Mars wants our cows (yes, cows!) and they're sending an invasion fleet to take them from us. Only Gilbert and Aoleon the Martian Girl stand in their way!
Gilbert always longed for adventure but now that he has it, he's not sure that it's everything it's cracked up to be. Ever since the night he met Aoleon the Martian Girl sitting in the middle of a crop circle in Farmer Johnson's field, it's been nothing but one wild ride after another.
From fighting off swarms of giant killer robots to dealing with strange aliens from another world, never mind trekking across the vast Martian desert in order to skyboard deep into the center of a (hopefully!) extinct volcano, Gilbert's had his hand full just trying to keep up with it all. And now it's up to him and his new friend, Aoleon, to face off against the evil Martian overlord and keep our cows safe at home where they belong.
The launch of this exciting and innovatively illustrated new series takes the reader deep into the heart of an unforgettable and out-of-this-world friendship in a story full of hijinks, hilarity, and good old-fashioned fun. Join Gilbert and Aoleon in this exciting middle grade science fiction adventure today!

Aoleon The Martian Girl Part 1 starts of at the Sullivan Farm House in Nebraska where we meet Gilbert Sullivan. Gilbert seems like a normal farm boy with a pet cat and strange dreams. Gilbert wakes up from one of his dreams and because he can't go back to sleep decides to look at the sky through his telescope when he sees a strange light pass over his house. He decides to go investigate and that's how he ends up meeting Aoleon The Martian Girl. Right away Gilbert can tell that Aoleon is friendly. So then their adventure begins! First they run away from Gilbert's neighbor, Farmer Johnson, who is trying to shoot them then they have to escape from military planes trying to shoot them down! I'm so glad the book tells you every time the setting changes because I would have been so confused. The story starts off in Nebraska but it takes you to California to Paris and even to Mars!
What I loved the most about Aoleon The Martian Girl Part 1 was what I love about most fantasy books the action and adventure! The characters are likable, the illustrations are great and I laughed so much! Even though this is a middle grade book I would recommend this book to people of all ages because I believe anyone would enjoy it especially if you're into reading fantasy and science fiction but if you're not you might enjoy it anyway. I give this book 4 stars because I did have to go back and reread some parts a couple times to make sure I understood what was going. Overall a very good book anyone can enjoy!
