Review: Mars Needs Moms

Author: Berkeley Breathed

Who needs Moms? Moms are bossy and won’t let you have any fun. At least that’s what Milo always thought.

Who needs Mom’s? Martians, that’s who. Martians decide that they need moms on their planets. So the Martians come to earth and steal Milo’s mom. Seeing his mom kidnapped, Milo relizes just who needs a Mom: He does!

This is a beautiful kids book. I recommend this book as a great read-a-loud book for your little ones.


  1. I had heard of the poorly-received film adaptation of this, but I didn’t know the book was by the ‘Bloom County’ guy. Is the character in this the same Milo who shows up in ‘Bloom County?’
