Locke’s an avid reader himself and made sure that all the books in the series are filled with illustrations and narrative that perfectly describe what its like to be on a rollercoaster of an adventure with an extraterrestrial creature. More than the escapade, Locke encourages the readers to seek friendships beyond imagination and that these friendships will, in turn, bring us great things.

The simple narrative of each book can make kids and parents easily immerse into the book and be in awe of Mikkee’s powers that help solve problems, fix conflicts, and make it possible for them to capture escaped lions and even criminals paranormal. In a time where chaos seems to trump over peace, this book series can be a perfect escape for children whose only companion over the past year is their mobile phones. Submerging themselves in books such as Locke’s masterpiece will make them realize what a wonderful world there is outside of their phones.

An extraterrestrial adventure not only illustrates the importance of exploration but also highlights the significance of socialization for children. Mikkee might be a fictional character, but he sure is more than just an alien.

The diverse characters and world that Locke presents are fictional for sure, but it does take the readers on a journey of a lifetime. Where one would not be afraid of surprises, may it be paranormal, extraterrestrial, or even haunted houses, tv studios, and even castles full of medieval artifacts!

Be one with Mikkee the Martian, Billy, and Jilly in an adventure that will last a lifetime in Peter Locke’s Mikkee the Martian series.
