To help celebrate World Book Day my children have been reading the Star Wars Adventures In Wild Space Book Set from Egmont. Set in a galaxy far far away the books are written for junior readers either to read independently or have someone read to them.

The layout is simplistic and the use of vocabulary is descriptive but still easy enough for the children to understand.
An original Star Wars fiction series for children, The Adventures in Wild Space takes place in the period between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope. Star Wars fans can meet a whole host of new characters, including a new droid, CR-8R, and a new villain, Captain Korda.
The story begins when Milo and Lina’s parents are kidnapped by the villainous Captain Korda. They begin their quest to track down and find their missing parents. My 10-year-old daughter said she actually felt she was in the middle of the story, travelling through space.

Each character is easy to relate to and with the use of illustrations, helping you create the scene. My children love anything to do with Star Wars and they were not disappointed with the Star Wars Adventures In Wild Space Book Set from Egmont

Each book is roughly 160 pages long and each chapter depending on the reading speed of the child is approx 10-15 minutes worth of reading. So perfect for bedtime reading.

The Star Wars Adventures comes in a set of 5 books

The Snare
The Nest
The Steal
The Dark
The Cold

For any young Star Wars fans, they will love the new Star Wars Adventures In Wild Space book set from Egmont. It has everything from high speed chases in space, to finding out who you can trust.

And there you have it – a brother and sister trying to find out where their parents might be held, alone apart from a lizard-monkey called Morq and a grumpy robot called CR-8R, or Crater to his young owners. This adventure story starts full-tilt and rockets along without letting the pace drop, providing plenty of thrills and spills along the way.

While there isn’t a huge amount of in-depth characterisation, Milo and Lina are both appealing, showing courage and determination in the face of danger, while still badly missing their parents. They also argue with each other, which I really liked and thought it showed a nice slice of reality that children would recognise. There are also regular touches of humour, mostly involving the grumpy robot and monkey-lizard, which helped to lighten the mood in amongst the whizz-bang action and constant activity.

Scattered amongst the text are a few line illustrations which Oscar really appreciated and which he wanted to discuss, given they all invariably depicted yet another action scene. That said, the writing generally reads well, although there were more typos that I’m happy to see in a book aimed at newly independent readers.

Was the climax satisfying? Oh, yes, Oscar was genuinely excited and begged me to complete the book before he had to go home. While he was a bit disappointed that it ended on something of a cliffhanger, he was delighted that we had the second book and immediately asked me if I could get the rest of the series. Which I’ve done. This isn’t beautifully crafted prose, but the setting and characters have struck a chord with someone who hasn’t been all that keen to listen to most of my reasonably extensive library of children’s books. I’ll take that, while mentally blessing the bright spark who reckoned there would be a number of boys who’d be delighted to once more get immersed in a Star Wars adventure particularly aimed at them.

Format: Paperback
The Adventures in Wild Space books are suitable for key stage two as it contains more words and lots of cliff hangers and suspense-ended chapters. My son enjoys reading them as he finds them easy to understand. He was able to finish the book in an hour. He loves reading about how they set out to find their parents. There is a lot of action and excitement.

My son aged 8 is a huge Star Wars fan and enjoyed reading this book. The language is simple and he found it very interesting. I would definitely recommend this book to other little boys. The illustrations also serve to break the monotony of text which is brilliant.
