Gr 1-5-Inspired by the book series (Scholastic) about the mouse journalist, animated episodes from the TV series are now available on DVD. For those who haven't gotten on the Geronimo bandwagon yet, he's a globetrotting mouse whose life is full of adventures, weird relatives, mysteries, and mishaps. The books are packed with cartoon illustrations, so the transition to animation feels completely natural. In these four episodes, Geronimo is always accompanied by his nephew, Benjamin, which adds to the kid appeal. "Operation ShuFongFong" has our hero trying to rescue two endangered lizards. In "Mouse House of the Future," Geronimo gets a robot butler which leads to techno-mayhem. "Reported Missing" takes place in Africa as Geronimo and company track down a missing explorer. "It's My Scoop" has Geronimo acting against his news nemesis as they both seek the best news scoop in town. Naturally all the villains are nefarious, and Geronimo's bumbling eventually saves the day. Fans of the series will be delighted to see all their favorite characters with all their whacky quirks. There's even a fun theme song. Educational? Not really. Fun? Definitely. This high-quality animated program, with its exciting and humorous adventures, is sure to be a hit with young viewers.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary, Federal Way, WA (c) Copyright 2013.
