Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4
Genre: Science fiction
What did you like about the book? Seven Star wars stories are presented here: Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. The main characters are introduced before the stories. Brian Rood illustrates scenes from all of the movies that look like stills. There are full color illustrations on every page. The stories, written by six different authors with large-size font, are presented in a way to appeal to and be easily read by the intended audience or read to by a parent of caregiver. It is approachable and attractive.
Anything you did not like about this book? No.
To whom would you recommend this book? This is for Star Wars fans or those being introduced to the world of Star Wars.
Who should buy this book? Public and elementary school libraries.
Where would you shelve it? Shelve in fiction or in 791.43 for movies.
Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Only if you are interested in Star Wars.
