       “Margot and Mateo Save the World” by Darcy Miller is about two young middle school students named Margot and Mateo. Margot discovers a weird alien creature on Mateo’s back. Margot and Mateo soon find out that the alien is able to control the minds of its victims when it feels threatened. The blue goo covered alien latches onto the victims back and sucks the water from their body leaving them dehydrated and weak causing them to eventually die. Margot and Mateo tried to find the rest of the people who are contaminated. They soon find that all of the people they were looking for were going to one place to welcome their queen. Margot and Mateo think they killed all of the aliens but they soon find that they were sadly mistaken, and the smell of dead whale has something to do with it. To find out what happens next read the book.  

“Margot and Mateo Save the World”  is a book for children between 4th and 8th grade. It’s full of action, some humor, and lots of slime. I think that younger children may not be able to understand what is going on in the story which is why I don’t recommend it for younger children.  Also, the word choice was challenging and some parts of the story also made me sad. The characters varied in personality making it an interesting read. The illustration on the front helped me understand what they look like because there are no pictures in the actual book. For children who enjoy comedy, action and slime all wrapped in one this is the book for you. I personally thought it was a great book. I hope you enjoy reading “Margot and Mateo Save the World.”
