of the Emerald
residents of Mouse Island have whispered about the legendary
treasure of the Emerald Eye. Does the Emerald Eye really exist?
Why has it remained hidden all these years? These questions
have been answered, thanks to ace reporters Geronimo and Thea
started when I discovered an old map at a flea market,"
says Thea. "As soon as I saw that X marked next
to the words 'Emerald Eye,' I told my brother we had to go
find the treasure! What an opportunity! But of course, he
didn't want to go."
"It's true," Geronimo laughs. "I didn't believe
in the Emerald Eye, but Thea was sure it would be worth it.
And saying no to my sister is like telling a mouse not to
crave cheese. It just doesn't do any good."
few days later, Thea, Geronimo, and their cousin Trap set
sail. Their month-long journey was full of surprises
including finding Geronimo's favorite nephew, Benjamin, stowed
away onboard. And then there was the hurricane that tossed
their ship, the Lucky Lady, around the ocean like a
toy ship in a bathtub.
mice made it through the storm relying on survival skills
they didn't know they had like making a raft out of
an old trunk with Geronimo's silk pajamas as the sail! But
many dangers awaited the Stiltons once they reached the island
- quicksand, bee swarms, and even booby traps! But uncovering
the true secret of the Emerald Eye was worth it, says Benjamin
Stilton: "The Emerald Eye is the most beautiful treasure
I've ever seen!"
Geronimo, when asked if he would do it again, he shrugged
and said, "I might... but not right now! Not even next
week. It's good to be home safe and sound in my cozy mouse
hole with my mega huge fridge. I think Thea, Trap, and Benjamin
agree with me on that!"
