This is my little girl Jess' own review (with some input from Mom on spelling and grammar). Jess is 9.

I really like the Thea Stilton books. They are really interesting and fun to read. I decided to go on to this book 'cause I couldn't find Thea Stilton And The Dragon's Code. D: So in this book the main characters are the Thea Sisters which is a team of mouselets consisting of Nicky, Colette, Violet, Paulina, and Pamela. Nicky is from Australia and she's claustrophobic (meaning that she hates tig

Le premier livre que je lis dans cette série, avec ma fille. L'histoire était bien correcte (sans plus), mais ce qui m'a le plus impressionné, c'est la mise en page stylisée qui suscite la curiosité de l'enfant, les encadrés éducatifs, les résumés insérés ici et là pour aider les petits à ne pas perdre le fil, bref, c'est un livre très bien conçu, et je comprends pourquoi ça a eu un tel succès.

Je vais probablement acheter les autres. J'ai l'impression que ma fille de 4 ans a pas compris grand-ch

It was awesome and cool
For those familiar with the Geronimo Stilton books, you might recognize that Thea is Geronimo's sister who teaches at Mouseford Academy. The Thea Sisters are five of her students who solve mysteries, this one being why sheep are getting sick on Nicky's grandmother's farm in Australia. (Drat that ruthless Mortimer MacCardigan!) Like other books in the series, it features cartoon illustrations and multi-colored graphics and different fonts sprinkled throughout the text, all designed to appeal to b ...more

The second book in the Thea Stilton series, this book centers around the Thea Sisters traveling to Australia to help Nicky solve the mystery as to why one of the flocks of sheep is very sick while the other two are fine. Nicky being very concerned has decided to leave school, but the other girls will not let her leave on her own as they know that she will need the help of all of the girls in order to solve the mystery. The headmaster allows them to leave even though this does not normally happen ...more

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
We've been reading a lot of Geronimo Stilton stories and we like them. They usually offer a little bit of historical or factual information about a place or time in history as well as a fun and exciting story. Now, we've discovered the Thea Stilton series as well, and it looks like we'll be busy with the Stilton family for quite awhile.

This is an interesting story about life in the remote regions of Australia, where ranches are so big and spread out that they are called stations. And children h
FABUMOUSE story! I enjoyed this book, was well written and I enjoyed the tidbits of information about Australia that was offered to the reader. I also liked the magnifying glass that pops up at times, enabling the readers to help solve the mystery along with the Thea Sisters in the book:) It was full of a lot of really interesting facts about Australia and things that I didn't know. I think that this is a good book for reading before bed and I think that you should try it too!
Pour Marianne
Premier livre à chapitres pour Marianne, parce que papa était tanné de lire des albums. Même si on n'est pas sûrs qu'elle a très bien compris l'histoire, elle était toujours super enthousiaste de lire le livre, et elle nous parlait de "MacCardigan" entre deux séances de lecture. Elle aimait nommer les personnages en les voyant. Colette et Violette sont ses préférées. Papa va continuer de lire la série, il a été impressionné par la mise en page, les illustrations, etc.

Have you read Geronimo Stilton? Did you know that Geronimo has a sister named Thea Stilton? These are two great book series and everyone in my third grade class loves them. But which series is better? There is only one way to find out...a good old book fight! Watch this video to see who will win!

Aagh! Normally I love the Thea Stilton stories, and read them aloud to my 6yo son. I thought, yay, one set here in Australia. But it is driving me crazy. I have to translate all the Americanisations back into Australian. We do not have ranches, we have stations (at least that is explained later in a box), but I'm stumped as to what we'd call a prairie. I've certainly never seen one here. A paddock probably. And then they drive 250 miles from Sydney to a station. Hmmm. 250 miles is what, 400 ish ...more

I thought the book was really good. It was good because the four friends tried to help the other friend which just led them to another mystery. It was just cool because it had an unexpected twist.

This book was amazing. I mainly like Nicky and Colette. They found who jacked up the sheep i would tell you but you know spoilers. I will tell anyway it was the other ranch owner his son wanted to tell but he did not want him too. It is the third book in the series. I expected to see more of Nicky's family because they are in australia. But in "Mystery in Paris" you only see Colette's cousin. But in "Big trouble in the big apple" You see all of Pamela's family. I will look into this so stay tune ...more
cool and full of adventure.

This is the first Thea Stilton book. (Not the first one I every read, no!) Nicky`s farm has sheep on it. But the no good rat, Mortimer MacCardigan has put lead in the dirt of the grass that the sheep eat! That means that the sheep get sick because lead is poisonous. So, Nicky, Pamela, Paulina, Colette, and Violet have to find Nicky`s grandmother, Naya`s elders. When they find them, the elders say, 'You have had the cure all along. It is in the seeds in that locket of your`s.'

How do read this book

This story brings the Thea sisters to the continent of Australia. There, they visit Nicky's grandma and find out that the sheep they've been raising were losing their wool. Nicky's family made a living made clothes out of this wool and sold them. So they went on a journey to find out how to save the sheep. Eventually, they found out their rival sheepherder was poisoning the sheep. This made Nicky mad. But at the end, they come to terms and become friends.
One of the best Thea Stilton adventures of the pack. Inspiring, exuberant, humorous, and educational (making it all worth the while), Mountain of Fire definitely packs up a story people will come back to. I remember when my classmates were mowing up all the Geronimo Stilton books in sight at our library, so it's not just me that used to enjoy them. But anyway, consider this whether you've gotten a taste of Thea/Geronimo or not.
The problem is that Nicky's sheep in Australia was losing it's wool. I like the book because it is very interesting to read what i like about the book is the different kinds of fonts and colors. When I open the book the first thing I saw is the colorful pictures. When I was skimming the book I saw that the last page have a map. I really recommend this book to the people who likes to read adventure books.
