To Protect and Serve: "Step Into Reading" Book

On January 6th of this year, Random House and Disney·Pixar released a brand new "Step Into Reading" book based on the upcoming Cars Toon, To Protect and Serve! This book is a "Step 2" reading level, which means it's best for "Reading with Help, Preschool-Grade 1." It's a very cute story, very simply written for young kids. Since the Toon hasn't been released yet, this is a great teaser for what's to come without spoiling too much.

This adaptation is written by Frank Berrios, illustrated by the Disney Storybook Art Team (though it looks like screen shots from the film), is 21 pages long and includes two pages of 16 tear-out "game cards."

Here's preview of what you can expect inside:

Here is the official synopsis for the upcoming short (and in turn, the book as well):

When Sheriff takes a mandatory vacation, two overzealous rookies from County [Didi - 05 and Mike 07] take over his duties in Radiator Springs. Bent on making a good impression to score commendations, the rookies over-do every aspect of their jobs, finding “crimes” at every turn and turning the quiet little town into a hotbed of taped-off crime scenes. No one is safe and everyone’s a suspect until Sheriff senses an imbalance and returns home to right the “justice” that’s been served.

While there is no specific released date yet for this Toon, it will be released sometime during 2015. It's a pretty long time coming, as it was announced at the 2013 D23 Expo! For more info, visit my friends over at (who had the exclusive first look). I can't wait for this one to come out, the story and characters seem totally hilarious!

If you're looking to pick up this book for your collection, visit Amazon using the direct link below. Highly recommended for young (and the young at heart) Cars fans!
