Review

"Goodnight Darth Vader by Jeffrey Brown is a great gift book for the Star Wars fan in your life. I think it will delight anyone with a healthy sense of humor. For parents like me, it means I get to read a book to my son that we both enjoy instead of it being a one sided affair. It probably also means I read to him even more, which is a great thing. I recommend picking this one up. I have the other books in the series too but I think this is my favorite by far."
-MakingStarWars.net

"Stars Wars lovers and their children will giggle as Darth Vader attempts to coax his twins - Luke and Leia, of course - to sleep in Goodnight Darth Vader by Jeffrey Brown. The rhyming book features fantastic illustrations and imagined scenarios about what the Star Wars universe looks and sounds like at bedtime."
Savvy Sassy Moms

"I would like to start with a small request.I would like Jeffrey Brown to continue to make "Star Wars" books..forever. He started with "Darth Vader and Son" and then "Vader's Little Princess" and now "Goodnight Darth Vader", which is the best of them all. ... If you have kids, this is a must purchase.if you don't and still love "Star Wars", this is still a must purchase."
-MediaMikes

"Goodnight Darth Vader quite simply is the perfect bedtime book for your youngest kids. It's filled with gorgeous artwork and lots of scenes of the various characters of Star Wars getting ready for bed. This 64 page hardcover won't take long to read, but will hopefully put your children in just the right mindset to fall asleep. And for us older Star Wars fans, there's some nice nods to the films."
-Roqoo Depot

"Goodnight Darth Vader is fun for the whole family."
-Family Choice Awards

"Episode Eight P.M.: Bedtime." Darth Vader may rule the galaxy, but that doesn't mean he can get his twins, Luke and Leia, to go to sleep. They beg him to read them a bedtime story, and the tale takes readers across the Star Wars universe, incorporating characters and references from all the movies, including Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It is adult fans who are most likely to know who Ahsoka is, to be amused by baby Han and Chewie unable to sleep in "this wretched hive of scum and villainy," or to laugh at Admiral Ackbar's line, "It's a bedtime snack!" And thanks to the overall silly content, even if little ones don't catch all the references, they're likely to get a kick out of this, too. The pages are filled with Brown's cartoony and detailed art, giving readers and listeners alike a lot to enjoy...A perfect choice for nerdy parents."

About the Author

Jeffrey Brown is an Eisner Award–winning artist and writer of Darth Vader™ and Son, Vader's™ Little Princess, Kids Are Weird, and numerous graphic novels and comics. A lifelong Star Wars fan, he lives in Chicago with his wife and two sons.

More About the Author

After growing up in Michigan, a 25-year-old Jeffrey Brown moved to Chicago in 2000 to pursue an MFA at the School of the Art Institute. By the time he completed his studies, he had abandoned painting and started drawing comics seriously. His first self-published book, Clumsy, appeared seemingly out of nowhere to grab attention from both cartoonists and comics fans. Established as an overly sensitive chronicler of bittersweet adolescent romance and nonsense superhero parody, Brown's current direction remains split between more autobiography examining the minutiae of everyday life and whatever humorous fiction he feels in the mood for. His most popular works include Clumsy, Unlikely, AEIOU, and Every Girl is the End of the World For Me, comprising the so-called "Girlfriend Trilogy" and its epilogue. More recently his autobiographical work has included Little Things and Funny Misshapen Body. His parody The Incredible Change-Bots, the Ignatz Award winning I am going to be small and humorous cat book Cat Getting Out Of A Bag all stand out amongst his humor work, while his Sulk series continues to take on a variety of subjects with satire. Jeffrey's work has appeared in a host of anthologies from McSweeney's to The Best American Comics, as well as mainstream books like The Simpson's Treehouse of Horror and Marvel's Strange Tales. His original artwork has been exhibited in New York, Paris, and Chicago. Brown has been featured on NPR's This American Life and even created a short animated music video for the band Death Cab For Cutie. He lives in Chicago with his wife and son.

It's worth mentioning that this book include character from the the prequels, clone wars and the original trilogy, which is very cool.

We have 'Darth Vader and Son' and 'Vader's Little Princess' which I love. They both tie in parenting with movie references. This book has a different Star Wars character on each page with a sentence - that sometimes rhymes - about each character going to sleep. I believe there are only 2-3 pages that actually deal with Darth Vader putting Luke and Leia to bed. I was disappointed.

This is basically a Goodnight book in the world of Star Wars, Jeffrey Brown's style. I like it as a Goodnight book, but there are better in this market. It also works as a Star Wars book that you can peruse for a chuckle. This is a could-have if your kid already love Star Wars characters, you are a fervent Star Wars collector or you like Jeffrey Brown art.

Goodnight Darth Vader is a departure of previous instances such as Darth Vader and Son or Jedi Academy. Indeed, this is a book intended to be read to your kid or with your kid to put him in the mood for sleep. Therefore, there is no Star Wars action on it.

SPOILERS :)

The book starts with Darth Vader trying to get Leia and Luke to sleep and ends with Darth Vader, Luke and Leia falling asleep and the mandatory goodnight to each of them. What is in between is a collection of various scenes (I counted 26) where characters from the Star Wars universe are going to sleep presented within two pages and a rhyme on each. Sometimes the rhyme doesn't work, but the art remains interesting. It's worth mentioning that this book include character from the the prequels, clone wars and the original trilogy, which is very cool.

So overall, your milage may vary. I like this book for what it is. However, for a quick chuckle, I prefer Darth Vader and Son or Vader's Little Princess.

This book is adorable! And so cheesy. I got this for hubby to read to our son because he loves Star Wars and we also have Darth Vader and Son. The artwork is adorable, and the rhyming is clever - a definite favorite for both father and son.

I got two of Jeffrey Brown's Starwars books, "Vader and Son" and Vader's little Princess, and love this continuation. If I ever had children and want to get them started off of right with Star Wars, this book would be great to read to them and get them familiar with the Star Wars Universe. I love the illustrations in the book and just how many characters are mentioned in it whither they are minor parts in the movie like Sebulba, the pod racer in episode one or someone major like Han Solo. All of the characters are trying to get to bed in the book and it's hilarious to see how each one tries to do that.

Mom and I love this book! I purchased "Vader's Little Princess" to give to my dad as a Father's Day present, which was also adorable, but I flipped through this one and could imagine myself reading this to my future children or maybe one of my little cousins =) It just gives you a nice warm feeling while reading it and you can't help but smile at the cuteness of our favorite Star Wars characters nodding off to sleep. Can't wait to give this one to my dad as either part of his Christmas gift or Father's Day gift. He will surely love it.

After the brilliance of his previous Vader books, I expected much more from this. Perhaps too much. It doesn't have the humor-for-kids-and-grown-ups balance down pat like the others, and frankly, it doesn't have the humor of the others. Call it a stretch. I chuckled a couple of times, but I don't think we'll be returning to it like we do his others.

Jeffrey Brown has done it again. This is a great addition to his star wars kids books. This one is a great bedtime read for fans of the wars, even if you aren't reading it to a child, it makes for pleasant dreams in the dreamland galaxy. I highly suggest this book for all star wars fans, parents and kids.
