A Fabulous Selection of Star Wars Books to win

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.

    It’s not a new tale, but one that is classic. The story is simple enough to appeal to all people, but complex enough to keep the audience interested. It is also timeless, since it is set in another universe, so it never loses relevance.
