Orbit, the green, fuzzy fixture of Houston sports, released a children’s book over the weekend.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the book is called “Orbit’s First Day of School,” and follows the famous mascot through his first day of class. It shows how Orbit navigates the new experiences and new people that come with starting school.

Orbit spent Sunday signing books downtown at the team store, the only place they will be sold for now.

Astros reps say the book will be available to buy online sometime before Christmas, and if you really can’t wait for your copy, you can preorder it on Amazon.
