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.
Aoleon is a very cute story about outer space. I know as a child outer space amazed me and still does. I often wonder "What is out there?" I really liked the fact that the crop circle were the fun activities of visitors to our earth. Crop circles as a way to play - made me want to keep reading the book. I kept wondering what was next? Where will this take Gilbert. I found many meaning lessons in the story which I think are valuable for young teens. Brent LeVasseur did a excellent job of incorporating life lessons into the story. Valuable lessons that we all need to be reminded of. I told Isa about Aoleon - The Martian Girl ...she is excited to begin reading it. I even asked Isa if she would like to be the book reviewer for the future books. She is so excited! The day after Christmas her and I are taking a train trip to my Mom's for the holidays. Isa plans on reading Aoleon on the train. When we get back I will be posting her review of Aoleon. Isa is 11 years old and she LOVES to read!
