Who is Geronimo Stilton? That's me! I run a newspaper, but my true passion is writing tales of adventure. Here in New Mouse City, the capital of Mouse Island, my books are all bestsellers! My stories are full of fun - tastier than Swiss cheese and tangier than extra-sharp cheddar. They are whisker-licking-good stories, and that's a promise! Captured by cats! It's every rodent's worst nightmare. It all started when my cousin Trap convinced me to join him on a quest for a legendary island covered in silver. We set out by hot-air balloon. But before you could say "hot cheese on toast" we were attacked by a ship of pirate cats! They mouse-napped us and threatened to cook us for dinner. Would we escape with our lives ... or end up in the soup?
