An original fiction title starring Rocket and Groot from the highly popular Guardians of the Galaxy film.
This middle grade novel, perfect for 8-12 year olds, follows Rocket Raccoon and his walking, talking tree buddy Groot, as they crash-land on a mysterious planet made up of┬á99 cent stores, nail salons and low-end chain restaurants … basically it’s a planet made entirely of shopping malls!
There are also robot employees bent on destruction, toilets that want to eat anyone that comes near them, flying teeth, killer yo-yos, and Veronica: a highly intelligent tape dispenser that has the skills of a ninja!
This is first in a series of original Rocket and Groot novels written and illustrated by Tom Angleberger, creator of the Origami Yoda series.
