Gr 1-3–Emerging readers will giggle and learn in this early reader comic. A group of Marshmallow Martians from the planet Moop have a portal that allows them to travel to Earth. But first, they must choose a mission. And so, they choose Earth smells. The Martian foursome head to an amusement park, and each captures a smell to bring back to their planet. There are plenty of jokes and a bit of learning. Perfect for early readers who want to read a comic and explore some scientific fun. There isn’t a cohesive “lesson” in this book, just many interesting and random tidbits. The soft pastel colors, bouncy artwork, and large panels work together to create a fine comic for kids.
VERDICT This title has the potential to appeal to young kids everywhere.
