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 Thoughts...

First off...let me say I hardly ever read "Science-fiction and Fantasy," but since I am just a kid at heart I decided to give this one a try. It sounded like a fun read and I wasn't disappointed it was a delightfully fun romp around the earth, and what fun being chased by the U.S. Air Force over the mountains and the hills of France, and onto Mars...

It also had some humor which made this Gramma chuckle a few times. And the illustrations were fantastic and brought the story to life. It was exciting seeing the illustration of the megalopolis city on Mars. Nothing like I've ever seen before! It was an exciting read and kept me on the edge of my chair wondering what will happen next....
