Geronimo Stilton, fraidy-mouse extraordinaire, is traveling to the Wild West! Geronimo is the editor of the local newspaper. He is a calm mouse. He is a mouse who enjoys sitting at home, listening to classical music and drinking a nice cup of hot cheddar cheese tea.

Geronimo learns to rope and ride in the Wild West and he stands up to the town bullies. In the end ... well you have to read the book to find that out.

I enjoyed reading this Geronimo Stilton book as it addressed Native American tribe

I think this book was adventurous because he always used to live in rat city and when Geronimo Stilton when to the wild wild west he was not adapted to that life so they had to get adapted so they were going to be there for a few months and when they when back to rat city they miss the wild wild west because they were already adapted to the city is it was uncountable in rat city because there was no horses, different cloth and different houses and a different way of life

I really saw a big improvement from Geronimo's life. When he visited the Wild West, he was still a fraidy mouse. Later on, he missed traveling to the Wild West and asked his family to join him. Of course his family will say yes because they LOOOVEEE traveling!!! Geronimo improve and I'm really happy about it :)

I loved the adventure part of the book the most.
The book that I read was The Wild Wild West by Geronimo Stilton. This book was originally published in 2005.

Geronimo and his family are crossing the Arizona desert when they find a Wild West town called Cactus City. They gear up, saddle up, and gallop until they find rooms for rent. Geronimo goes into the saloon, and before you can say "cheese," big rough Mick Muscle tries to pick a fight with him. Geronimo keeps narrowly avoiding a fight with him, but finally Mick challenges Geronimo to a gunfi

One of the better Geronimo Stilton books.

This one takes place in Cactus City, a wild west town complete with bad guys and a waterway that's been dammed.

The background info--wild west vocabulary, information on horseshoes, western Indian groups, a basic intro into the Homestead Act--all very good.A recipe for black bean soup that we plan to try. The fact that water issues were huge in old west towns is not brought up, though it is big in the story, was disappointing.

Most disappointing parts:

I think this book is very interesting. The only thing felt that wasn't good was its ending, its ending was: It was a dream! I never liked that kind of ending. The book was about Geronimo went to wild west and have an epic adventure! It also has a glossery at tthe end of the story about the tools they used in the wild west. In this book geronimo into a lot of trouble. the most eciting one was that he was trying to calm an ox. At last he found out that there was a pin in its skin. So he pulled the ...more

Don't ask. I know what you're thinking. What the heck is Danya thinking reading a book? About a mouse? Well actually, this book is kind of interesting. Basically, this book is trying to teach people that it doesn't matter what size you are, or what you do for a living. Whether you black, white, Hispanic, blue, yellow, tall, short, an alien or a mouse in this case, sometimes you think you can't do something, but in the end, you end up doing 100x better than what you thought you would do. Does tha ...more

I think that the book was good because first he didnt like the town and at the end he fought a person and then liked the town and would like to come back again . Oh and I forgot that Geronimo Stilton was almost attack by a bull but the thing was that the bull had a thorn at the bottom of his leg. And the book was called Geronimo Stilton the wild west by Geronimo Stilton.
Chiara  Tomlinson!

Rat-munching rattlesnakes, was I excited! I was on a wagon train to the wild, wild West. But before you could say "hi-ho, cowboy," I found myself in a showdown with the wickedest rat in all of Cactus City. All I wanted was to ride off into the sunset with the wind in my whiskers ... but the way things were going, I'd be lucky to escape with my tail!...

Geronimo and his family are in AZ and they are in the desert and they are thirsty. Water is in short supply. They find out why and encounter many characters along the way. Including, Bessie a very large, angry bull, that Geronimo has to tame.

It was a pretty good book. But it had an annoying ending that just had to ruin most of the excitement of the story.
