    This is the third graphic novel in the Geronimo Stilton Graphic Novel series published by Papercutz but it was the fourth volume I read to my daughters. This is another fun adventures of Geronimo Stilton and friends! In this book they go back in time during the era of the Roman Empire to stop the Pirate Cats from changing in history. Along the way readers will learn more about the Roman empire specifically with the Coliseum and also the sewage system of the Roman Empire.

Along the way readers will learn more about the Roman empire specifically with the Coliseum and also the sewage system of the Roman Empire. I really really enjoyed the historical facts taught in the book and there’s a separate panel in this graphic novel for historical information as the plot unfolds. What an interesting and fun way to learn history! Like other Geronimo Stilton’s work thus far I recommend it to kids and parents reading to their kids!

    I preferred the graphic novel version to the original JE books. That being said, I skimmed the majority of it and did not read the little text boxes and instead just followed the pictures. I suppose that could have been the main reason behind making it into a graphic novel format...

    Not my favorite by far. The writing and pacing definitely improves after this one. I could’ve skipped it and been fine.

Як підказує нам назва, у «Шахраях у Колізеї» Джеронімо Стілтон зі своїми супутниками відправляються до Стародавнього Риму, де їхні закляті вороги коти-пірати намагаються внести корективи під час відкриття знаменитого амфітеатру Флавіїв, який усім нам добре відомий під назвою Колізей. Коти дуже хитрі, вміють спритно маніпулювати іншими і прикидатися мишами, щоб ніхто нічого не запідозрив, проте наша хоробра мишача команда вже не раз давала їм відсіч, тож упорається і цього разу.

I really enjoyed it and I think any child who would read it would enjoy it as well. I would keep these book in my future classroom and I would recommend children from the age or 5 to 8 to read these book. These books also channel the child imagination with a lot of the details that happen within the book. All in all, I enjoyed this book and I would rate it 4 stars out of 5.

    Our youngest loves the books in the Geronimo Stilton series. And although they aren't my favorite, I'm willing to oblige. When she picked out this book, along with two others, I naively thought they were shorter books, so I happily borrowed them all, only to realize that they are all graphic novels. We slowly read this book, although it didn't take us as long to read it, compared to Geronimo Stilton #2: The Secret of the Sphinx.

We slowly read this book, although it didn't take us as long to read it, compared to Geronimo Stilton #2: The Secret of the Sphinx. I think I'm getting used to reading graphic novels to them, but I still don't like it and I normally only read a couple of pages at a time. I certainly hope that they start reading more of these on their own, so that I do not have to read them aloud. In any case, this story does include some fascinating history and facts about ancient Rome, so it's a worthwhile read.

    I really enjoy the facts in these children's graphic novels. They make learning fun for my homeschooler. So far, I have only spotted one error in fact. On page 36, the tavernas fact scroll states "...you could eat dishes with polenta..." Actually, that would have been impossible. Polenta is made with cornmeal. Corn is a New World food that only made it to the Old World which includes Rome after 1492 and Columbus' fateful journey.

Geronimo and his friends and family wouldn't have missed any of these New World foods since there was plenty of CHEESE to go around in Ancient Rome.

    One afternoon Geronimo Stilton wants to enjoy his time by relaxing and hanging out with his family. But as he was walking he gets a distress call from his friend and tells him that there is an emergency. So Geronimo runs to his friend to find out what the problem was. Then when he had arrived the emergency required Geronimo to go back in time and save the colosseum. If not then the colosseum today would be shattered.

    I haven't read any Geronimo Stilton books though they are very popular in the elementary school now. Additionally I don't read graphic novels. This book was entertaining for the kids, very colorful and bright, with a touch of history. On many pages was an aside describing something of life in ancient Rome. I think the students will read the story for just the story, but the history adds a bit to the tale.

    This book is a mystery and an adventure book. The Stilton family tries to solve the mystery of the pirate cats. They go back in time to the aintient Greek times. And go to the Coliseum and catch one of the pirate cats [Bonzo]. They split up to find the two other cats Tersilla and catardon. But they find out that the cats are wearing mouse deskises. I think you should read this book if you like mystery and adventure books.
