NEW MOUSE CITY (MMD Newswire) July 30, 2012 -- With the 2012 Olympic Games set to begin today in London, ''The Rodent's Gazette'' is reporting that the newspaper's editor-in-chief, Geronimo Stilton, has returned from a dangerous mission in time to preserve the event's historic legacy. Graphic novel publisher Papercutz has revealed the entire story in GERONIMO STILTON #10: "Geronimo Stilton Saves the Olympics," available now everywhere books are sold.
"Leave it to those nefarious Pirate Cats to try and ruin the Olympics for everyone, right before the opening ceremonies!" said inventor Professor Von Volt, Stilton's ally. "Luckily, Geronimo, with the help of Petunia, Trap, and Bruce and Benjamin were able to keep them from altering history."
The Pirate Cats, led by the mysterious Catardone III of Catatonia, traveled to Athens in 1896 right before the start of the first modern Olympic Games, but left a trail detected by Professor Von Volt. Stilton and team uncovered their scheme to cheat and win each event themselves, thereby changing history and potentially destroying the future of the Games. Further details on how they managed to foil the plot is detailed in the Papercutz graphic novel.
"This was one of Geronimo's most important missions," said Michele Foschini, Stilton's personal assistant. "We felt it was important to not only tell the tale, but do so in a way that shows the importance of the Olympics to younger readers today." Foschini ad Stilton included historical notes throughout the exciting tale that paint an incredible picture of a momentous time for sports and the global community.
