Aoleon The Martian Girl is a middle grade sci fi story. This review is for part one of the book. I don't usually review this genre but thought I would give it a try. I really liked it and think that most children, boys or girls would enjoy the book. The main character is a Gilbert, young farm boy from Nebraska and a young Martian girl.
There are crop circles appearing in Mr.Johnson's fields and he thinks that Gilbert is the culprit, but that is not the case but Gilbert goes to investigate and finds Aoleon, a Martian girl just sitting within the crop circle. Now this is most peculiar as Gilbert has never seen such a thing as crop circles let alone a Martian girl. His curiosity is piqued though so he goes along with her on her saucer. Of course any young child enjoys a good adventure and so does Gilbert. I think it will be fun to see what adventures await him with Aoleon in the next chapters.
The book is illustrated, by the author, and the pictures are very vivid and imaginative that will be sure to delight the reader. I think at this age pictures that go along with the story are a great thing. It gives the childs imagination something to give them an insight into the story.
