School Library Journal - 03/01/2020 Gr 2–5—Geronimo Stilton is back—and in a brand-new format. Angleberger, best known for his "Origami Yoda" series, adapts the escapades about the renowned rat reporter into a graphic novel. A horrible stench has invaded New Mouse City, and citizens are leaving in droves. So Geronimo and his old pal private detective Hercule Poirat venture into the smelly sewers of Mouse Island, where they discover a secret society of rats plotting to take over the world. As in the original prose books, emphasized words are set in contrasting, often dramatic typefaces, and the book is filled with rodent-related puns and references to cheese. But Angleberger has put his own stamp on the long-running series. Unlike the sleek, clean-lined cartoons of previous iterations, his artwork is charmingly childlike, with bold outlines and simple, bright backgrounds. The book is filled with laugh-out-loud situations, endearing characters, ridiculous chase scenes, and madcap action. Amid all the fun, readers will find a lesson on the importance of reducing waste and recycling. VERDICT Great galloping Gorgonzola! Angleberger has done it again. Graphic novel lovers, reluctant readers, and fans of Geronimo Stilton will be spellbound by this hilarious tale.—Kelley Gile, Cheshire Public Library, CT - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 06/01/2020 Geronimo Stilton is back with an all-new look and all-new . . . stink? New Mouse City stinks, and residents are leaving to escape the overwhelming stench! With everyone gone, Geronimo, publisher of The Rodent’s Gazette, decides to put on his investigator hat and do some sleuthing to see what could be the source of the horrendous smell. When he unexpectedly runs into his pal Hercule, they decide to venture into the sewers to solve the mystery. Along the way, they meet the sewer rats and their queen, Trashfur Sparkles XIII, who is up to very nefarious work. Will they be able to figure out the mystery of the stink and escape from the queen’s clutches? Angleberger's cartoonish, bubbly artwork is brightly colored with large, precise lettering, perfect for emerging readers. Angleberger also incorporates a lot of nontraditional paneling styles, which, in one instance, literally lead readers along as our heroes traipse through the dreaded sewers. Perfect for fans of mysteries with a lot of fun high jinks. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
