Spacemice bk 1. Scholastic, 2014. ISBN 9780545646505.
Recommended for 7-9 years of age. Geronimo Stiltonix's new frontier is space, he's a science fiction writer and captain of the spaceship Mouse Star 1 through the galaxy. Along for the ride are his friends and family Trap, Benjamin and his friend Bugsy Wugsy. His robot assistants add to the fun, the embarrassment of Assistatrix throwing him into the Wash-A-Mouse and antics on the flight deck. Unfortunately, his spacecraft is in urgent need of repair, the powerful batteries are about to explode and need an extremely rare element tetrastellium to power them. Alien encounters, Grandfather William's interference, a giant pink blob on the loose all make this another exciting adventure.
This popular series is a great for helping the young reader's confidence with all the expected font styles, sizes and colours, cheesy puns, colourful cartoon illustrations, maps, diagrams and character bios.
