Comments for Commander Toad and the Dis-Asteroid
The second of the Commander Toad books we took on our trip was Commander Toad and the Dis-Asteroid which centers around the dangers of miscommunication. The Star Warts receives a distress call involving "swell beans". They think the senders of the message need more beans when what they really need is something completely different.
Reading this book was fun because at the time we were growing some pea pods which aren't all that different from green beans. It was neat to see something from our day-to-day life included in a very silly story.
Sean also liked the puns that are rampant in this book and in the Planet of the Grapes. He's just getting to be old enough to "get" puns although they still takes some explaining.
