More than 18 million Geronimo Stilton books in print! I was just minding my business at home when I got a telephone call. It was my uncle Samuel S. Stingysnout, inviting the whole Stilton family to creepy, faraway Penny Pincher Castle for a big surprise. Moldy mozzarella -- I'm not much of a traveling mouse, and I hate surprises. But Thea, Trap, and Benjamin were going, so ...more

So far this is the funniest Geronimo Stilton book that's come out. My daughter and I were laying in bed constantly laughing over this book.

Geronimo, Thea, Benjamin and Trap are invited to the Stingysnout Castle by Uncle Samuel for a ceremony, but Geronimo can't get Samuel to tell him what kind of ceremony it is. So Geronimo and his crew show up to the Stingysnout castle even though they are all dreading the visit. They don't like to go to the castle because of how stingy uncle Samuel is.

It was so nice and I think of that ghost was real in Night frights chapter

The book, Geronimo Stilton: the haunted castle was very good and was written quite well. The author works a lot of humor into which I like. I have read a lot of these books throughout the years, and this was probably one of my favorites. Each book in the series is on a completely different topic which is cool because it mixes things up and makes it more enjoyable to read. This one was about how Geronimo and his family got invited to a fake funeral by his family friend that live in a haunted cast ...more

Another popular kids series that I've never read before. The story itself is charming and I liked the narrators voice. I found the change in font exceedingly distracting. I think it's one of those elements that some kids will love and others won't get past. I'm not sure that the change in font really adds anything, so it's probably better without it because there are many kids I recommend the books to (even before I'd read them) who I know would like the stories, but are turned off by the font.

This book was well written and it had great appeal by both my son and myself. The illistrations in the book provided in-depth detail about the characters in the book and it even provided maps of the fictional town Geronimo Stilton and his family lives in. Even some of the words are illistrated and it helps animate what the characters are saying even further. The story also provided a great mystery which Geronimo solved, as well as, a great second story after he solved the mystery. I highly recom ...more

Samuel Stnigysnout invited Geronimo to a creepy castle for a surprise. Geronimo solved the mystery that the coffin in the castle had nothing in it.

It says watch a FREE Geronimo Stilton episode. (Details inside) on the cover but there is no details any where in this book but this is a cute book
This book Is a book you can keep a say its so AMAZING. If you read half of it then I will tell you it was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

Good book for pupils who are adventurous specially on horror stories
This book is not a horror book
I was a bit scared!!!!!
Okay, okay. I have to admit a grudging admiration for these books. For one thing, my six-year old loves them. But they are also actually kind of funny--a cut above the usual pun humor in early chapter books. And the visuals and rich cast of characters give a lot of access to the stories. The Stingysnout family is pretty hilariously depicted. To be honest, I think the page my son pores over the most, though, is the one at the end picturing the covers of all the G. S. books!
I read this book in order to know what happens so I can carry on a conversation with son about it. This is the first book of this series that we picked up and I hope the earlier ones have the same sense of fun as this one. I like how some words are illustrated to help tell the mood of the story. My son will like all the little maps and character bios as well. This is a very well made book and I hope my son likes it as much I did.

I love books but Geronimo Stilton is one of my favorite books. In this story I liked Uncle Samuel Stingy-snout and his castle Penny Pincher Castle. This story is about a ceremony of Mr. Uncle Bigwig. Uncle Samuel was really a very big penny pincher that's why Geronimo did not like him even Thea ,even Trap and even Benjamin. This story was the best book of Geronimo Stilton and I am sure my friends will also like it

uncle Samuel S. Stingysnout has invited the Stingysnout and Stiltons over to penny pincher castle for a make believe funeral (that he made up because of a note he found that said he would have to share the castle with his family)..... how will this dark scary adventure end?
Another cute book. I made my middle DD get this book and she complained non-stop about getting it and then read it all the way home on the bus and read it all afternoon. She really enjoyed this book so much she asked for more money to buy 2 more books.

It is a blockbuster hit I believe. It is the most interesting story in Geronimo Stilton. It has very less pages like 100 but a very big and a interesting story.It is amazing,adventurous, entertaining and a happy story. It is a best story.

Simply superb and funny too....especially the description on planning the wedding of uncle gagrat n chintzina
Samuel S. Stingymouse house is very creepy and all they do is have no fun there.
