I'm currently working with Brent LeVasseur, a talented author who wrote and illustrated this MG sci-fi action adventure tale that has captured the attention of kids, teachers, moms and book bloggers. He's got fans of all ages who are gleefully enjoying the adventures of Gilbert and Aoléon the Martian girl.
When Brent first contacted me last October and told me about his 12-year project that was soon to be released in a five-part series, he asked me what I thought of the book and if I would be able to help him market it. Having read a slew of MG books with my kids I was quickly taken in with Aoléon The Martian Girl. The illustrations alone were just awesome.
I showed the book to my son who wouldn't open a book on his own unless it was for a school project. Publishers were sending me MG books and my son barely looked at them. I was getting desperate to find a book he would look at! When I showed him Aoléon and asked him what he thought, his first reaction was, "Yeah, that looks cool, I'll read it." And he actually did. My reluctant reader son not only read this book, but he loved it and thought it was funny and super cool.
