Geronimo is back to Japan, but has a dream that he thinks is true, and turns out to be! In his dream, there is a lot of boxes in the castle, and there is in real life!

Geronimo Stilton considers himself the most important mouse around. He is a best selling author and runs The Rodent's Gazette on Mouse Island. He fancies himself to be a scaredy mouse but has done quite a bit of traveling in spite of it. He is pretty routine when at home, for example, on Saturdays he eats a large cheese pizza, one large mozzarella milk shake, and one large cheese danish. He also always wears his pj's and cat-fur slippers. It wasn't until he received a call from Wild Willie that...more

This is the best book yet. When Geronimo goes to japan he learns the way of the samurai on the way he helps find a secret scroll in a secret room all about the long lost fighting technique but it falls into the wrong hands. Find out with this really good book help Geronimo in the way of the samurai.

The book made me feel open for an adventure. The story is about how Geronimo Stilton enjoys an adventure in Japan even though he is very scared. The theme is revealed that everyone who is brave to face fear is a samurai at heart. This book/series would draw the attention of little boys, and the book/series on Thea Stilton would draw more those of little girls. All in all, the Stilton series is fun and amusing.

While I enjoyed the adventure and the way Japanese culture was displayed and highlighted, I felt that the Geronimo Stilton books would be very formulaic. This was my first time reading one; my son read through it quickly and I wanted to know what it was all about. Though I know formulaic chapter books have their place, I felt that the story wouldn't really stick with me. Maybe it's not supposed to. I guess it doesn't matter anyways because my son loved it.

Another excellent read by Mr. Stilton! Recommend by my nephew who enjoyed the book and had no problem with me rereading the whole thing to him.

...you're never too old to read these!! Even the illustrations are awesome.

Geronimo learns Karate and the Way of the Samuri and saves an ancient manuscript in the process. My son actually read a lot of this book on his own - HOORAY! Maybe we're making progress towards making him a "reader".
Leila
Best book series ever. Geronimo is hilarious and even though they are for little kids I still love them and will forever.
Evan
This book is about a mouse named wild Willie who tricked Geronimo into being his karate teacher

The paper for the lost technique is the weaknesses to hit on your body.
