This book is a follow-up to The Clone Wars: The Visual Guide.
David Pruette
My seven year old originally borrowed this book from our public library and we were so thrilled with it that we purchased the book.
Debra Rowand
Though it is above his reading level, it's full of 144 pages of photos that will hold his attention.

A new Star Wars convert, my five year old son received this as a gift for his birthday two months ago. Since then, it has rarely left his side, as he reads it constantly. Although the vocabulary is often over his head, the graphics, layout and textual narration are excellent, and continue to command his attention and stimulate his imagination. Note: the book is strictly limited to the Star Wars Clone Wars saga (and graphics/illustrations from the movie/tv series, not any of the 6 SW movies). A very well-done product.

The Visual Guide to the Clone Wars (based on the new animated film), is a remarkable book. Those who are familiar with the film, will find the book very easy to follow, and a delightful look into the film that goes at your pace.

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.

Format: Hardcover
"New Battlefronts: The Visual Guide" is a stunning addition to the pantheon of Star Wars literature. It is a visual companion to season two of the CGI imagined "Clone Wars." The book more or less chronologically follows the season. As with its season one predecessor, it starts and finishes with poetry set to iconoclastic imagery that plays off World War II style propaganda: "I remember a time . . . when Jedi were not . . . generals but peacekeepers." The book is a tour of the season's characters and situations. There's a spread on just about everybody including Senator Rush Clovis, Poggle the Lesser, the deserter Cut Lawquane, Dutchess Satine, Senator Bail Organa, the pirate Hondo Ohnaka and Aurra Sing. As with the show, the Mandalorian material is especially interesting. Each two page spread is a visually spectacular balance of on-screen summary combined with additional factoids. All in all, it is 128 oversized (11.2 x 11.2) pages of visual candy. For the padawan reader, "New Battlefronts" is a satisfying summary of the second season of Clone Wars.

This book is a wealth of great Clone Wars trivia for the ultimate little fan. It was a big hit and well worth the money. The illustrations inside the book and layout of the book is well done. Very happy with this purchase.

If you like the artwork of Star Wars the Clone Wars you'll love this. It's a great guide and my 10 year old who loves Star Wars really likes this. I think it's fantastic graphics, having grown up with Star Wars I really like it myself.
