Thea Stilton and the Dragon's Code: Geronimo Stilton Special Edition

We all know Geronimo's sister, Thea, who (unlike her brother) is up for any wild adventure any time. Thea works as a journalist at Geronimo's newspaper. One evening, when she arrives home, the mailmouse hands over a special delivery. It is an invitation to teach a class in adventure journalism at the Mouseford Academy. Thea is honored and thrilled to teach at the school she attended as a young mouseling.

As anyone knows, the only way to get to the exclusive school is by sea. Thea has her own sailboat, so she packs up and sails off. She is shocked when a hydroplane almost runs right into her boat. When she reaches the dock, she meets the captain and isn't shy about giving him a piece of her mind. Five of the Mouseford students --- Nicky, Colette, Pamela, Paulina and Violet --- applaud her for it. She likes them immediately.

Thea meets her old headmaster, which makes her feel at home. But some things appear ominous. Strangely, a few of the other characters around the school seem familiar to Thea. And when she and her students wander into a storeroom by mistake, they find a huge carved statue --- and a very angry handymouse who suggests they shouldn't be peeking at what isn't their business. Not to mention that Thea has felt like some unseen person is watching her ever since she arrived. What in the world could be going on?

Luckily, readers have clues on many pages to help them solve the mystery. Since it's a Geronimo Stilton book, we also learn many snippets of interesting information about sailing, perfume, sealing wax, thunderstorms, secret codes, and much more.
