Who is Geronimo Stilton? That's me! I run a newspaper, but my true passion is writing tales of adventure. Here in New Mouse City, the capital of Mouse Island, my books are all bestsellers! My stories are full of fun - tastier than Swiss cheese and tangier than extra-sharp cheddar. They are whisker-licking-good stories, and that's a promise! My grandfather, William Shortpaws, was back at 'The Rodent's Gazette', and he was determined to drive me up a clock! He wanted to publish a guide book to Ratzikistan, the coldest, darkest, most remote spot on all of Mouse Island. And he wanted ME to write it! So he packed up his cheese-colored camper, and we were on our way. But as you know, dear reader, I hate travelling!
