Blog Tour of Aoleon The Martian Girl Part 1 by Brent LeVasseur -- REVIEW

 with No comments 
In , ,  

Another first for moi in the form of author Brent LeVasseur's series, Aoleon the Martian Girl. This is a graphic book for middle grade students which offers a great story, very vivid and colorful graphics, and smart vocabulary. I'm part Japanese, so it's kind of embedded in my DNA that I will like mangas or Japanese comic books, but I've never really read anything like Aoleon the Martian Girl. I was very hesitant at first, considering I'm not into Sci-Fi, nor am I that interested in middle grade materials. So to say that I was surprised at how much I liked this, is an understatement.

SYNOPSIS:
Science Fiction Book - Part 1 First Contact - Aoleon The Martian Girl

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.

Join Gilbert and Aoleon in this exciting middle-grade science fiction and fantasy adventure!
CHARACTER BACKGROUND:
Gilbert is a boy with such wild imagination...at least that's what his mom tells him. He knows that there's something out there, and with his tedious life, he's been waiting -- and wanting -- for the time that he'll be able to go on an adventure.

Aoleon is a cute, little alien girl from Mars who's practicing for her flying license. It's not exactly the kind of aircraft that pilots fly though. She's a sweet and compassionate girl who wants to help give Gilbert the thrill he seeks.

REVIEW:
First things first, the illustration was off the chart! I especially liked the one of outerspace. The pictures was simply amazing. On the same note though, I think the humans could be done better. It's just that the background is done marvelously, and the people seem to serve as a...for lack of a better word, flaw. Admittedly, I was a tad freaked by the first image. Going to the story, it was good. Really fast-paced with a lot of action; being chased by the US Air Force and all the other dangerous situations they get themselves into. Aoleon is a bit reckless, which reminds me a lot of a teenage girl, while Gilbert resembles a dorky boring boy who secretly wishes for his life to change, but then freaks out a lot when it does become reality. It's a truly good book, with parts showcasing deep vocabulary and really good drawing. 4.5 stars for the first instalment for a great series.
