Star Wars: A New Hope Junior Novel has just been released in time for Star Wars 40th anniversary.
According to my son it is ‘brilliant , really good, makes you not want to put it down!’
I have to say it makes me feel extremely old to realise that Star Wars is 40 years old.
I was just 6 when it first came out and probably a little young to go and see it at the cinema, so I didn’t actually see it for a number of years. I did however spend endless break times at school being Luke Sky Walker and having stick fights with Darth Vader. And oh how I longed to look like Princess Leia and begged my mum to do my hair like hers. Once I discovered the gorgeous good looks of Harrison Ford I was even more smitten with Star Wars.
My OH adores the films and could not wait to introduce my son to them. We bought him a collection of the movie one year for Christmas and he literally watched one a day till he was done.
It is amazing to think how Star Wars has lasted in terms of popularity and how many fresh audiences it has reached.
I guess it has just been too good not to pass on!
The books are great, so engaging and well written and are aimed at 8+.
The atlas is just fantastic and my son was completely enthralled with it and has shown it to everyone!
My daughter has never seen a Star Wars movie… she’s more into Disney and comedies about dogs BUT she is a massive reader and she was just too tempted by this books. And…she loved them and is now hugely keen to see the films.
How fabulous is that! A brilliant way to introduce a new genre and an absolute Classic to an unwilling 9 year old.
