Crop circles magically appear in Farmer Johnson’s field. A mysterious light sweeps over the night sky and awakens Farmer Johnson and Gilbert, the boy next door.
Curious, Gilbert ventures out to discover the source of the light and stumbles into a beautiful Martian girl sitting in a crop circle. Farmer Johnson also investigates the strange light, and thinking that Gilbert and Aoléon are vandals, he chases them. But they sprint to Aoléon’s saucer and escape only to be pursued by the U.S. Air Force.
Gilbert has never been attacked by swarms of giant killer robots. Never met strange aliens from other worlds. Never skyboarded across a megalopolis hidden deep inside an extinct volcano. Never trekked across a vast Martian desert. And never been eaten alive by a gigantic slor (well, almost never, unless you count Billy the fat bully at school).
And luckily, he has never ever confronted an evil ruler of Mars bent on conquering the Earth to steal its cows.
This may be the adventure Gilbert always wished for.
If only he can survive.
I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
This is a children’s science fiction book featuring Gilbert, a normal human boy, and Aoléon, a normal Martian girl. They meet when Aoléon visits Earth (or Terra as the Martians call it) just for fun and practice flying.
The pictures in this book are great. They’re colorful and detailed and look like they came from a movie. The pictures go well with the descriptions which are detailed enough to give a good visual.
The main characters, Aoléon and Gilbert, both seem fearless which is a good thing because at the end of the book they’re given a mission and they’re going to have to be both smart and brave to complete it.
I think middle grade readers will enjoy Aoléon Martian Girl. It’s a quick read with amazing pictures and is obviously the first book in a series.
