Today, we’re kicking off the blog tour for BB-8 on the Run by Drew Daywalt & Matt Meyers, an adorable new picture book about everyone’s favorite droid. Keep reading to learn more and for your chance to win a copy!
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!
