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

Gilbert Sullivan has been having dreams lately of aliens. His mom says it is him playing too many video games. Gilbert awakes him his latest nightmare. He hears a noise and goes to look out of his telescope. He originally thought it was a shooting star but then realizes that it is a space ship. It has landed in the corn field. Gilbert rushes out and bumps into someone. A girl. Her name is Aoleon. She is from Mars.

I absolutely loved the graphics in this book. They were not your usual graphics. They were just like out of a video game. They were eye catching, vivid and colorful and just popped off the pages. All the time while I was reading this book on my computer. Then there was the story itself. Gilbert and Aoleon are great together. I was a little jealous of all of the cool fun that Gilbert was having with Aoleon in her space ship traveling all over the world. There was plently of action to keep this story moving along at a good pace. Also, I like that the author did not use a lot of big words. For the younger readers it would be hard to pronounce the words and understand what they mean. Even though the author did put a glossary at the back of the book with the definitions. This is book one. There are five books in this series. So now is a good time to start this series. Plus check out the Itunes album to this book.
