BB-8 ON THE RUN by Drew Daywalt / Blog Tour: Book Review & Giveaway #BB8OnTheRun

Welcome to the next stop for the BB-8 On The Run blog tour! We're so thrilled to be apart of this tour. Being huge Star Wars fans, this is a book I was beyond excited to feature on the blog. Trust me, it's one that's worth picking up. Below you'll find more information on the book, my thoughts on it, and a giveaway! First, about the book:

When BB-8 is separated from his master, Poe Dameron, on the lonely desert planet of Jakku, he has no choice but to keep rolling. It's all up to him to get a top-secret map back to the Resistance so they can find Luke Skywalker and save the galaxy from the evil First Order.

It's scary to have a big job when you're just a little droid on your own. But BB-8 isn't alone for long. As he speeds across the sand, BB-8 meets all kinds of strangers who need his help. Should he do good things, as Poe always told him, or will that get in the way of his mission?

See how everyone's favorite little astromech droid makes friends and foils enemies in this funny and exciting new Star Wars adventure!

A must have for Star Fans of all ages! Stunning illustrations, and a message about friendship, hope, and never giving up, make this book one readers of all ages will enjoy. Out of all of Daywalt's books, this one is my absolute favorite! That, and I may be bias since it is about one of my favorite droids, BB-8.

Take a journey with BB-8 on his quest to find his master, and in the process, you'll learn that no matter how small this droid is, he's a true friend who does everything he can to help others. Even if it deters him from his mission. BB-8 might be small, but that doesn't mean he can't do amazing things. We loved that he always lent a helping hand to others, and not just his friends. In his helping others, he even over-came his fear of being alone.

Easy to read, and visually stunning, this book is one you'll want to read again and again. With humor, fun, and foiled villains, this is one adventure readers will enjoy. Plus, what's not to love about the illustrated Star Wars world, and getting to hanging out with a droid over and over again. The nice thing is that this book is both for longtime Star Wars fans as much as it for those not familiar with it. I highly recommend picking up this book!
