STILTON RIDES INTO TROUBLE
By Ya-ya O'Cheddar
CACTUS CITY—The minute Geronimo Stilton walked into
town, it was pretty obvious to all the locals that this mouse
had a lot to learn about the Western way of life. Before long,
local resirodents decided to take advantage of him!
When Geronimo went into the saloon and asked the bartender
for a cup of Squeakytime Tea, all the other customers started
laughing at him. And when he accidentally stepped on the toe
of the biggest rodent in town, Mick Muscle Mouse, it looked
like Geronimo wasn’t going to get out of the place alive.
Somehow, he did.
But then he got into trouble with Wicked Whiskers, the vicious
gunmouse who controls Cactus City. Whiskers gave Geronimo
a challenge that may be the last one Geronimo ever faces.
That challenge is the reason why the four Stiltons are starting
a three-day ride across the desert—on horseback—to
Whiskers’ ranch. If Geronimo passes the test, he can
free Cactus City from the clutches of an evil rodent. But
if he fails…Well, it’s best not to think about
that. The Rodent’s Gazette needs its editor just as
much as Cactus City needs to get rid of Whiskers. So, let’s
just hope that Whiskers’ challenge is a bet Geronimo
can win. If not, there are sad days ahead for lots of rodents
