The art is taken from the film, and 'panels' are inserted (and even numbered) so readers can follow the plot scene by scene. It's almost like this is a sophisticated storyboard for Clone Wars that took on a life of its' own. With the book, various elements in the film can be explained on a visual level, and inside jokes like 1138 can be got by savvy fans. (Think THX 1138).
Unlike many visual guides, this one weighs in at 144 pages of pure digital animation joy. Watching the film, I appreciated it, but missed some of the subtle plot nuances. This time, I got them.
The back of the book says it well. "A plan is only as goos as those who see it through". Perhaps this is a reference to the Scorcerors Apprentice, "Finish What you Start".
Either way, the Clone Wars rocks.
Mr Fry has produced a book that is ideal for kids aged 5-70 who love Star Wars. The text is aimed at a younger age level, but the graphics and additional information is welcome. I have not seen many of the Clone Wars episodes, but thank DK for such a volume that provides pertinent information on them.
The graphics are drawn from the series, and the factoids are suitable. It is easy to tell this book 'suffers' from tight editing. (ha!)
With Clone Wars a hit on TV, and books like this, it will be around for a long time.
Kudos. Does this mean that volume 2 will be out next year?
As you would expect, the book is heavily visual, and the illustrations are outstanding. You can ponder at length many of the scenes that you have watched on the TV show. The presentation of the material in the book is excellent, and the quality is first-rate.
If you like Clone Wars, you are certain to enjoy this book.
