A funny space adventure that spoofs Star Wars while providing an easytoread story. BooklistBrave Commander Toad and the crew of the spaceship Star Warts have a mission: they must go where no spaceship has gone before and bring a little bit of earth out to the alien stars. But when they try to land their sky skimmer on the planet made of water, a terrible sound rises from the waves. Deep Wader is not pleased at being disturbed. This planet belongs to me, he roars. It looks as though the crew of the Star Warts might become the monsters lunch.Fans of DK Readers: LEGO Star Wars, Tom Anglebergers Origami Yoda, and silliness will toadally love Commander Toad!
