Kids’ Club Review by Aayan: The chocolate chase

The chocolate chase / Stilton, Geronimo

It was spring festival at New Mouse city.
The Mouseberg`e egg was the main attraction of the festival. But suddenly the egg got stolen. Geronimo and Hercule were finding it but Trap wanted Geronimo’s help to bake the chocolate egg. Geronimo rushed back and forth to help both Trap and Hercule. Finally,Geronimo got the Mouseberg`e egg and also helps Trap baking the chocolate egg.

I recommend this book because:
It teaches us kindness, love, and being helpful.

5 stars
