Book Description:

 

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.

 

Never...until now!

 

This may be the adventure Gilbert always wished for.

 

If only he can survive.

My Review

 

Intended for middle-grade readers ( age 10-14) this sci-fi adventure of meeting a Martian girl is likely to engage the younger end although the language at times is quite sophisticated and semi-technical, so likely to stretch older readers too.

The illustrations are lovely and I can see this developing into a range of branded merchandise if the series takes off.

It is humourous in places – more of that please as flying cows certainly caused a chuckle, as did Aoleon being told off by her mother.

I can’t wait until my sci-fi mad seven year old is able to read it himself. This is just the first part of five so there should be plenty more to look forward to.

 

4/5
