Part One of Aoléon The Martian Girl by Brent LeVasseur was such a fun book to read. The one thing that I think of when I think about this book is that it had pictures in it and that is amazing. I wish more books I read had pictures in them. The illustrations in this book are amazing. They made reading this book so fun and it was a breath of fresh air for me. It is such a nice break to read a book with pictures that is super easy reading but yet still has an amazing story and kept me interested even though it was for middle school aged kids. I think that this book would be good for both boys and girls and something that kids would enjoy reading this summer. If you have middle school aged children than I would for sure check it out. Heck if you are looking for a fun summer book to read I would check out this series because it is amazing!

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.
