Marshmallows for Martians

Publisher: Egmont Books

Review

A combination of sweets and Martians seems unbeatable for early years foundation stage readers. The Guillains have matched a child-friendly plot with a rhyming storyline to child-friendly images, filled with visual clues to the story, plus plenty of additional material. When George gazes at the stars as he goes to sleep, he decides to make a trip into space to see what sweets Martians like best. Armed with a vast selection, he builds a rocket, packs a bag and blasts off. When he arrives on Mars, however he finds a parade of aliens from other planets, before he ingeniously solves the Martians' noise problems!

Bright, busy illustrations provide ample material for discussion, filled with a jumble of familiar objects and extraordinary aliens.
