The Christmas Toy Factory
By Geronimo Stilton
Hi! Do you look forward to presents on Christmas morning? Well, Geronimo Stilton does!
It all started with Geronimo’s grandfather. He was the head of the Rodent Gazette. Everyone feared him. And he kept banging into Geronimo’s office telling him to work, work, work! But Geronimo Stilton was afraid of his grandfather, so of course he worked! But it was Christmas Eve and he wasn’t able to spend the day with his family.
They all waited for him for Christmas dinner, but he didn’t come; he said no to coming to the big Christmas party at the Rodent Gazette (the place where he worked, for he was a writer for a newspaper); and he wasn’t able to go to his favorite nephew’s Christmas play. They were all really sad and gloomy that he couldn’t make it, but his grandfather had scared him into doing all that.
That night, an elf flew into his window. It said that he was needed at Santa’s workshop. Geronimo Stilton hesitantly got into the sled and they did all sorts of loop-de-loops and twirls and all sorts of cool tricks. Now, if you’ve read any other Geronimo Stilton books then you know that he gets seasick, carsick, and airsick very easily, so of course he felt sick to his stomach.
When he arrived at the North Pole, he noticed Santa was covered in red spots. He had the measles! Then, he asked “Geronimo, will you help me deliver my Christmas presents?”
Will Geronimo say yes and save Christmas? Or will he say no because his fear of his grandfather is so strong that he refuses and goes back to his home? As I always say, read the book to find out!
I recommend this book to readers who have read other books like this one. It would probably help if you’ve read other Geronimo Stilton books before this one. But any one is a good place to start. If this is your first one, then it would be a really good one! Especially for Christmas Eve!
P.S. The author of this book’s real name is Elisabetta Dami.
A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:
“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor):
There were no scary parts in this book.
“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor):
Zero. None. Nada.
I give this book 4 wands.
It was a little shorter than I usually like, but still a really good book!
