Prompt 2- FAVOURITE
My 7 year old daughter has graduated from smaller books to the novel format and we are elated by this progression. We were anxious wondering if she had the diligence to plow through a novel with individual chapters. Thankfully the transition has been pretty smooth.
Hence this is our response to Day 2 prompt: Favourite
TITLE: Geronimo Stilton: The hunt for the Curious Cheese (special edition)
My Daughter: Geronimo with his super funny friend Hercule uncovers the problems with spoilt cheese which is making everyone ill in their city. Very exciting and fun. Story makes me laugh.
Me: I honestly like this series, I think this is a worthy contender to be the Hardy boys or Nancy Drew of this generation. The aforementioned books although robust in pith and pace now are pretty moth-eaten for the times we live in; think harbors, piers, evening balls....
Enter this series with tongue firmly in cheek, puns galore, contemporary situations like malls, corporate parties, super chef contests etc. It is so very new-fangled in both its tenor and lexicon that the kids would find it relevant and easily identifiable.
Besides the main character is Geronimo a rat with charm, sass, a quick wit and an insatiable appetite for dairy esp. cheese and wrangles himself out of situations in his inimitable style. There is some seriously smart and cool typography here, chapters end with a twist, there are jokes / riddles at the end, small poster size page illustrations find their way. Whew it’s one hell of an exciting and clever ride. Well deserved favourite this one sure is.
Prepping for the next prompt now.
