This book is wickedly awesome! Imagine circle crops, flying cows, chasing space cars, weird looking aliens with different eyes, and a sweet girl who flies like crazy. Gilbert from Earth was able to go to Mars and learned about the planet. Isn't that exciting? All I know is, my brothers and I love the story and the pictures on the book, glossy and colorful! We think Gilbert & Aoleon are now our newest book bestfriends!
Uh oh.. We're doomed! Aoleon and Gilbert fially learned of the Luminon's plan of invading Earth and Aoleon's parents were abducted. Good thing she had her trusted crew - Gilbert the human, Zoot her brave pet, Bizwat the undercover Procyon disguised as a pizza delivery guy, Helios the gigantic robot with sense of humor, Kyrios an old Martian ally, and the leader of the renaissance, Pax. And of course, how can we forget those giant chiron - like little furless dinosaurs, only cuter!
I was so happy when we learned that Gilbert finally had his superpowers / psionic abilities like moving an object with his mind and creating psionic bubble and emitting a ball of energy from his hands. Those powers are really cool! my boy exclaimed! But the last part where they were almost eaten by the giant slor or a sand-eel, man that was so scary!
The author and illustrator did a great job with this book. We admire Brent's talent in storytelling and works of art, he is a genius. We can't wait to finish the entire series!
I can't tell you how awesome this third book is. It actually has more action than the first two books combined. Aoleon & Gilbert found themselves in the middle of an interrogation by the ugly and evil Luminon himself. Then they went to Galactworks to warn the workers about an impending sabotage but they were too late, uh oh! Soon they were captured by Draconian guards and were almost got eaten by an ugly monster with eight eyes and four arms and really big and scary mouth, eeek!
This is really a very amazing book! My brother and I love the colorful pictures illustrated here, so bight and beautiful! Can't wait for my mom to read Book 4 with us!
This second book is even better! Gilbert had finally arrived in Mars, and his adventures began. He got to meet Luminess, the matriarch and leader of the City of Luminon, but somewhere along their meeting, Gilbert, in his mind, saw the Luminess transformed into a lizard. That was really weird!
Then, Gilbert met Aoleon's family, and even ate Galact Platter, the Mars version of pizza, topped with asteroids! How cool is that? I love pizza, too!
And then Gilbert finally had a chance to go to Aoleon's school and met all kinds of people, I mean aliens. The psi-ball match really fascinated me. And then there were also bullies who sabotaged Aoleon's skyboard. Not cool!
We really enjoyed reading this book and looking at the pictures! We can't wait to read Book 3 - Hollow Moon.
This book is awesome! Imagine flying cars, a boy in a cool spacesuit, chasing air-cars, mind reading and weird looking aliens in a really different city - on another planet! How fun and exciting! My brother and I love the pictures on the book too. Plus the story of Gilbert going to Mars is something I want to do, provided that I also have my rocket-ship to go there. Aoleon seemed nice and friendly, although I don't want to ride on her spaceship because I fear we might crash. But we really like the book! Gilbert & Aoleon are now our newest book bestfriends!
