Martians went to space. They visited the other planets looking for other living creatures. They didn't find anything on Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, Mercury, or Venus. Last they went to Earth. They landed on the South Pole and found penguins. They all had fun together, then the Martians went back to Mars. I think this book is really funny because some of the Martians are afraid of penguins. I liked it when they found life on earth. I also liked seeing all the planets, because we learned about the planets in school. My favorite part was when the Martians first started their trip, because they were going to other planets. Other people should read this book because it's really funny and cool.
