PRAISE FOR FIRST DAY OF GROOT!
"Sharing, counting, and spelling are all learned before lunch, when friends gather. Teamwork is tackled afterward, when Thanos attacks, and the last lesson involves music. It's a great day for Groot, and for readers who are fans, it will certainly hit the spot."—Kirkus Reviews
"It's time to relax once / the battle is done. / A SNOW DAY FOR GROOT / ensures wintery fun!" A kid-sized Groot and his best buddy, Rocket Raccoon, have the Guardians of the Galaxy drop them off on Earth during the first snow of the year in New York City. A scarf-clad Spider-Man takes the duo on a tour of the city's sights: the New York Public Library, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, etc. They also go sledding and ride the subway, all with various members of the Marvel Universe looking on or participating in the snow-day activities. But little Rocket rather abruptly feels ignored by Spidey and Groot until Groot notices and changes his three-word catchphrase to "We are Groot...?" Then all is well, and the day ends with skating at Rockefeller Center and some tree trimming. Deneen and Atkinson retest for this third rhyming Groot episode. Heroes and villains, both well known and obscure, wave from the sidelines or participate in the snowy fun, all conveyed in bright, dynamic cartoon illustrations with occasional dialogue bubbles. Eagle-eyed mini Marvel mavens can hunt for Ant-Man and the Wasp in nearly every illustration.
Enjoyable even for the uninitiated ."—Kirkus Reviews
