Geronimo Stilton #57: The Stinky Cheese Vacation

What is the book about?

This book is about Geronimo Stilton. One day Geronimo Stilton, was finishing up work one evening when he opened a letter from Uncle Stingysnout. He needed to see him immediately!

Stilton headed straight to Penny Pincher Castle for what he thought would be a nice visit. But his uncle Stingysnout put him straight to work. It was a really terrible vacation for Stilton!

My favourite Character:

My favourite character is Geronimo Stilton because he is kind-hearted and say no to anybody. I don’t like the uncle because he is money minded. I don’t know about others because they are not well defined.

My opinion of the book: The book was great. I love the cheese in the treasure.

It was a terribly frightening dragon. It even frightened Harold. He backed away. His hand holding the purple crayon shook.

Do you know what Harold did with a purple crayon?

It was not an ordinary crayon – it was a magic crayon. Because, he drew a town with that purple crayon but it was full of windows all over.

Harold is the only one character in this story.

Harold and the Purple Crayon 1

This is a kiddish and ‘not so good and not so bad’ story.

I like the climax because it is so good. You need to read this book at least once.

BOMB! | Jim Eldridge

Hi friends,

I just read this story book. I was so thrilled as if I saw the Bomb itself.

Author: Jim Eldridge
Illustrator: Dylan Gibson
Publishing: Edinburgh : Barrington Stoke, 2011.

This is a thriller novella. A man called Rob came to defuse the bomb. When another man Tom went to defuse it in the railway station, which is left by some criminals, he cut the wrong wire and he died on the spot.

Rob was from an Army. He had lot of experience to defuse the bomb. He hid himself in a ACE cleaner’s dress. The chapter ‘60 seconds left‘ was so thrilling.


The Knight Of Swords And Spooks | Terry Deary

I love this novella, because of four reasons.

  • This is story of knights.
  • It was a funny story.
  • It was a thriller as well.
  • I learned many new words from this story

The Knight Of Swords And Spooks 01

In this story I learned how does a warrior fights and how does the battle will be and how does the king will be in that time.

The characters are –

King Richard III - King of England - The Knight Of Swords And Spooks

King Richard III – King of England – The Knight Of Swords And Spooks

Henry Tudor – The enemy of the King Richard III

George - a little boy - The Knight Of Swords And Spooks

I like a poem from this story.

The rat, the cat and the Lovel dog,

Rule all the England under the hog.

The Knight Of Swords And Spooks 06

I wrote this story book like a bear eating honey.

I wanted to be a knight after reading this novella. But this happened in the past. So I cannot be one. A knight’s lifestyle is different, however only when I’m on the winning side.

What happened at last? What happened to George? What happened to England. You would see in a twisting climax.

The mysterious horse man was not smiling. He had a fearful dark voice. But he was very kind to Annie. Whether Annie encountered with the ghost of marshland, was she able to meet Dr Grant? The climax answered these questions.
