Overview

Commander Toad and the Planet of the Grapes by Jane Yolen, Bruce Degen

"A funny space adventure that spoofs Star Wars while providing an easy-to-read story." —Booklist

When Commander Toad finds a new planet that seems the ideal place for a picnic for his tired crew, he and Lieutenant Lily go down to look around first, only to be swallowed up by giant grapes. Is this the end for the brave crew of the Star Warts? Or can Doc Peeper, the ship's medical officer, help them escape from the Planet of the Grapes?

Fans of DK Readers: LEGO Star Wars, Tom Angleberger's Origami Yoda, and silliness will toad-ally love Commander Toad!
