    I, Geronimo Stilton, am no sports-mouse. But that didnt stop Grandfather William from dragging me to a golf tournament so I could be his caddie! Once I arrived, who should I bump into but my friend Kornelius von Kickpaw, aka Special Agent 00K. Someone was plotting to steal the Super Mouse Cup, and it was up to me and Kornelius to crack the case!

    I ran home and crammed my clothes into my suitcase. I was so rushed I forgot to call back 00K.

    Just then the phone rang. It was Grandfather.Make sure you pack l ight, he squeaked. And I mean really l ight, Grandson. No more than two pounds. Now move it! Move it! Move it!

    I repacked my stuff in a smaller bag, making sure I put in only the essentials. Then I raced to the airport.

    Grandfather was nowhere in sight.

    Suddenly, I heard someone calling me. I looked around, but all I saw was a huge mountain of luggage in the corner. Then a face popped out from behind it.

    Over here, Grandson! my grandfather called.

    I was livid. So that was why Grandfather wanted me to pack light! He wanted me to carry all of his stuff! I dragged everything to the check-in counter, where the ticket agent made us pay an expensive fee because the luggage weighed so much.
