Author(s): Geronimo Stilton
What begins as a relaxing vacation turns into a time-traveling adventure, where Geronimo Stilton must travel to Khanbalik, or "The City of Khan" (modern day Beijing) in 13th Century China where he encounters Kublai Khan and Marco Polo. This time, Geronimo and friends must stop the Pirate Cats from corrupting Marco Polo's famous book "The Travels of Marco Polo," and changing history forever!
Geronimo Stilton is the Editor-in-chief of The Rodent's Gazette, the most famous daily newspaper on Mouse Island, but his true passion is to write books, which all become bestsellers. He likes to read books, he likes to listen to classical music, play golf, even collect antique, 18th century cheese rinds, of all things! He adores his work and his family, but he hates to travel, because he gets airsick, seasick and carsick. Nonetheless, he often gets involved by Thea and his relatives and friends in extreme situations and adventures all around the world.
