Mystery Reader Picks:

LifeOnMarsLife On Mars 

by Jon Agee 

K - 2nd Grade 

Jon Agee does it again.  If you liked It's Only Stanley, and who wouldn't, you will enjoy Agee's whimsical space exploration-centric Life on Mars.  A lone astronaut sets out to prove that there is in fact life on Mars.   He is disappointed, but wait! Not so fast...  

Large images with high contrast colors and a sparse planetary landscape make this the perfect book to read aloud to a group.  Children and adults alike will be drawn in by the humor in both the text and the pictures of this charming book.
