Review

Valley of the Giant Skeletons, Book 32

Trap brings Geronimo a fascinating old map of Mongolia's Gobi Desert, filled with creepy names such as Bones Lake and Mystery Mountains. Trap found the ancient treasure map in the trunk of Wandering Wally, their ancestor. When the cousins look in the trunk, they come across equipment Wally used on his many adventures, plus his diary, which is crammed with daring tales. In fact, Uncle Wally was searching for the treasure spot marked on the Mongolian treasure map when he died. Geronimo feels that, by searching for the treasure, they will honor Uncle Wally's memory (but Trap says he's in it for the money).

Thea and Benjamin join Trap and Geronimo on their trip. During the plane rides, Geronimo is a bit distracted by a beautiful blonde mouse who appears to be headed in the same direction. Soon, Geronimo finds out that she is Karina von Fossilsnout, a museum director. He can't help but confide in her about their search. But when Geronimo calls his friend Petunia, she informs him that Dr. von Fossilsnout hates to travel. The next day, Dr. von Fossilsnout is nowhere to be found. Can this ominous turn of events spell disaster for their treasure hunt?

VALLEY OF THE GIANT SKELETONS is another enjoyable Geronimo Stilton adventure, with the series' trademark humor and fur-raising situations (like being lost in the desert without a guide, food, water or car! Yikes!). In addition, the book is packed with fascinating facts about the Orient Express, Mongolia and dinosaurs. And, as always, Geronimo revels in meeting new friends and being with his family.
