“Whoohoo!” Gilbert cheered as he ran and jumped high in to the air using the newly found power of his suit combined with the slightly lessened gravity of Mars relative to the Earth. He had almost superhuman strength and speed.
What I thought of this book
Part two of this adventure is mostly a scientific lesson. Gilbert is learning a lot of things about Martians and how they are a lot like humans. They eat pizza thought it has Galact on it instead of meat, but it must have been okay since Gilbert ate it. Then he learns about how it’s possible to be faster that the speed of light. Gilbert gets to go with Aoléon to Martian school where we learn more scientific things.
Gilbert gets to meet Aoléon friends and watch her play Psi-ball and we learn that even Mars has mean girls.
Part two was fun but not as fun for me as the first part. It was in Part two that the author breaks out a lot of scientific stuff and that is one reason I am not a sci-fi buff. I am also not sure if most middle graders would be able to follow some of that stuff and there was an extremely long word in there that I had no clue what it was..lol. So I got a little board with that part and then they played Psi-ball and it got fun again.
I guess I was expecting them to start off trying to find out what was going on and start the task that they find out about in Part one. So over all it was okay and I am curious as to see where Part three will take me. Cute alien adventure.
