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!
Chris Gall is the illustrator of AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL and DEAR FISH. He has received over 50 major awards from the likes of the Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts Magazine, The New York Art Directors Club and Print Magazine.
