“[A] cheerful story about family and growing up. Brown conveys Arty's observations and growth with wit, insight, and emotional honesty, and the numerous factoids about the cosmos should entice budding astronomers and neophytes alike.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Will please middle graders seeking a funny story about a kid who loves outer space.” ―School Library Journal
“The friendship between Arty and Cash is both preposterous and completely believable. Ultimately Life on Mars isn't about making connections to other planets so much as making them across the street.” ―Kurtis Scaletta, author of Mudville and Jinxed!

This book was touching in a surprising way. When I think of a science obsessed kid's book, I don't often think of a book with such heart. While I am not entirely convinced the author was able to inhabit the voice of Artey - especially when reading the 'Fun Facts About Mars' - I enjoyed the book. I think it is the perfect addition to a school library. Boys and girls would love the characters in this book. I can see a lot of applications when using the book in the classroom - Astronomy, Mars, space, Morse Code, Samuel Morse himself, etc. with the obvious application being to build your own HUEY (Artey's transmitter to Mars) and/or testing it out. I would love to see what students come up with!
