The title character is a mouse that runs a newspaper and writes adventure stories.
Geronimo and the Gold Medal Mystery takes place in Athens, Greece during the 2004 Summer Olympics. Geronimo is sent to cover the games for his newspaper “The Rodent’s Gazette”.
More than a little apprehensive to take on this assignment, Geronimo, who says he’s “not a sports-mouse”, sets off on an adventure to Athens where he solves a mystery and learns about the history of Athens and the Olympics.
Parents will appreciate this book as an opportunity to get their little book-mice excited about the Olympics. For kids who aren’t reading yet, this is a fun one for adults to read aloud.
