Star Scouts is the action-packed, science fiction graphic novel series from award-winning illustrator Mike Lawrence.
Avani is a not-so-average Earth girl, more interested in fun and adventure than makeovers and boys. Then she finds herself recruited by a spunky alien named Mabel to join the Star Scouts, an intergalactic group of youths working hard to earn badges in space travel, robotics, and more across the galaxy.
“With brilliant worldbuilding and humor in spades, Lawrence has conceived a truly exceptional graphic tale that’s also a classic underdog story; don’t miss this one.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
