about history. Every so often there is a blurb about how important the Rosetta Stone is and was, and what This is a cute enough time-travel story of a Mouse, Geronimo Stilton, who is also the editor of the Roden's Gazzette.

This is a cute way to teach about history. Every so often there is a blurb about how important the Rosetta Stone is and was, and what the French were doing when they are in Egypt. Beyond that it is a story of cats vs. mice, which apparently all the books are about. This was nicely done, good information, but since I didn't have the backstory of Geronimo, and know the characters, I felt a bit like his grandfather who kept asking what was going on. Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.

    *I received this book from the publisher Papercutz and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* This is my first time reading a book from this series but I have been interested in it for some time now and am so glad I got given this to read. Its a really good little adventure story mixed with a touch of sci-fi, time travelling. The characters, expecually the main character, Geronimo Stilton, are likeable and will appeal to most people. The story flowed really well, which makes this a fun read. *I received this book from the publisher Papercutz and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* This is my first time reading a book from this series but I have been interested in it for some time now and am so glad I got given this to read.

    This is the first time I have read a Geronimo Stilton adventure but I can already tell that he would be a hit with 7-9 year olds. I liked his positive attitude to problem-solving, something that is mentioned by the publisher as being important to them. I also liked how history was drip-fed in small amounts which gave just enough to keep readers interested and send them looking for more, without ever getting in the way of the story being told. I would read more of these! (Thank you to Papercutz fo This is the first time I have read a Geronimo Stilton adventure but I can already tell that he would be a hit with 7-9 year olds.

    One of the better plots but thin on historical reference. I loved the twist in the middle! Recommended for series newcomers and the avid fan.
