Aoléon The Martian Girl Part 1 - Review

Book Details:


Book Title: Aoléon The Martian Girl: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Saga - Part 1: First Contact, written and illustrated by Brent LeVasseur

Category:  Middle-Grade, ​94​ pages

Genre: Science-fiction and Fantasy
Publisher: Aoléon Press
Release date: January 31, 2015
Content Rating: G

Book Description:

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.

My Thoughts

This is Part 1 of a 5 Part series, and sets the background for what is to come in Gilbert's adventures. We are introduced to Gilbert a farm boy who keeps getting woken up in the night by some very weird dreams. One night, following one of these dreams, he looks through his telescope and notices a bright light coming towards earth. When he goes to investigate he stumbles upon Aoléon, who he learns is a Martian girl. And so the adventures have begun.

WOW ! What a great way to introduce young readers to the imaginative world of Science Fiction and Fantasy. This is a wonderfully written book, that has lots of bright and vibrant illustrations that draw the reader into the story, and beautifully illustrates the world that Aoléon lives in. I can't wait to read the next part of the story, to find out what mission is being set for Gilbert and Aoléon.

Green-Dagger


Tensions rise between Delvengard and Sorak as the Sorak queen demands the return of the Blade of Torrill. As Delvengard scrambles to locate the mythical weapon, many fear war is inevitable. Fritz, who secretly possesses the dagger, is tormented by its evil. Eager to take control of its power, he journeys in search of a mysterious being who may be able to help. The Green Dagger, Book Two of the BlackMyst Trilogy, continues the adventure, five years after the events of Book One, Eyes of the Enemy.


Excerpt

  He pulled out the dagger and held it in front of him. "You don't control me!" he said. "I'm not a monster." He held the dagger above his head, ready to throw it and be rid of it, but he couldn't stand the thought of losing it. He collapsed to his knees, bringing his arm down and resting the blade on his lap. He pictured Rani crying on the floor after he had attacked her. He could hear the sickening snap of her arm breaking as she fell. He remembered Beynn lying unconscious and bleeding. "I am a monster," he said into the dark.

Dizzy Miss Lizzie - Review and Interview

Author: RM Clark
Published: 17 November 2014
Genre: Fantasy/Mystery
Pinky's Rating (out of 5): 4 dragonflies


Book Description

Thirteen-year-old Kasey Madrid finally has the freedom she's always wanted. Instead of putting up with sitters or camps, she can spend the summer home alone in their ‘new’ house. Never mind that the house is a creepy old place built in the nineteenth century. The creep factor skyrockets when Kasey meets a nineteenth-century girl named Lizzie Bellows in the basement. It takes some time for Lizzie to convince Kasey she's not a ghost, though neither girl understands why they can see each other when they live 120 years apart. 

The differences in their worlds don't stop the two from becoming fast friends. Lizzie's life isn't easy, though. In her time, her parents died in a fire many believe Lizzie started herself. As the summer passes and Kasey learns more about her own past, she is shocked to discover Lizzie is part of a terrible Madrid family secret. It's up to Kasey to go back to Lizzie's world to unlock the secret and clear Lizzie's name.

My Thoughts

This is a great story about a thirteen-year old girl, Kasey Madrid, and the adventures she has when she is left home alone over summer vacation.

When Kasey finds a room hidden in the basement of her new 'old and creepy house' she is amazed that there is somebody else living there. How can that happen? With the help of her best friend Paula, Kasey embarks on a mission to unravel the mystery of Lizzie, the girl in the basement and finds out a terrible Madrid family secret that links Lizzie and Kasey's families. 

Will Kasey be able to break the cycle that was set in motion nearly 120 ago? 

I found my self drawn into the story and at times didn't want to put it down. OK, I know I'm older than the recommended age for this book, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy a well written story that engages readers from the very first page.

I recommend this book to readers and am sure this book will delight young readers with their first introduction to the paranormal/fantasy/mystery genre.

Meet the Author of 
Dizzy Miss Lizzie - Robert Clark

What inspired you to start writing, and when?

A few years back our town unearthed a time capsule from 1967 and had a parade and much hoopla for the event. The time capsule was opened at a park with hundreds of people looking on. I imagined what would have happened if it was empty. That was the basis for my first novel (forever trunked) and it helped me discover and channel the voices in my head. I started writing in 2007 and recently finished my tenth novel.

What is your preferred genre?

I write primarily middle grade, sticking mostly with mysteries. Lately, I’ve broken out into adventure and even a magic-themed coming-of-age story.

Tell us your latest news?

I’m thrilled that my middle grade mystery, Dizzy Miss Lizzie, is being re-released by Writers AMuse Me Publishing. This book originally came out in 2012, but after some legal wrangling with the original publisher, I got my rights back and found a new home for Lizzie. Cue the happy ending music! The follow-on, Running On Empty, will be published in May, 2015.

Can you tell us a little bit about your latest work?

Dizzy Miss Lizzie is the story of friendship between two girls. Thirteen-year-old Kasey Madrid finally has the freedom she's always wanted. Instead of putting up with sitters or camps, she can spend the summer home alone in their "new" house. Never mind that the house is a creepy old place built in the nineteenth century. The creep factor skyrockets when Kasey meets a nineteenth-century girl named Lizzie Bellows in the basement. It takes some time for Lizzie to convince Kasey she's not a ghost, though neither girl understands why they can see each other when they live 120 years apart. The difference in their worlds doesn't stop the two from becoming fast friends. Lizzie's life isn't easy though. In her time, her parents died in a fire many believe Lizzie started herself. As the summer passes and Kasey learns more about her own past, she is shocked to discover Lizzie is part of a terrible Madrid family secret. It's up to Kasey to go back to Lizzie's world to unlock the secret and clear Lizzie's name.

How long did it take you to complete?

I wrote in just over eight months. I’m a slow and steady type of writer.

Are any of your characters based on real-life friends or acquaintances?

No. Some are composites of folks I’ve met over the years (like the Portuguese grandmother). It’s a mostly female cast and I just made them up as I went. I’ve been known to name characters after people I know or have known. That’s the fun part.

Tell us about your cover. Did you design it yourself?

The publisher asked about my vision for the cover and we went through a few iterations before deciding on the current cover. It has just the right mix of mysterious and paranormal elements.

Where did you get the inspiration for your cover?

Much of this book takes place in a secret basement room, so I wanted the transition from upstairs to downstairs and to show both girls on their respective sides of the portal.

Do you plot or write by the seat of your pants?

I start out with a basic idea and some very general waypoints, then let ‘er fly. Sometimes I know the ending early, but mostly I go where the characters take me. I guess that makes me a “pantser.”

Do you write under a pen name?

No, but I have a very common real name, so I use my initials (R. M. Clark). It also makes for shorter autographs.

Do you have any advice for other writers starting out?

This is not the business to be in if you seek instant gratification.  The publishing wheels turn slowly and there is not a whole lot you can do about it except excel at what you can control: the writing. Successful writing is the ultimate payback for any disappointment you may encounter. Keep telling your stories.


Ok, now some fun questions….

Coffee or Tea?

Tea, mostly. I love a hot, steaming cup as I settle down to read.

White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate or Milk Chocolate?

I’ll say milk chocolate, but I’m not a huge fan of any of them. Except M&Ms, if that counts.

What is your favourite colour?

My brain seems to be drawn to the blue/grey side of the spectrum. It’s probably a guy thing.

Winter or Summer?

New England winters can be pretty brutal, so I’ll go with summer. Then again, New England summers can be pretty brutal, too. You know what, I really like October and November, so I’m going off the board and picking autumn.
                                                                         
If you could have one superpower what would it be?

I would love to be able to heal people just with a touch. Of course, that would make me Jesus, but who’s a bigger superpower than Him?

If you could be somebody else for a day who would you choose and why?

I would love be Vin Scully, the LA Dodgers broadcaster, just to know what it feels like to have an awesome set of pipes and an unabashed love of baseball.

Are you a technology buff (i.e have every electronic gadget known to man)?

Not really. I have an iPad for general computer use and a laptop for writing, but I don’t have or need a smart phone or iPod. I still collect and listen to CDs! Most of the TVs in our house are low-definition.

What is a movie or TV show that you watched just recently and enjoyed?

The only non-sports prime time show I watch is Survivor. I recently saw the movie Finding Mr. Banks and really liked it. During baseball season I watch the Red Sox as often as possible.

About Penny Warner

I’m Penny Warner, author of the Code Busters Club series, as well as about sixty other books. I love to write, especially for kids. I have a bunch of books published on having fun with kids—snacks to make, toys to create, games to play, birthdays to host—plus I write mysteries for adults. 

But the most fun I have is writing the Code Busters Club series, because I love codes! In fourth and fifth grade I learned how to Sign, tap Morse code, write in Pigpen code, and speak Pig Latin. I grew up reading Nancy Drew and even wrote a book about what I learned from her called THE OFFICIAL NANCY DREW HANDBOOK. So I thought it would be fun to write a mystery for kids filled with codes for readers to solve.

About Michael Grant

Michael Grant has always been fast-paced. He’s lived in almost 50 different homes in 14 US states, and moved in with his wife, Katherine Applegate, after knowing her for less than 24 hours. His long list of previous occupations includes: law librarian, cartoonist, bowling alley mechanic, restaurant reviewer, waiter, documentary film producer and political media consultant.

Grant and Applegate have co-authored more than 100 books, including the massive hit series Animorphs. Grant went on to write The New York Times and international bestselling series, GONE. His BZRK series takes participants on a roller-coaster ride across print and digital venues. His latest series, MESSENGER OF FEAR, is a morality tale, though since it’s written by Michael, the morality may be quite muddy at times.

Sony and the creative team behind multi award-winning Breaking Bad optioned the TV rights for GONE in August 2013.

Michael, Katherine and their two children live in the San Francisco Bay Area, not far from Silicon Valley. He can be contacted via Twitter @MichaelGrantBks, and www.facebook.com/authormichaelgrant.


It’s hard to come up with a tagline for such a man. We like ‘Michael Grant is the evil genius of YA fiction‘ but Michael came up with a couple of ideas of his own.

Whiny Whiny Rhino - Review and Giveaway


Book Synopsis:

Can Tiny Tiny Rhino have a fun day?
Or will all of his whining get in the way?

If you've ever been worried to try something new,
then Whiny Whiny Rhino is the book for you!

The story’s message is like the Mark Twain quote, “I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.” We all get apprehensive when encountering new experiences and this often leads us to avoid ever trying anything new. Just having a little courage to try new things can often lead to a much more exciting and enriching life.

Review:

I absolutely adored reading this book. 

It is full of fun, bright pages, that are edge to edge full of color that help to tell the story of Tiny Tiny Rhino. Even the youngest readers just starting out will be able to get something from the book, just by looking at the glorious pages.

With just the right amount of words to tell the story without overwhelming readers. We follow Tiny Tiny Rhino as he learns what it means to overcome his fears.

This book covers a number of themes, including bullying, identifying your emotions and belonging.

Pinky's Rating (out of 5): 5 dragonflies

Author's Bio:

McBoop is the creative team of Carmin Iadonisi & Amanda Iadonisi-Word. This father-daughter duo co-wrote and illustrated Whiny Whiny Rhino. They currently live in New England where they enjoy making art, reading comics, playing board games, eating fancy chocolate and whining about the weather.

Lug, Dawn of the Ice Age - Giveaway & Interview




LUG, DAWN OF THE ICE AGE is the first book in a new satirical series about the world’s inaction on climate change from debut author David Zeltser.

In Lug’s Stone Age clan, a caveboy becomes a caveman by catching a jungle llama and riding against the rival Boar Rider clan in the Big Game. The thing is, Lug has a forbidden, secret art cave and would rather paint than smash skulls. Because Lug is different, his clan’s Big Man is out to get him, he’s got a pair of bullies on his case—oh, and the Ice Age is coming.

When Lug is banished from the clan for failing to catch a jungle llama, he’s forced to team up with Stony, a silent Neanderthal with a very expressive unibrow, and Echo, a girl from a rival clan who can talk to animals and just may be prehistory’s first vegetarian and animal rights activist. Together they face even bigger challenges—Lug discovers the Ice Age is coming and he has to bring the warring clans together to save them not only from the freeze but also from a particularly unpleasant migrating pride of saber-toothed tigers. It’s no help that the elders are cavemen who can’t seem to get the concept of climate change through their thick skulls.

“My aim with Lug, Dawn of the Ice Age was to launch a gripping and funny book series that would get kids, parents and educators to enjoy focusing on climate change and the perils of ignoring it,” says Zeltser. “The impacts of global warming are devastating communities around the world. Lug is dedicated to ‘all the kids brave enough to speak up,’ and I have a ‘Giving Back’ section on my website pledging that 20% of my proceeds from Lug will go toward organizations that help such communities, with an emphasis on children and families.”






About David Zeltser

DAVID ZELTSER emigrated from the Soviet Union as a child, graduated from Harvard, and has worked with all kinds of wild animals, including rhinos, owls, sharks, and ad executives. He is the author of Lug, Dawn of the Ice Age, the first book in a satirical series about the world’s inaction on climate change, for ages 8-12. He also has a forthcoming picture book, Ninja Baby, with Caldecott Honor illustrator Diane Goode (Chronicle Books). David lives with his wife and daughter in Santa Cruz, California. He performs improv comedy and loves meeting readers of all ages. His second book about Lug is scheduled to publish in Fall 2015. Visit David’s website at www.davidzeltser.com. He’s also on Twitter: @davidzeltser


Author Interview

What is your preferred genre?

Anything with a strong visual element. LUG is an illustrated middle grade book series where the main character is a cave painter. My first love is picture books. No matter what, I always try to write so that both kids and adults experience and enjoy the book on different levels.

Tell us your latest news?

LUG: DAWN OF THE ICE AGE is being published in the US and, next year, in Europe and Asia. LUG book 2 will be out in 2015 from Egmont USA. Chronicle Books is publishing one of my picture books, NINJA BABY, in 2015, with elegant and hilarious art by Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator, Diane Goode. Also, I’m completing my own artwork for a picture book I wrote. It’s in the same cut paper style as my website.

Can you tell us a little bit about your latest work?

I’m very excited about LUG: DAWN OF THE ICE AGE, which is out in bookstores now. It’s received great early reviews from Kirkus and School Library Journal, and strong advance praise from New York Times bestselling authors Gordon Korman, Peter Lerangis, Patrick Carman, and many other wonderful authors I admire.

Here’s the synopsis:
In Lug’s Stone Age clan, a caveboy becomes a caveman by catching a jungle llama and riding it against the rival Boar Rider clan in the Big Game. The thing is, Lug has a forbidden, secret art cave and would rather paint than smash skulls. Because Lug is different, his clan’s Big Man is out to get him, he’s got a pair of bullies on his case—oh, and the Ice Age is coming.

When Lug is banished from the clan for failing to catch a jungle llama, he’s forced to team up with Stony, a silent Neanderthal with a very expressive unibrow, and Echo (a Boar Rider girl!). In a world experiencing some serious global cooling, these misfits must protect their feuding clans from the impending freeze and a particularly unpleasant pride of migrating saber-toothed tigers. It's no help that the elders are cavemen who can't seem to get the concept of climate change through their thick skulls.

Tell us about your cover. Did you design it yourself?

No, my publisher, Egmont USA, did a great job with all aspects of the book. They brought in JP Coovert to rock the cover. And Jan Gerardi tried to channel a cave boy to create the fun interior illustrations. A great way to see those come to life is in the Lug trailer: http://davidzeltser.com/books/lug-dawn-of-the-ice-age

Coffee or Tea?

Tea. I was born in the former Soviet Union and my parents have a samovar.

White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate or Milk Chocolate?

Yes, please. J

Winter or Summer?

Need both. We live in Santa Cruz, California, but seek out snow in the winter.

Are you a technology buff?

I have a mixed relationship with technology. I definitely see its value, but often wish I lived in a less frantic time. The most high-tech thing in my life is probably my website www.davidzeltser.com. I value my personal connection with readers and worked really hard on the site.  I’m also pretty proud of the trailer: http://davidzeltser.com/books/lug-dawn-of-the-ice-age

The Wiggly Squiggly Princess


Publication Date: November 11, 2013


In the first book in The Wiggly Squiggly Princess series readers meet Princess Squeakers and her family, the Royal VonTootens.
Ages: 0 – 8
*Warning:
This book contains fart jokes and may cause your children to giggle uncontrollably.

Interview with Alissa Dix
1.  What inspired The Wiggly Squiggly Princess?
My daughter – we always called her ‘Princess’ and she was super wiggly when she was a baby.  We started calling her our wiggly squiggly princess and one day I was like “That’d be a great name for a book!” – the rest is history.
2.  What is your ideal writing space?
My ideal writing space would be a small home office with a desk and a desktop – kid free.
3.   Where do you actually write?
Usually on my lunch at work.  There’s no way I could get anything done in my house.  The kids always need something, the house needs cleaned, or Josie tries to crawl/walk on my laptop.
4.  What kind of music do you listen to while writing?
Emo – usually the Spill Canvas station on Slacker radio.
5.  Did you base any part of this story or the characters off of real life?
Yes!  The VonTootens are based off of my family.  Their names are actually nicknames that we had for each other!  (Even the dog and cat are based off of our pets) The family friends and the ‘bad guys’ aren’t based off of real people though.  I will probably use real grandparents and cousins as the series progresses as well!
6.  What made you decide to become an author?
I enjoy writing – I figured I might as well do something I enjoy.  What really made me decide to become an author was Amazon’s KDP – since it opened up the possibility for anyone to get their work read.
7.  What are you reading right now?
My Tethered Soul, by Dorothy Dreyer – I’m reviewing it for a book tour.
8.  What is your favorite part about this book?
Honestly?  That it is a little piece of my family… and it’s just fun.
9.  What was the most difficult thing about writing this book?
Editing!  Every time I’d think it was done, I would find something else I needed to fix.  I’m still working on getting the cover of the paperback version to show up how I want it.
10.  If you were a dessert, what would you be?
A hot fudge sundae with vanilla ice cream and rainbow sprinkles – but not whipped cream or cherries.
Princess Squeakers FUN FACTS!
1.  Besides cheese and apple pie, I really like pizza and chocolate… and broccoli!  Not together of course… that’d be gross.
2.  I can do a cartwheel to the left, but not the right. (I’m left handed – lefties are the besties!)
3.  I can figure skate forwards and backwards and do some easy jumps.  I can’t do a triple-moo-cow, but I can bunny hop!
4.  Until I was four years old, I believed my brother when he said my hair was orange from eating too many carrots.
5.  My brothers and I race to see who can brush our teeth the longest.  I don’t usually win, ‘cause the toothpaste is too spicy.
6.  My favorite dolly is named ‘Miss Dolly’.  I also have a duck stuffed animal that I sleep with every night named ‘Ducky’.
7.  I can sing the ABCs forwards AND backwards.
8.  I want a pet dragon.
9.  I really, really want a pet dragon.  Or a unicorn.  Or a unikitty.
10.  Even though I fight with them a lot, I really love my big brothers!  When they aren’t being stinky, they are super fun to play with.
