H.G. Wells's classic tale of war between humans and Martians imagines the horror and destruction of alien invasion. When the Martians need a new home planet, they send an army to take over Earth for their own needs. Chaos spreads as the Martian's fighting machines and red plants make their way toward London. Man's fight to preserve their planet has been adapted for young readers in the Calico Illustrated Classics adaptation of Wells's The War of the Worlds.
