The final frontier isn't just a place for grown ups. In January 2019, children's publisher Little Golden Books will be releasing a series of picture books based on Star Trek: The Original Series!
The series will begin with two introductory books titled "I Am Mr. Spock" and "I Am Captain Kirk." Though they won't be officially released until January 8, you can head to Amazon and pre-order the books right now.
The synopsis for "I Am Captain Kirk" reads:
"Whether making strange new discoveries at the farthest reaches of the galaxy or facing off against Klingons and other alien races, find out what makes Captain James T. Kirk the most famous starship captain ever. Star Trek fans of all ages will love this action-packed Little Golden Book featuring Captain Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise from the classic TV series in a unique retro art style!"
Here's a little bit about "I Am Mr. Spock:"
"A logical, brave, and brainy science officer, Spock is the pointy-eared Vulcan who completes the crew of the USS Enterprise on its five-year mission. Star Trek fans of all ages will love this action-packed Little Golden Book based on the classic TV series. This book will tell them everything they need to know about one of the most famous aliens of all time–with its fun, lighthearted text and unique retro art style!"
Want more? Not to worry—Little Golden Books is already set to release their next Star Trek "novel" on July 2. It will be called "Too Many Tribbles."
"Captain Kirk and the crew of the starship Enterprise are ready for almost anything–except tribbles! When these small, furry creatures invade the ship, Captain Kirk and the crew must act quickly, before they are buried in fur balls! Star Trek fans of all ages will love this action-packed Little Golden Book featuring Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and the rest of the crew from the classic TV series in a unique retro art style!"
