C-3PO Does Not Like Sand But What About Sand Cookies?

Droids and desert planets don’t mix, I mean—mechanical parts and sand? Not the best combo. In the new kids book “C-3PO Does Not Like Sand” you get to see firsthand why Threepio is so grumpy when it comes to granular particles.

This adorable Star Wars book is written by Caitlin Kennedy and delightfully drawn by Brian Kesinger. While it’s a story for 6-9 year olds it’s a fun and funny story for kids of all ages.

C-3PO, R2-D2 and BB-8 are on a special mission to the desert planet of Tatooine for the Resistance, but between befriending banthas and cheering on pod races, BB-8 and R2-D2 are having a hard time focusing. What’s a droid to do but have some fun in the sun? It’s a good thing everyone’s favorite protocol droid is on hand to keep the mission on track. But one thing is for certain, C-3PO does not like sand!

But what about Sand Cookies? Surely a droid wouldn’t mind a crumbly, cinnamon sugar treat? Perhaps they can’t digest such things but trust me, humans love them. Make a batch of these sweet sand cookies and serve it with a glass of Blue Milk, while you read this entertaining story with your kids.

Star Wars C-3PO Does NOT Like Sand! (A Droid Tales Book) will be released on June 4, 2019.
