Lill and Mewe Series Book One
When Lill, a young Martian girl, receives a telescope for her birthday and locates planet Earth, she and her water cat, Mewe, "borrow" a new spacecraft called the Whisper 5 and travel to Earth, where they meet a girl named Lily.

What are the secrets of the history of Mars? Follow the exciting adventures of Lill and Mewe as they seek answers in a world of advanced computers, androids, and artificial intelligence.

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite
"Lill and Mewe" was written by Jean E. Lane. In this tale we meet Lill and her cat Mewe. While using her new telescope, Lill saw planet Earth. She and Mewe travel to Earth in her father’s space ship. While there they make a friend of an Earthling, Lily. Meanwhile, back on planet Mars, Lill’s brother Merak was in trouble. While on a mission his ship lost warp drive and he had to be rescued. Lil and Mewe’s adventures continue with Mewe in a swim race and Lill finding something beautiful in the wall of a cave. The orbs are very important as they contain the thoughts of Martians from long, long ago. The orbs are filled with important information about advance technologies.
I enjoyed the way the author mixed fact and fiction to create a book that will teach and entertain at the same time. The author has created a language for Martians which is a bit different from what we speak on Earth but it is very understandable. I think my favorite character in this book is Mewe, the cat. We wonder what fun it would be If all our pets could talk with us. This charming book will encourage children to like science; they will learn about planets, stars and moons. This book will work well for children in the 2nd grade through 6th grade. The illustrations are cute and add much to the plot.
