Each spread in Guide to Groot: A Sound Book chronicles the different meanings of "I am Groot" based on a given situation—humorous, awkward, and even sentimental. 

With three simple words and his selfless, straightforward actions, Groot stole the hearts of audiences everywhere in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and again in Guardians of the Galaxy 2—albeit a much smaller Groot!

Guide to Groot: A Sound Book celebrates the humor and keen understanding of everyone's favorite Flora Colossus from Planet X and honorary member of The Guardians of the Galaxy (though you can just call him Groot) through his signature phrase.

Each fully illustrated spread shows off a scene from the movie. Scenes are hilariously paired with Rocket Raccon's keen insight into what his friend is actually trying to get across when he says "I am Groot" in a variety of different situations—whether humorous, awkward, or even a little bit sentimental. The attached battery powered sound module lets readers hear Groot 10 different ways in his own voice.
