Product Description

Review

I loved this book and will definitely be looking out for more by the same author. The idea is fresh and original and the potential for further stories in the series is unlimited. I'm very excited to see what comes next --The Bookbag --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Having read "Darth Vader & son" and "Vaders little princess" I had high hopes for this. But it just wasn't funny. Its the diary of a kid going to Jedi School, with only a few comics and other funny bits.

I love these!! They're just brilliant... even if you're only remotely into Star Wars. I have a number of Jeffrey Brown books... all well told, well illustrated... all fantastic for that commuter train Kindle read. Highly recommended.

Think of this as a sort of graphic-chapter-book, and I mean that in a very good way.

Mr. Brown has taken practically every important aspect of the Star Wars canon, written it in a style that would be interesting for and accessible to an early reader, illustrated it with very clever and apt illustrations, and wrapped it all up as a "school days" adventure that features a realistic and engaging hero.

Roan is crushed when he is denied admission to Star Pilot Academy, and then confused and intimidated when he later receives an invitation to attend the more prestigious but less well known Jedi Academy. The other students at the Academy were tapped when they were much younger, so Roan has to adjust as the new kid and the latecomer. The story embraces all of the conventions of middle school fiction - Roan makes friends and enemies, encounters bullies, has some scary teachers and some teachers he really likes, deals with homesickness and adjusting to school. There is some budding romance. There are some intrigues, and lots of school based events, (a dance, a light saber tournament, a science fair, field trips, an election).

The genius here is that everything is based on Star Wars. Yoda is basically the headmaster of the Academy. The teachers are characters from the various movies. Field trips are to the sites of Star Wars episodes. Students all come from worlds whose names you recognize. Our hero, Roan, is from Tatooine and is basically a stand-in for a Luke Skywalker type character. There are lots of inside jokes and references, so that you have both an engaging story that is open to a Star Wars newbie and an immersive and sly Star Wars compendium for really rabid fans.

I am a Star Wars fan but not interested in the book to be honest. It's aimed at children that show an interest in comics. The pictures are black and grey. It's printed on paper that has a recycled feel to it but that's not a bad thing. It doesn't feel cheap. The product was in perfect condition when it arrived.

Not sure who the supplier is but it arrived in good time and adequate packaging.

It is a present for my partner's Auntie who loves these books but I think it's mainly aimed at children.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this book for my 6 year old son. He looked at it, read it a little with mom and dad, and lost all interest. He loves star wars but could not seem to get into this at all. When I had a read of itn I found the story very weak and does not seem to pull in your interest. This is an adult opinion of a kids book of course but even in a kids book there should be a story to draw you in. The story is good enough but not engaging enough to keep the interest of a child.

This is so brilliant i cant even explain it.

WARNING SPOILERS ALERT!!!

Ok you can't not love this book. Roan is so hilarious. I dont know why but i love his ewok pilot comics and I just burst out laughing when they went on the field trip to Kashy… hang on. i just need to look up the spelling of this. Ok Kashyyk. It's not especially funny but it reminds me of myself.

OK SPOILERS ARE OVER!!!

If ypu love star wars then you will absoloutely love it. My dad likes it and he's 44 so that proves that star wars lovers of all ages will devour this book. A lot of people can relate to Roan and his experiences and that adds to the charm of the book. So, thats my review done and by the way some of it is written in like a comic book if you know what i mean.

I had some high hopes for this and it's okay. Not brilliant but not dreadful. You do have to be a Star Wars fan and you have to be an adult to get some of the humour, some of which is at the expense of the Star Wars universe. If you enjoy the Lego Star Wars shorts you'd probably like this.

My 8 year old loves these books. This is what he has to say about it:

"I love the books because they are really exciting and you never know what is going to come next. Some pages are also really funny and roughly the same things happen with the character as with me in school (but I don't learn how to use the Force at school, which is sad because it seems more fun than writing Geography reports)."
