5.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars Level 4 book 5 Oct 2010
Another great book from DK Readers - the star wars theme just lured my sons in, so no complaints! (The 4 year old loved looking at the pictures and telling his own version of the story after his brother was done reading!)
Wish there were more Star Wars books in this level to choose from (that we don't already have!)

5.0 out of 5 stars here's a great one for the boys 18 Jun 2008
By The Delite Rancher - Published on
As the title suggests, "Epic Battles" is a look at combat in the Star Wars universe. It's a terrific premise for a book since young viewers have often found the fight scenes to be one of the most compelling dynamics of the story. The book takes a thematic approach and looks at land and space battles. The major conflicts are well covered including the campaigns that happened on Naboo, Geonosis, Kashyyyk, Hoth and Endor. In addition to the major space skirmishes, time is spent on the more exciting dogfights like Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Starfighter vs. Jango Fett's Slave I. In addition, Author Simon Beecroft discusses the saga's most interesting lightsaber duels. The book does in excellent job of showing how the Sith are behind much of the galaxy's discord. A strength of the title is that is pulls the entire saga (all six films) together. A glossary is included. In terms of the illustrations, the vast majority were lifted from the films. While the pictures are high quality, the writing is also good. Given the 48 page length and vocabulary level, this title is best suited to readers on a fourth or fifth grade level. "Epic Battles" offers an exciting look at the great conflicts of the Star Wars saga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a young Star Wars Fan 14 May 2008
By D. M. Challies - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought all the Star Wars DK Readers for my six year-old son. He was bringing home the most insipid reading books as homework, and was not interested in the content, or in reading them, at all. The Star Wars series and other super-heroes readers have had a huge positive impact on his eagerness to read. This book is aimed at an older age group, but we read it together and he is aiming for the day when he gets the 'certificate' for reading the entire book on his own (he is working up from the easier books).

My younger son took over a year to get tired of this book. He loves Star Wars and we read this book at least four times a week for the first year we owned it.

What else can you ask for? It helped me engender a love of reading in my son.
5.0 out of 5 stars We both enjoyed this book 21 Sep 2012
By Kurt A. Johnson - Published on
Recently, my younger reader discovered Star Wars, and fell in love. This book is written for younger readers (approximately grades 3-4), and it tells all about epic battles in the Star Wars movies. The short chapters are titled What Side Are You On? (Jedi and droids, Sith and Rebels, and so forth), Legendary Land Battles (Naboo, Geonosis, Hoth, etc.), Space Battles (the battle over Naboo, Obi-Wan versus Jango Fett, etc.), Rebel Space Battles (the destruction of the Death Star, the Battle of Endor, etc.), Lightsaber Clashes, and Famous Showdowns (Obi-Wan versus Jango Fett at Kamino, Luke Skywalker versus Jabba the Hutt, etc.)

This is a really good book, with a good deal of nice, colorful pictures from the movies. We both enjoyed this book and recommend it to you and your younger reader!
