Commander Toad and the Voyage Home (Paperback)


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

After many long days in the dark of space, the crew of the Star Warts is thinking longingly of home. But when Mr. Hop sets a course for HOME, the spaceship zeroes in on an uncharted planet. The intrepid crew sets out to explore, and Commander Toad stumbles into an extraordinary discovery -- one that gives a new meaning to home. Join these much-loved characters in a toadally new adventure, full of groan-worthy puns and visual jokes.

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