Featuring one of the most popular characters from the new Star Wars films, How to Speak Astromech with BB-8 collects 10 essential BB sounds alongside tongue-in-cheek translations and playful illustrations.

Ten droidspeak audio clips, translation and conversation tips, and funny illustrated scenarios help readers understand and get the best out of their own droid companion in a galaxy far, far away.

This sound-driven operator's guide demonstrates the many amazing qualities of the BB-series of astromechs—including bravery, resourcefulness, curiosity, comedy, and more—all through the entertaining adventures of BB-8.

• New insights on a beloved character that will delight Star Wars fans of all ages
• Follows the success of the sound books How to Speak Wookiee and How to Speak Droid with R2-D2
• Packed with inside jokes

BB-8's (frankly adorable) ball-droid construction, spherical mobility, handy tool bays, dedication and loyalty to their owners make them great mechanical allies and friends.

This sound book celebrates the Star Wars droids and all their quirky traits.

• A celebration of the fan favorite BB-8 and fresh fun from the new trilogy and beyond
• A perfect gift for Star Wars fans of all ages
• Add it to the collection of books like Solo: A Star Wars Story Sound Book by Erin Rose Wage, Star Wars: The Force Awakens Flashlight Adventure Book by Phoenix International Publications, and BB-8 on the Run by Drew Daywalt

BB-8 IS A FAN FAVORITE: The R2-D2 of the new Star Wars trilogy, BB-8 has earned the adoration of fans since his first appearance on screen, and love for the little, spherical droid only grows with each movie. The $67 original BB-8 RC/app-enabled toy has over 2,000 customer reviews on Amazon to date. BB-8’s popularity is owed in part to its sassy attitude—a match even for R2-D2’s—and in part to the fact that it is objectively, scientifically adorable. 

IN-WORLD HUMOR: A relative rarity in Star Wars publishing, and part of what makes some of our other Star Wars publishing (Jeffrey Brown, Jedi Path, etc.) so successful. 

SUCCESSFUL SERIES: HOW TO SPEAK WOOKIE has sold over 200K copies since 2011, and HOW TO SPEAK DROID has sold almost 100K copies since 2013. They continue to sell 5K+ (DROID) to 10K+ (WOOKIE) copies year over year.

FRESH FUN FROM THE NEW TRILOGY AND BEYOND: Where HOW TO SPEAK DROID WITH R2-D2 had fun with the original trilogy, BB-8 will do the same for the new trilogy of Star Wars films. With content from the new trilogy, as well as new spinoff series such as the animated TV series Star Wars Resistance (released in 2018, and also features BB-8 as a main character), this is a fun update to a classic series.

VISION: Featuring one of the most popular characters from the new Star Wars films, this sound book collects 10 essential BB sounds alongside tongue-in-cheek translations and playful illustrations that are packed with inside jokes, all designed to deliver great new content on a beloved character that will delight Star Wars fans of all stripes and all ages.

CONSUMER: Star Wars fans of all ages (safety tested for 7+)
