This book is written as a who's who guide to aliens and droids in the Star Wars films; from 'Jar Jar Binks' to 'Ewoks'. I learned alot about the lizard keepers of Geonosis - thanx!
The book is narrated by C3PO, and has about 3 short sentences about each character or creature in easy to access language. It is illustrated on every page by stills from the films. There are call out boxes with key words that are repeated in a simple glossary at the back of the book (each word is next to a little picture cue). It has an information book style and is not really a story. The glossary is great in the back of this one, as most of the words are simple common words that you might use in other stories - space, tail, wing, tool, hood, forest, spaceship and podracer. I think these are great books to develop vocabulary for science fiction writing for older kids in the juniors (sci-fi text for kids is a bit hit and miss).
On the back page there is a space to write your childs name and a place to tick that they have read the book. Me and my 5 year old like this book, it is simple and easy for him to understand.
