Elisabetta Dami was born in Italy in 1958.
At the age of eighteen, Dami started working as a proofreader for Dami Editore, the publishing house owned and started by her family.
She has a wide collection of works, but her most popular (and my favourites of hers) is her Geronimo Stilton series.
The first book was published in the year 2000 and are targeted at children six to twelve years old. Since being published over 100 million copies have been sold all over the world in many different languages.
Dami has written over 100 books.
I love the Geronimo Stilton books. I remember being in elementary school and I had the same teacher for two years and she used to read us these books every day.
I don’t remember everything about them, it was a long time ago and I’ve read a lot of other books since then, but I do remember looking forward to that time in the day when she’d grab one of the books and sit at the front of room.
I think part of the appeal was that she never asked one of us to read it she would always just do it herself which definitely made it more enjoyable as she could pronounce everything.
These books are great for children of all ages, not just the age group they’re aimed at. I’d definitely recommend these for anyone with kids, whether you’re a parent, a siblings, a babysitter, or ever a summer camp councillor.
I guarantee the kids you know will enjoy these books.
Have you read any Geronimo Stilton?
