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 don’t read many middle grade or younger reader books, but I wanted something new to read with my niece. She is lover of Wimpy kid and another younger reader series. She and I were super excited to read Aoleon :The Martian Girl because she love anything science fiction as well as myself.
Gilbert is a fun farm boy from Nebraska who gets carried away on adventures by an extra-terrestrial girl named Aoleon. I love that this book draws you in and you are in the middle or it before you know it. The characters and writing are fantastic for any reader. The colored illustrations bring a whole new life to this story, they are some of the best graphics that I have ever saw in a book in a long time. At times they felt 3D, it was amazing. It fast paced, actins packed and my niece loved it. She and I can’t wait until the next one. 4 out of 5 stars.
