From the Desk of
Dear Mouse Friends,
Have you ever made a mistake? I mean, a really big mistake?
Well, I hate to say it, but I may have just made the biggest
mistake of my newsmouse career. Her name is Pinky Pick and
she’s my new assistant. My secretary Mousella MacMouser
warned me. She told me that I should interview Pinky before
I let her sign a contract. Did I listen to her? Noooooo. And
now I am stuck with a bossy, meddling mouse for an assistant!
I was expecting a grown-up with real newspaper experience,
not a little fourteen-year-old mouselet. The minute she walked
into my office, I nearly choked on my cheese! She was wearing
a large yellow t-shirt covered with Swiss cheese holes, bright
green leggings, and shocking pink high-top sneakers with see-through
platform soles. The soles were filled with water and pink
plastic fish. Her outfit was so bright I actually needed sunglasses.
As if that wasn’t enough to make my head spin faster
than the Screamin’ Rat Roller Coaster at the amousement
park, she’s also loud and pushy. Before she even finished
a day of work, Pinky had the nerve to ask for all kinds of
things. Here’s a list of her (completely unreasonable)
#1 A mega-huge bonus each year
#2 Three months of paid vacation
#3 All expenses paid, including her clothes
#4 A raise
Cheese nibblets! This really rubbed my fur the wrong way.
Who does she think she is? A mobmouse? I’ve written
all about how she completely turned my life upside down in
my new book, My Name Is Stilton, Geronimo Stilton! Now that
I think of it, she reminds me of someone: Thea! As if one
Thea isn’t enough, now I have two!!
