Format: Hardcover
Ok, this a very simple book more aimed at very young fans who are learning to read really or have learnt to read and want to be independent, the art work is very nice, the story is a very simple telling of the war between the Autobots & the Decepticons and why they come to earth.

The character designs are based upon the successful figurine line of Transformers known as robot heroes (basically the models that move about a little and are design to look really cute but not Transform).

That is all I can really say about this book, if you're a adult fan of TF, it's a relatively quick read, this best suited to younger fans and is told by Optimus prime. I hope that helps you in where or not to buy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction for your kids to the G1 Transformers universe! 25 Jun. 2010
By Ragamuffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you're a Dad who loves Transformers and wants to introduce them to your kids, buy this book! This is an awesome book for young children, ages 3-5, and is is all about introductions: you learn about who the Autobots and Decepticons are, how the Transformers left Cybertron and crashed on earth, the fight for energon, and who some of the major players are on both sides. My kids are 2 1/2 and they love just looking at the pages while I read.

This is an IDW Comics publication, so the art style is defintely G1 (Generation 1, aka, the origional 80s animated show), however, all of the Transformers are drawn in a "superdeformed" style, so they all look a little short and over-proportioned. It's a little odd, but not unlikable.

One side note, if you fondly recall the original cartoon, you will probably be asking yourself: "Who is this "Drift" character that is introduced as an Autobot? I don't remember him?" You are remembering correctly: Drift was NOT part of the original G1 Transformers, and was a character recently created in the main comic books storyline, and who has been shoehorned into the G1 continunity. That said, he's a pretty good character. He uses swords instead of guns and transformers into an import racer. He's basically a Ninja, Ex-Decepticon with a dark past but a heart of gold (and my son loves him for it).

Unfortunately, as in the G1 tradition, the book introduces some unnamed human kids near the end who are supposed to be "friends" with the Autobots. I guess this is meant to appeal to children, but personally, I dislike mixing humans with my giant robots! However, my kids like pointing them out and relating to them I guess.

I highly recommend this book, and have already bought one other copy for my god-son.
