This was purchased as a birthday present for a 7-year old grandson and was a real hit not only with him but also his brothers and his father! However,I now know far more "interesting facts" than I need to about Star Wars characters as he is keen to share. The real bonus from my point of view is that he has read and re-read it with relish. Even though he has needed help with some of the vocabulary it has not put him off. Everything a good reference book should be.

I bought this book for my son who is almost 6 and a lot into Star Wars. He really likes it. It answers a lot of his questions. Each page is devoted to one character with photos, history and description. It is very nicely illustrated and it includes "everybody" as he says! I can only say I wish I had this book when I was his age.

My son is 5 and a massive star wars fan. This book is perfect for him to look up his favourite characters from the films. Only complaint is that it doesn't include characters from the Clone Wars cartoons but we knew that before buying it. Great price and fast delivery.

A great reference book. It even gives names to characters I didnt know had names/lives or histories. My 5 year old son is obsessed with star wars, and he is a keen reader and loves going through this over and over and over and over again.

Great book... The hardback really makes it feel like a life long companion.

It covers all the films from 1 to 6

I have purchased two of these encylopedias - I have two nephews who are huge Star Wars fans, I purchased the first one as a xmas present for nephew number one, he was over the moon! I had to take it off him so he could eat his xmas dinner! The second one was for nephew number two's 30th birthday, as he lives over 200 miles away, I had the book delivered to his home address gift wrapped with a personal message, he rang me on his birthday to say he'd received his gift and he was delighted! He did get a little distracted whilst talking to me, I could hear him turning the pages!! I found it very easy to place the orders, and being able to have it gift wrapped and sent to the recipient was an added bonus. I recommend this book for all budding (and fully-fledged) star wars fans. It was very reasonably priced (a lot of star wars memorabilia can be quite expensive)and worth every penny for the joy it brought.

Two days later he has not managed to put it down. His only sense of confusion is that he had no idea there were so many characters.

It is an encyclopaedia, if you are a Star Wars fan, young or old, this is the book for you. Absolutely superb. The illustrations are excellent, the character descriptions and life history detailed.

I will say that some character names are a little bit on the dodgy side, if you have the book you may understand, and I had no idea a smuggler called Chaz owned a spy droid.

Excellent book, excellent value and a must if you are a fan-droid.
10/10.

I absolutely love the Star Wars Films and I wish I'd had this book when I first watched it. The main thing I found confusing when I watched it was all the characters names and what their role is in the story etc. This book really helped process the story and give the characters a lot more depth, and some things in the book you would have never known about in the films.

The page layout is very clear and easy to get the overall idea of a character. I even let my young sister read it and she loves it aswell!

This book is also very good value for money, and is a must have for Star Wars fans. Buy it now!

This book is fantastic value for money. I bought it for a child with autism who has a real hunger for facts and he is still interested in it months later, which is unusual for him with a book as he usually remembers everything he has read and so is rarely inclined to read something twice. As another reviewer said, it's great for children to learn how to use a reference book. Anytime he comes across a new character or machine, he loves to refer back to this. It contains so much information! Great purchase!

I wanted to get this, so I could expand my knowledge of star wars, and now that is possible because this book has a very large amount of information for each character that is represented. The book has a very nice and simple style; one character per page, with info and stats about each character, e.g: the characters home planet, affiliation, height, etc. But really this book is a must get, great, nicely presented book, with characters from episodes 1 to 6.
