Join Gilbert and Aoléon as they embark on an adventure to the planet Mars and beyond. On Mars they uncover a sinister plot by the Luminon (the supreme leader of Mars) to invade Earth and steal its milk cows. Only Gilbert and Aoléon can save both of their worlds from impending doom.
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.
This may be the adventure Gilbert always wished for.
If only he can survive.

(See above right.)
When he isn’t doing chores on his parents’ farm, the 11-year-old Nebraskan farm boy typically is out playing with his friends, studying, or pulling pranks.
Zoot is Aoléon’s pet moog.
A Procyon commando under cover as a pizza deliveryman for Saturn Pizza (Mars’ largest pizza franchise), he conducts covert operations, sabotage, subversion, and assassinations. He is expert at psi-blade fighting, demolitions, and close-quarters combat. (See below.)
Helios is a first-generation Martian soldierbot. Bizwat recovered him from a junkyard and pieced him back together. Built like a tank, there isn’t much that can faze him in combat. However, he hates heights, flying, and sand (because it gets in his joints). And he grumbles a lot. (See below far right.)
