The book that I finished reading is called The Kingdom of Fantasy by Geronimo Stilton. it is a about the main character, Geronimo Stilton, being visited by the Dragon of the Rainbow, and being told that he needs to travel to the Kingdom of Fantasy to retrieve the 32 Crystal Keys. The keys will lead him to this door where he has to open it, and travel down this long hallway to this fountain, where he will find the 7 jewelled hearts. He will have to find one and bring it back to the Queen of the ...more

I bought this for one of my students, so I thought I'd have the liberty to tuck my paws in it first. What it gave me was a headache. And they thought that colouring and beautifying WORDS would make a storyline more interesting. Nooo. Sure, people are getting more visual nowadays, and kids think the beautifuler the graphics, the better the quality.

I have to say that the prettier the fonts, the less solid the plot. This one reads like a magazine - bland, with no intriguing plot, but random snippet

I liked this book best (x10 times). The colour of the kingdoms were those of the rainbow. And the trolls were the stinkiest creatures I'd ever read, and they had root canals and cavities.They didn't even wash themselves for a millennium. They only washed themselves in the smell pool every single day! Ugh!

I really like this book (my brother actually recommended this to me) because it has some of my favorite genres on it, it has fantasy, and adventure which I like the most on books. But this book is different, it has these secret codes, fantasian language. Kingdom of the Witches, Trolls, Dragons, Gnomes, Fairies, Giants, and Mermaids. So basically the story is about Geronimo having a bad day and the actual date is June 21 which in their time is a magical day. So going back, Geronimo is having a ve ...more

Ava - 7 year old review:

What is this story about?

When Geronimo Silton was looking at a music box, he was falling asleep. In his dreams, he finds a golden key and uses it on a golden door at the top of a golden stairs.

Geronimo Stilton goes on an adventure to save the Queen Fairy in the Kingdom of Pixies.

What was your favorite part of the book?

When Geronimo Stilton made many, many copies of the book, Kingdom of Fantasy.

Yeah my little brother was half asleep while we were working on his project. I ended up telling him to go to sleep and I basically did the project. I hope his teacher doesn't notice my attempt to sound like a 5th grader.

I think Geronimo Stilton is going to many different types or kind of adventures. At last he saved the queen at the fairy kingdom. He saw strange things at different kingdom.

GeronimoStilton looks like a adventurer with a frog always with him , visiting and passing through kingdom by kingdom.

One day I was bored so I took this book from my little sister. I was surprised because it actually wasn't a bad book. That's just it though. The plot and stuff wasn't bad at all (but I've seen it before) and I thought the maps were cool, but the colored words were very distracting. Sometimes they were even hard to read. It is not even one of the best Geronimo Stilton books I've forced myself to read. Althought it is quite creative.
I'd recommend it to anyone who really really REALLY likes pictur

My favourite character was Boils. He is a chameleon and I like the colours he can change. My favourite parts are when Boils changes colours.

My 4-year old twins love these books :)
In this new Geronimo series Geronimo travels through seven fantasy kingdoms in search of the Queen of the fairies, who needs his help. The format is like other Geronimo books; color pictures and colorful fonts of different sizes. Each Kingdom includes a map and a page with all the important information about it. A music box that came to Geronimo on the tail of a shooting star helps him enter each kingdom and provides something to aid his passing through that kingdom. Scribblehopper, a frog, is h ...more

First off, this book can stand alone and doesn't need to be read with the other books in the Geronimo Stilton series. In this book, Geronimo will need to travel through six Kingdoms (Witches, Trolls, Dragons, Gnomes, Fairies, Giants, and Mermaids) to save Blossom the Fairy Queen. Geronimo is aided in his quest by a scribe named Scribblehopper and the help of friends he finds along the way. I really liked this book. There are some very detailed maps included for each of the Kingdoms and nice bits ...more

This series are my personal favorites, I must say. I can't tell if it's because I grew up with them or because they actually are great books, I mean they are. These Geronimo Stilton books are pretty unique, as a kid me and my friends always talked about them and they always were our favorites. If I had to bring any book to any place, I would bring this one, of course. In my opinion it's a book that never gets old and brings out the best of you. The writing and the details of the book are very ap ...more

When I was in grade 3 I hated reading, I thought of the idea as boring and hurting my brain. 1 day a very good friend of myn told me to read this book and said if I don't like it, she won't recommend me anymore books. I read it and instantly fell in love with reading now thinking of it as s key, that opens up your heart, brain, and imagination. After this I read as many Geronimo Stilton books as I could. This book bought me into the love of reading and the dream of being an author. This book lea ...more

This book is awesome because of the fantasy drama it also makes me want to go in that fantasy world that Geromino's in.I think that Geromino stilton is very lucky in being in the fantasy world he is in because he gets to do so many adventure stuff there.Geromino is really good at doing the stuff that the he is doing in the Fantasy Kingdon because since he is a scardy cat he can get more and more braver of what he is doing in the Fantasy Kingdom because all the stuff he is doing is really brave.W ...more

Both of my older sons love the Geronimo Stilton series of books. My 1st grader just got done reading this out loud to me and he was so proud of himself for reading a 314 page chapter book. I love the pictures, maps, legends and the colorful fonts that really keep my kids' attention when they read. So I am giving it a 5 star because my son loved it and thought it was awesome.

I wasn't quite as interested with the story and I actually lost focus listening to it more than my son did who was reading

Well, this one is better than the previous books that I read on this series.

Which I have not read, based on sequence. I think I read the 6th book first. Geronimo Stilton is going to the Kingdom of Fantasy! He faces the gnomes, trolls, witches, werewolves, pirates.. well, you get the gist. Everything that we have ever imagined exist in the fantasy world is in this book.

His mission is to save the Queen of Fairies.

I read this book at the request of my daughter for her "book club". I like the Geronimo Stilton series as a whole. This book was cute becausse the intrepid mouse ventured through a land involving almost every mythical creature. It is a cute book for beginning readers. Very enjoyable for a quick read.

I had never read this book as a child, which seems like a shame to me now. Eventhough I am not a little child anymore, I really did enjoy this book and I would recommend it to children as well as anyone looking for a book to read to a child ;)

This was the average rating between the kids and I. I would not read this aloud again... It was painful 😂 This is much better for a early reader to read on their own and NOT for a read-aloud.

Cute. There were a lot of words in color and different fonts. I wonder if this makes it easier or harder for young readers to enjoy. There are many pictures, with maps, diagrams, info pages, and puzzles.
The overall story was good. There were very few details, and things happened at a breakneck pace. I would have been lost without the pictures to rely on. I expect a slower reader will appreciate the few words.

Good for someone young, but I won't read more.
