CASTLE IN THE STARS HC GN #4

FRENCHMAN ON MARS

(W) Alex Alice (A) Alex Alice (CA) Alex Alice

What if man journeyed into space in 1869, not 1969? In A Frenchman on Mars, Alex Alice draws on Jules Verne and nineteenth-century romanticism to create a watercolor world of adventure and wonder to enchant adults and younger readers alike. When Seraphin, Hans, and Sophie land on the surface of Mars - with stowaway Lo c and the wicked Gudden in tow - they're prepared for danger. But with its gravity-defying rain and giant carnivorous beasts, Mars is even more treacherous than they expected. Then Seraphin suddenly finds himself separated from his friends and alone in the Martian wilderness. He must learn to trust a mysterious creature to guide him back to safety, but this creature has an agenda of their own.
