Rumble in the jungle by Geronimo Stilton

cover image

Ill. by Giuseppe Ferrario. Geronimo Stilton series bk 53. Scholastic, 2013. ISBN 9780545481939. 108p.
(Age: 7-9) Highly recommended. Mice. Jungles. Treasure. Adventure stories. Rainforests. Brazil. Amazon Region.
Rumble in the Jungle takes Geronimo Stilton from the comforts of his home off on another exciting fabumouse adventure in Brazil. His adventurous friend Bruce Hyena drops in one evening and hijacks Geronimo's boring Mousebook page and his life. Geronimo narrates this adventure teamed at first with his mouse friends Wild Willie and Maya. Unfortunately Geronimo becomes separated and has to fend for himself in a variety of difficult situations, coping with language problems, the loss of his wallet, samba dancing in a Rio Carnival, tumbling down the Iguazu Falls and searching for stolen treasure.
Information boxes are included for reader interest: maps, country facts, rainforest facts, a recipe and jungle animals. Colourful cartoon illustrations add vibrancy and comic relief as Geronimo stumbles his way through his adventures. Colourful phrases, different fonts and text sizes add emphasis and excitement for the booklover.
This series is extremely popular and I highly recommend this new addition to the series for readers from 7-9 years.
Geronimo's World is available online.
