I'm not going to remind you of how we last left our heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest, as they awaited intiation into the mysterious Terces Society, or the ongoing fight against the evil Dr. At the end of the book, it seems our young detectives are only starting a promising career in thwarting bad guys and uncovering deep, dark secrets.


Maeve has a very bad end to her honeymoon as things come to light about Severus that astound her.
It made me think of Lemony Snicket (You can find my review of the first book of A Series of Unfortunate Events here) because of the sarcasm and the fact that the author keeps begging you to stop reading the book.
The villains kidnapped children with special abilities and it is implied that they all died. Although the main plot is complete, the reader is left with many questions that I can only conclude will be answered in the following books.
Two of the pretty, popular girls laugh at her behind her back about her ears (but not out of her earshot). As the story progresses, you learn that he was investigating alchemy and may have discovered the secret to eternal youth. Mauvais calls on Thoth, also known as Hermes, also known as Mercury as they begin the procedure on Benjamin. You think he is actually going to do it, when the owner appears and tells them that the tiger is harmless.

There is an uncomfirmed rumor that he’s really Edie Bilmann, but that name means nothing to me and it might be a red herring. The children rescue one boy who is about to have his bran fluid sucked out of him (to be used a an elixir for eternal youth). Or what if they were lying in the kitchen in a pool of blood breathing their last breaths and she could have been there to hear their dying wishes but she wasn’t? His kitchen was destroyed by a very brief, intense fire, leaving some of his teeth and a strong sulfur smell. It made me think of Lemony Snicket because he begs you to stop reading, and it’s also full of tragic events.
He is highly trained in the languages and customs of the fantasy lands—parallel worlds that exist in the folklore of nations across the globe. Brave enough to try to get to solve a local magician’s mysterious death all by herself. There are references to drinking monkey blood, ritual sacrifice, and being burned to death. In order to make their hamburgers, McDonald’s raised and slaughtered so many cows that they became diseased and land was destroyed.


In this story, the Land of Erin is in danger of being lost forever and Thea Stilton must find out why. He censors out the real names and locations involved in his story, even going as far as replacing a whole chapter with strings of Xes. The villains are clearly evil, and the children do the right thing by choosing to save a classmate rather than save themselves. Cass had good motives (to prompt authorities to pursue the real villains, but do you think it was a good idea? The adventurous mice encounter several creatures known from Irish legend, including goblins, pixies, banshees, fairies, and leprechauns. And it’s a good thing for Cass, because Max-Ernest has a streak of common sense in him that she lacks, and things quickly become too dangerous for one little girl to handle on her own. Mauvais, appears to drink blood and eat a heart (presumably part of the alchemy of staying young).
While they are searching for a missing friend, they learn that the land itself is in peril! Full-color, full-page illustrations and smaller cartoons dropped into the text will appeal to younger readers. One of the main characters, Max-Ernest, has parents who have been fighting since the day he was born. The mouselets are ready to help.On their journey, they encounter fairies, pixies, and other magical creatures -- some helpful, but some out to trick them! Examples include the word look, which is drawn with eyeballs on it, and sparkling, which has tiny stars around it.
The house is split down the middle in style, and neither parents will speak to the other parent or step over the line into the other’s part of the house. The "Thea Stilton" books are part of the popular "Geronimo Stilton" series that has been published in Italy since 2000. Although the parents are clearly comic relief in the book, their behavior has dramatically affected their son and at the end of the book, the parents decide to get a divorce and not live in the same house any more. Each book is written as an autobiographical recounting of adventures that take place around the world, often involving mysteries. The high level of kid-appeal overcomes the story's technical problems, such as point-of-view issues, characters and clues left hanging, and a cast that seems larger than it needs to be for the story told.
