Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4.5
Genre: Science Fiction
What did you like about the book? Graphic novels are such an excellent way to introduce a new audience to an established series that they may be too young to read in novel form. They are also a treat for those familiar with the story line and want to re-visit. This prequel trilogy consists of The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith starring Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Parme’ Amidala, Darth Maul, Yoda and the rest of the cast of villains and heroes that populate the stories. The illustrations are excellent and the stories flow smoothly.
Anything you did not like about this book? Not a thing.
To whom would you recommend this book? Recommend to Star Wars fans, particularly to a younger audience who will be able to visualize the story from the illustrations.
Who should buy this book? Public, Elementary and Middle school libraries
Where would you shelve it? Graphic novels
Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? For Star Wars fans, yes.
