Help the Thea sister and read it!!!
Now the ever-expanding Geronimo Stilton universe introduces five young female mice clad in such colorful way, wearing unique fashion from their own homelands around the world with their lovely, big-eared heads covered in such luxurious manes of varying length, color, and style, too.
Beautiful, gracefully slim, and in their late teens (to maybe early 20s, like real-life university students), the five anthropomorphic girls are featured in their own books under the name of their mentor, Thea Stilton, who happens to be the daredevil sister of Geronimo Stilton, another mouse hero for kids from Italy.
Attending an elite boarding school on the paradise-like Whale Island, the furry heroines are superrich enough to leave at the drop of a hat to go on extraordinary adventures/vacations all over the whole globe (and even into the fantastic worlds to boot!) and not even miss a single class at the prestigious Mouseford Academy. None of them ever hold an after-school job to fund such extravagant escapades - and they even send very expensive exotic gifts to their favorite teacher at the very beginning of their stories, too. (Never mind that one of the young mouselets came from a family running a little pizzeria to support SEVERAL half-grown siblings under one roof! Then again, she has bought herself an Italian ice cream cone AS BIG AS HER HEAD right before a ballet lesson in one story. ^_~ )
Like wacky old Scooby Doo cartoons, the girls solve confusing riddles, foil bad guys, and discover hidden treasures. Such clever little stories are full of mystery, suspense, history, and lots of fun and glamour as well as dewy-eyed young romance and great messages about true friendship. :)
The Thea Sisters books are also gorgeously illustrated and colored (some scenes are even SPECTACULAR as they depict famous landmarks like Greek ruins, Scottish castles, and a shimmering New York City skyline bathed in golden sunset.) Like Geronimo Stilton books, these books are very educational (there's plenty of accompanying maps/facts/history to teach kids about lands that our favorite cheese-loving girlfriends are visiting) and the easy-to-read text is also playfully sprinkled with colored special effects to make the stories more eye-catching for the young readers.
Thea Stilton herself acts as a good "den mother" as well as an interested audience for the five courageous kids, though she has sometimes behaved disdainfully toward her older brother, Geronimo Stilton in his own books.
Very enjoyable Barbiesque fantasy for preteen girls as well as furry fans (like myself) to escape into. :)
