Marshmellows for Martians {Children's book review}


Last year we reviewed Spaghetti with Yeti (by Adam & Charlotte Guillaan, illustrated by Lee Wildish) that Egmont kindly sent us to review. This is Ellie's absolute favourite book, we have read it so many times. We read it at least ten times a week. In fact, I no longer need the book to read it, I know it off by heart, as does Ellie. Marshmallows for Martians is also by Adam and Charlotte Guillain & illustrated by Lee Wildish) and is the second book in the series.

Marshmellows for Martians

"Join George, a young and courageous explorer as he blasts into space, determined to find out what kind of sweets Martians like best. With his homemade rocket and map of the stars, George is sure the Martians will be easy to find. But when he touches down on the red planet, the Martians are nowhere to be seen. George is alone . . . or so he thinks. Could that really be
 a parade of alien musicians?"

Published: 5th June 2014
Price:  £6.99 (paperback)
Aged: 3+

Ellie could not wait to get stuck into this book! She was really, really excited! "I've been waiting for this!" She declared rather proudly.
We started reading it together, or rather giggled our way through this book. We went on an adventure to the red planet with George and his bag full of sweets! She loved that it rhymes. She thought the 'alien band' was hilarious with there cymbals attached to there bums was really funny!  "Ha, that's so silly and so funny" She giggled.

Marshmallows for Martians is a really lovely rhyming picture book for boys and girls, especially if like they like space, adventure and aliens!It is very beautifully illustrated with bright, colourful pictures that kept Ellie interested all the way through. 

It's a cute, funny adventure story with beautiful pictures and I now think Ellie has a new all time favourite book. In my personal opinion I think this adventure picture book is well worth £6.99, I don't think Ellie will ever get bored of this book. You purchase this book from EgmontUK

We can't wait for the next book in the series 'Doughnuts for a Dragon' (Avaliable Autumn 2014)
