The Thea sisters have been invited on a mission to the moon. They are the guests of billionaire business mouse, Napoleon Smith, who is trialling out his space travel agency to a small number of select guests. After going through some training and being in awe of the company they are in, the sisters soon realise there are things going on under the surface. Then a shuttle crashes and the robots in the moon resort start acting terribly. It looks as though Napoleon Smith’s dream of a hotel on the moon may not happen. It’s a good thing the Thea sisters are there, they have a knack for sorting out mysteries like this.

Another entertaining installment of the Thea Stilton series. The fun style of these stories is not the only reason they are so popular. Yes they are visually appealing but the stories are also engrossing and fun. As an added bonus there are little factoids thrown in along the way, to encourage learning as well as entertainment. These books are a good introduction to chapter books, though some readers may find the volume of text a little daunting, something I found to be balanced out by the shortness of the chapters and the very visual presentation.

Recommended.
