The Thirteenth Doctor is about to embark on a brand-new adventure with a new friend, and this time she's doing it in the pages of her very own picture book. SYFY WIRE is pleased to exclusively reveal that this spring, Doctor Who will join Quirk Books' line of Pop Classics picture books with a new story involving a lonely little girl, a stray peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and a brand-new alien species.
Doctor Who: The Runaway TARDIS, based on the Doctor Who adventures by Chris Chibnall and illustrated by Kim Smith, stars a girl named Lizzie who's having trouble making friends at school. Lizzie hatches a plan to run away, and packs some sandwiches for her trip, but little does she know that her adventure is going to take her much farther than she imagined. When Lizzie wanders into a phone box that happens to be bigger on the inside, she finds herself stowing away on the TARDIS and in the company of The Doctor. When the ship breaks down, it's up to Lizzie and a group of adorable alien engineers called the Glorp to save the day.
