"In LeVasseur's debut middle-grade sci-fi novel, a friendly extraterrestrial girl whisks a Nebraska farm boy away for a wild adventure of Martian intrigue, rebellion and invasion." -Kirkus Reviews

DESCRIPTION - Part 1

Mars wants our cows (yes, cows!), and they're sending an invasion fleet to take them from us. Only Gilbert and Aoleon the Martian Girl stand in their way!

Gilbert always longed for adventure, but now that he has it, he's not sure that it's everything it's cracked up to be. Ever since the night he met Aoleon the Martian Girl sitting in the middle of a crop circle in Farmer Johnson's field, it's been nothing but one wild ride after another.

From fighting off swarms of giant killer robots to dealing with strange aliens from another world – never mind trekking across the vast Martian desert and skyboarding deep into the center of a (hopefully) extinct volcano – Gilbert has had his hands full just trying to keep up with it all. And now it's up to him and his new friend, Aoleon, to face off against the evil Martian overlord and keep our cows safe at home where they belong.

The launch of this exciting and innovatively illustrated new series takes the reader deep into the heart of an unforgettable and out-of-this-world friendship in a story full of hijinks, hilarity, and good old-fashioned fun. Join Gilbert and Aoleon in this exciting middle-grade science fiction adventure today!

Vivid descriptions and gorgeous illustrations

After quickly flicking through the pages of this book the thought that came to mind was “oooo! this is going to be fun!” The story was charming with quite a bit of dry humour that a young person would enjoy. Brent used vivid descriptions to describe Gilbert’s home in the Nebraskan countryside. I especially enjoyed reading them as they transported me back to my childhood living on a farm in the prairies. The artwork just popped and I felt myself wanting to see this as a film.

What is so special about this book is the fact that Brent uses a fun method to teach young people about astronomy, geography, physics and science. (don’t tell your kids!) The vocabulary is pretty impressive – this book makes learning fun! The end of the first book is really action-packed and I hadn’t expected a cliff-hanger. I really want to know what happens next…when is the next book coming out? :D

My reluctant reader son called this a cool book!

When I was offered this book in exchange for an honest review, I showed it to my 11 year-old son who wouldn't open a book on his own unless it was for a school project. Publishers were sending me MG books and my son barely looked at them. I was getting desperate to find a book he would look at! When I showed him Aoléon and asked him what he thought, his first reaction was, "Yeah, that looks cool, I'll read it." This is his review in his own words:

"This book was funny and cool. I laughed at some of the scenes, especially the chase scenes that made a lady smear lipstick all over her face and cows that started to fly. When I was reading it, I could see it like a movie in my head. I hope this book gets made into a movie. The jokes in this book are good for younger audiences but some things would only make sense to older audiences (way older). It also helped that the author included a glossary in the back of the book.

Gilbert is my favorite character. He is funny, cute and smart. He knows his stuff and he is curious. I liked his space suit and how he was amazed by the planet Mars and what Aoléon showed him. Aoléon is also a cute, smart and independent girl. She helps Gilbert fit in and not be discovered. But the thing I liked the most about this book is the graphics. The pics are amazing and stunning. I liked looking at them and seeing all the details that the author put in the illustrations.

So pretty much the only thing that I wished was that the book moved at a faster pace at the beginning because I wanted to get into the action. But my mom, who reads a lot (and I mean a lot!) says that it's normal at the beginning of a series that the author takes the time to build the characters and the storyline. But I still loved this amazing book!"

For a mom, it can't get better than to see her child lying on the sofa reading a book and giggling away.
