The author of the Origami Yoda series makes Guardians of the Galaxy characters Rocket and Groot the stars of the show in this illustrated first installment of a trilogy. The titular heroes—a raccoon and a tree man whose only utterance is “I am Groot”— escape a school of space piranhas only to crash-land on a planet that turns out to be one big strip mall. With their trusty sidekick Veronica, a talking tape dispenser, they sally forth and discover that this brave new world is full of bizarre and dangerous foes.

Artist James Sturm (Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow, The Golem’s Mighty Swing) signs his new children’s book BIRDSONG at the Takoma Park Library on Monday, April 11, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. Books sold by Politics & Prose.

Inspired by the Japanese art of kamishibai, or “paper theater,” this wordless story is meant to inspire a performance. A boy and girl are cruelly teasing animals in a forest when a frightened bird takes flight. The children give chase up a mountainside and find themselves confronted by a mystical man who has feathers emerging from his clothing. With a flash like lightning, the children are transformed—into monkeys. Eventually captured by humans, they receive some of the cruel treatment they had earlier perpetrated themselves. In keeping with kamishibai tradition, this tale contains a lesson for young readers to discover as they turn the pages.
