I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
This is the second book in a series. In the first book, Aoléon and Gilbert meet on Earth and she takes Gilbert to Mars when they are chased by neighbor. In this book, Gilbert learns about Martians and that there are other beings besides Earthlings (or Terrans as Martians call us).
Aoléon #2 is mostly about how Martians eat and live. They go to school just like children on Earth. They also have the capability to read minds and share their thoughts. Because of one such episode, Gilbert knows that there is something strange going on with the Luminess (the spouse of their leader), and he and Aoléon plan on finding out what it is. I’m sure that will be addressed in a future episode.
Brent LeVasseur does a good job at describing Mars, its buildings, and especially the characters. His pictures are also great. They’re detailed and colorful.
I think any child would enjoy this story of the friendship between a boy and a Martian girl. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
