There's Nothing To Do On Mars by Chris Gall
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When Davey Martin's family moves to Mars, he discovers that there's nothing to do - at least until he and his robot dog Polaris learn to seize the spirit of adventure. It's not until they've zipped around the planet on his flying scooter - climbing Martian 'trees', digging up 'fossil's" dancing in Martian rain dances - that they discover a treasure that finally piques Davey's interest: a source of water on the red planet! Chris Gall's new picture book plays on the themes (and ironies) of a complaint parents have heard from their children a thousand times: 'There's nothing to do'" The book also offers a deeper lesson to our stationary, convenience-driven society: If you get up off your butt, be creative, and look carefully, you'll be amazed at what you find!
