The Mystery in Venice, Book 48
Geronimo Stilton always pursues a challenge. He enjoys it, welcomes it, does whatever is necessary to make it so. And just like any red-blooded mouse, he also finds a way to include a healthy social life into his adventures. So when his delightful crush, Miss Petunia Pretty Paws, gives him a crystal boat as a gift, he accepts it --- even though it’s hideous. However, inside is a strange little piece of paper with a mysterious message on it. Asking for help, that message launches a search that takes Geronimo to Venice, where he has to do whatever he can to help the stranger out...while also enjoying the beautiful Italian view.
THE MYSTERY IN VENICE is filled with new characters and an inside look at the age-old beauty and mysteries of the island of Venice in Italy. There’s so much to learn about the cultural and artistic history of Venice, and Geronimo wastes little time finding connections between these amazing historical finds and the mystery at hand. This is an exciting and thoughtful story about crystal statues, food, art, and the timeless nature of love.
