A former senior vice president of Apple Inc, who’s worked closely with it’s industrious CEO Steve Jobs, ‘demystifies’ his boss by telling us everything from what Jobs eats to how he is a “master of management by walking around”.

The Curse of the Cheese Pyramid
Geronimo Stilton
Scholastic
Rs 200 pp 115


If you swear by the antics of Stuart Little, Remi (of Ratatouille) or Mickey Mouse, then the adventures of Geronimo Stilton, the energetic and intrepid editor of The Rodent’s Gazette, would be as attractive as a slice of cheddar is to Geronimo’s clan. This book, the second in the series, sees Geronimo scurrying around, solving mysteries in Egypt. Holey cheese, did you say?
