MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK
I am so glad I was invited on the tour for this cool short science-fiction / fantasy saga (this is just part 1) for middle-grade readers! There is much to love in Aoléon The Martian Girl: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Saga – Part 1: First Contact, and enough to attract readers of all ages!
With some scenes that may remind you of E.T., you meet young Gilbert. He realizes he has strange dreams the nights when mysterious crop-circle formations appear on his neighbor’s farm. One night, curiosity wins: he goes out and walks towards a powerful light. He meets the driver of a spaceship, the girl Aoléon, who has the power to read his thoughts and memories, and does not hesitate to go with her for a ride, a happy change to his unhappy home where his parents constantly fight.
You will need to read the book to see all the new things Gilbert is led to discover. The book takes place alternatively on the 4th planet (with great descriptions of their megalopolis), at Gilbert’s place, on his neighbor’s farm, at an Air Force Base in Kansas, where a radar controller plays videos games instead of doing his job, and in the White House. There are some really smart elements inserted in the story.
One thing intrigues me, and the answer is not in part 1: why is the girl named Aoléon? What does it mean?
The fonts for the chapters titles are just awesome, perfectly designed for the book! The illustrations are also very neat. There are lots of hilarious scenes, for instance with flying cows. I can easily see this book as an animated movie. Right now it exists as a video game, and there’s also a song.
Here is the beginning of a funny passage in Chapter 3 set in Paris:
VERDICT: This short hilarious science fiction story, with gorgeous illustrations, will make you spend a very enjoyable time, as you get to know Gilbert and his friend Aoléon and follow them to the 4th planet. It is worth the trip!
WHAT IS IT ABOUT
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. [provided by iReadBook Tours]
