Who created Geronimo Stilton?


Say cheese! We all know that Geronimo Stilton is credited as the author of his own popular book series, as well as those about his sister Thea, his ancestor Geronimo Stiltonoot, the parallel universe adventurer Geronimo Stiltonix, his friend Creepella Von Cacklefur, and also the Kingdom of Fantasy series. But does a curious mouse reporter really write all of these cheddarific stories?

For many years, the true identity of the author was a mystery. The original Italian publisher, Edizioni Piemme, insisted on supporting the idea that many kids had about Geronimo and his adventures being real. It was later revealed that Elisabetta Dami, an Italian author, world traveller, and co-owner of the company that publishes Geronimo's books, was also his creator.

If you're a fan of the books, you might want to visit Elisabetta Dami’s official website and read the biography section where she declares: "I am Geronimo Stilton's mom!"
