Overview

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

When Commander Toad and the crew of the Star Warts learn that a disaster has struck and asteroid, they race across the galaxy to the rescue. But it's hard to figure out just what is wrong, especially when there is a language barrier between the Star Warts crew and the pigeon inhabitants of the dis-asteroid. A hero is needed, but is even intrepid Commander Toad brave enough to save the day?

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