    #1. This book is meant for elementary school aged children...adults who read this and all other children's books should probably remember who the target audience is while reading it and reviewing it. #2. It is a fantasy based story that is primarily meant to entertain the child reader. #3. This tiny book is a great little aid in the social studies department. We read it after reading a real book on Christopher Columbus and the discovery of America. Absolutely wonderful and memorable. #4. My child- #1.

    Ridiculous book. Geronimo and friends travel back in time to stop the Pirate Cats from going back in time and changing history. This story focuses on Christopher Columbus' 1492 voyage. Aside from the fact that I think there are plenty of people who WOULD like to change that bit of history, this story makes the whole voyage look really easy (other than the pirate cats' plots to cause mutiny, of course). And when they get to the Bahamas, they and the natives throw a dance party on the beach! Yeah r Ridiculous book.

And he announced it wasn't as good as the G.S. chapter books.

    Notions of time travel in this book are absolutely ridiculous. The heroes have to "catch up" to the cat pirates and get to medieval Spain a day later than them. What? Why not go back in time to before the cats get there and kick their asses? There's a lot of silliness that I suppose kids would like, but that doesn't really add to the plot. I was hoping that the graphic novels would improve on the books (as the Goosebumps graphics novels do), but it's the same mass-marketed, cheap thrills kind of Notions of time travel in this book are absolutely ridiculous.

I suppose they're worth adding to a collection because G.S. is insanely popular, but I may be losing a bit of my soul for doing so. Sigh.

    This presents a very shiny happy version of Columbus's first voyage to the Americas. Fans of Geronimo's books might like this, but I missed the cute humor you find in the chapter books. The art style is the same, but the font is more consistent here than in the chapter books. This book would be OK for fans of the series, or for very young kids looking for historical fiction.

    We've read most of the Geronimo Stilton Graphic Novels and our girls really like them. I thought they were very hard to read aloud at first, but I've gotten used to them. And I love that they include bits of history into the stories and we get to know a little more about life during those times. While the tale is not overly accurate, the small blurbs that accompany many of the pages are good sources of information. We enjoyed reading this book together and we will certainly read more of these st We've read most of the Geronimo Stilton Graphic Novels and our girls really like them.

    I think this book is really good, just like the fiction kinds, but this is in graphic novel. I recommend people to read this story, if they like Geronimo Stilton books, try reading the graphic novels. In graphic novels, there is always a mystery. Very, very, good stories!! :) There are the same characters in the graphic novel, same as the fiction books. So it won't be too confusing if you read Geronimo Stilton's fiction, not graphic novel. I hope you like it! Because i like it and so you should I think this book is really good, just like the fiction kinds, but this is in graphic novel.

    This book was pretty good. I liked that the topic was educational, so are all the other books in the series. I also thought the book had good vocabulary in it and could be a new challenge for some kids. Through out the book there are little sections with facts that relate to the topic, so since this one was about Christopher Columbus there are a lot about him and Spain. While the book is educational, it's also kind of funny. Some of the characters are named after different foods, and the sound w This book was pretty good.

    Geronimo Stilton was one of my favorite series when I was a child. I saw this graphic novel at the library, and couldn't resist the urge to pick it up. Even though it's meant for a much younger audience, I still enjoyed it. I found that it brought back a lot of nostalgia. It was a cute graphic novel. If I can find more, I might continue the series.

    It was great!.!.!. indians!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok sorry. It was about indians. It was like a comic book. My favorite part was when Trap whacked Geronimo's face on accident.

    Read aloud to Emma and Will in two sittings. This graphic novel wasn't high literature, but it fit perfectly with our study of Columbus. It's silly, but filled with little historical tidbits along the way. I'll be looking for more of these to read aloud.

    This book was so FUNNY! I couldn`t help laughing with my friend about what was going on in the graphic novel! It was so hard to put it down when I started reading it. I got to learn some history while laughing about all the funny things. This book was so FUNNY! I couldn`t help laughing with my friend about what was going on in the graphic novel!

    Read this in digital format, which I don't recommend, at least not on a regular computer monitor--the text is too tiny and the usual screen enlargement function doesn't work. Otherwise, it was a cute cartoonish, obviously somewhat distorted, version of Columbus' trip to America.

    Ugh, what other lies should we teach the children? Edison really invented the lightbulb? The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (CIVILIAN TARGETS, mind you) were justified? You should just go around altering the timestream willy-nilly? I need a freakin' drink... #JosephSwan

    I enjoyed the Geronimo Stilton books as a kid and had to read these. I obviously am older, but I still felt the joy I felt when I used to read them.

    As the first in the series, it’s pacing is surprisingly good! And the historical fallouts are there, unlike some later in the series.

    Having previously read a few Geronimo Stilton books with my son ( Lost Treasure of the Emerald Eye , The Curse of the Cheese Pyramid and The Haunted Castle ), we simply could not resist to check out this first comics album from Papercut. The basic premise for the series appears to be that three bad cat pirates have found a way to travel in time, and do so in order to change the course of history in favour of cats.

The basic premise for the series appears to be that three bad cat pirates have found a way to travel in time, and do so in order to change the course of history in favour of cats. Meanwhile, Geronimo, his sister Thea, their cousin Trap and their nephew Benjamin along with his friend Bugsy Wugsy (who was a new acquaintance for me) are drafted by Professor von Volt to foil the cats' plans by use of his own time machine, the Speedrat. In this first outing, the cat pirates attempt to throw a spanner in the works for Columbus' "discovery" of America (quotation marks mine), but Geronimo and his friends board the Santa Maria to find and stop them. The volume contains a bundle of small factual caption along with the ongoing narration, and while the presentation reveals this both to clearly be aimed at children and have a pedagogic intent, it all worked well enough in our reading. And while I am not likely to pick up another volume and read on my own, I certainly we will not mind if my son and I read another one together.

    I absolutely adored this book! I came across it as I was searching for a children's book that talked about Columbus and the discovery of America.

In "The Discovery of America," Geronimo and his mouse family travel back in time to stop the cats from interfering with the discovery of America. The mice have to go under cover as ship hands to gain access to the Santa Maria. They all played different roles as members of Columbus' crew, including chef and scribe. The story line exposes readers to many issues sailors run into at sea, such as running out of food and having to deal with horrible smells. In the end, Geronimo and the other mice are able to successfully stop the evil cats from interfering with Columbus' journey. I thought this book was particularly wonderful because it teaches readers the history of the discovery of America in an extremely entertaining way. The fact that it is a graphic novel just adds to the enjoyment of it. It was very fun to read and would be great for late second-fourth or even fifth graders. I can't wait to read more of the Geronimo Stilton series.
