About the Book

Meet the Marshmallow Martians: a group of curious aliens who can’t get enough of planet Earth! This hilarious, fast-paced graphic chapter book will tickle young readers’ funny bones!

In this adventure, the Martians--along with their space cat, space dog, and marshmallow robot assistant--learn about something called "show and smell." (Does that sound right? It sure doesn't smell right!) They go in search of Earth's smelliest smells to bring back to their home planet, Moop. Where will they find the best smells? An amusement park, of course!

This silly graphic chapter book, with its ensemble of lovable Martians, will have kids ages 5 to 8 laughing out loud while gaining confidence in reading. Graphic chapter books serve as a great bridge to graphic novels and longer chapter books.

Author Bio

DEANNA KENT and NEIL HOOSON are a writer-artist duo in Kelowna, Canada. Together, they’ve worked on some of the biggest brands for kids and families—including books, marketing campaigns, and interactive experiences. Deanna loves twinkle lights, black licorice, and Edna Mode and may be the only person on the planet who says "teamwork makes the dream work" without a hint of sarcasm. Neil is king of Les Paul guitar, makes killer enchiladas, and really wants aliens to land in his backyard. By far, their greatest creative challenge is raising four (very busy, very amazing) boys and their giant dog, Hugo.

“These alien confections are silly perfection.” Kirkus Reviews

"Emerging readers will giggle and learn in this early reader comic." —School Library Journal
