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! Blue skies, sandy beaches ... I was dreaming of a nice, quiet vacation in the sun. I needed to get away from the rat race for a while. And without Thea and Trap to drag me on some crazy adventure, I'd be able to relax for once. But instead of a beautiful seaside resort, I found myself staying at a fleabag hotel that was falling down around my ears! Oh, would I ever be able to enjoy my vacation?
