Format: Paperback
The release of Star Wars books for young people has always been related to a theatrical promotion. In a world that has a seen all six films, a new wave of DK Readers is much appreciated. It gives us comfort that even though the movies are finished, the Star Wars experience isn't completely 'done.' As the title suggests, "A Queen's Diary" looks into the life of Queen Amidala of the Naboo. In the beginning of her diary, Amidala discusses what it's like to be queen. We get to find out who she is as a person as she describes how she feels about her position. Eventually, the book discusses the time when the Trade Federation invaded her planet. Queen Amidala met some Jedi and a boy named Anakin Skywalker. Eventually, she and her people are victorious. The diary ends by the Queen wondering if she'll ever see that Anakin boy again. As with many of these books, Padmé Amidala is the token Star Wars character for girls. As in "Queen in Disguise," she is a humble heroine. Despite depicting a great role model for girls, this title is not 'girly.' The feminine dynamics simply add some balance to the usual testosterone that should make this appeal to both the guys and gals. "A Queen's Diary" offers some redundancy in the Star Wars pantheon. It is remarkably similar to 2000's "I Am a Queen." It also has overlap with Queen Amidala's "Episode I: Journal." Despite such overlapping, it is forgivable when considering that the other books mentioned are all out-of-print.Read more ›

This is an illustrated full color children's book. It's not nearly as violent as the other reviewer makes it seem. At 13 cents, it's definitely not a trap!

Format: Paperback
This specific title is considered a Level 3 - Reading Alone Dk Reader. It contains more complex sentence structure, information boxes, a comprehensive index, as well as an alphabetical glossary. This title will recall another episode of the Star Wars The Clone Wars as your readers join the amphibious warrior Ackbar and his fellow squidheaded militants in an underwater battle on his aquatic homeworld of Mon Calamari. If you have a child who enjoys watching the Star Wars The Clone Wars but is reluctant in reading, I strongly suggest that you consider the DK Readers books based on Star Wars and Star Wars The Clone Wars. I have found from my own experience as a parent that having books that spark the interest in the child will be move effective in encouraging reading than only putting them books that you think they will like.

Based on the title, I expected this book to be about the frienship of R2D2 and C3PO. Instead it is a kind of commentary on the various friendships and pairings (of a more romantic nature when it got to Han & Leia). Not quite what I wanted to read to my 3 year old nephew.

Our grandson is crazy about star wars books. We enjoy getting them for him. The content is violent, but it does motivate a child to read.
