GERONIMO STILTON IS VICTIM OF TRAVEL AGENCY SWINDLE
By Ratella Redfur
NEW MOUSE CITY—When Geronimo Stilton told his cousin
Trap that he wanted to find a good four-star travel agency
to plan his next vacation, he never expected that his very
own cousin would set him up with a con artist! But according
to Geronimo, that’s exactly what happened.
The travel agency is called Trust Me, You’ll Like It!
and is owned by Rhett Ratfink, an old friend of Trap’s
and a well-known New Mouse City con-mouse. “We used
to play dominoes together back in the day,” said Trap.
“That little rodent cheated on just about every game.
Oh, he was a lot of fun. I miss those days.”
Almost immediately after Geronimo signed up with Trust Me,
You’ll Like It!, he started to have second thoughts.
That’s because first, the agency booked him a room at
a cockroach–infested place called the Rathole Hotel
on San Shabby Fur Island. Then, they booked his round-trip
flight on an airline called Last Gasp Airways. But Geronimo’s
fur really stood on end when he got a bill for an enormouse
amount of money.
“I don’t know what happened. I told Trap I wanted
a four-star hotel,” squeaked Geronimo. It turns out
that Trust Me, You’ll Like It! is in fact, a four-star
agency—four stars out of fifty!
When asked whether he would ever use the Trust Me, You’ll
Like It! agency, Trap Stilton said, “Are you crazy?
I wouldn’t trust that mouse with my money or my life!
That’s why I thought Geronimo should try it out first.”
