This is a great value for a visual reference of over 200 characters from the ongoing Clone Wars Animated Series. For the average cost of three action figures you get a full body image of every major character, clone trooper, droid, and alien that has played a role in this series along with a few quick facts from their respective story lines. Definitely a nice reference book for kids and fans of the series that might want to draw or create some fan comics of their own within this universe.

My little Star Wars enthusiast thinks this is something every kid should have. And it deserves a thousand stars.

Seriously, he practiced math facts every day on vacation in order to "earn" minutes of reading this book. This was a tremendous way to reward my little boy for a job well done.

I have recently watched Season One of The Clone Wars on DVD while, at the same time, reading The Official Episode Guide to see if I missed anything while I was watching. The DVDs are wonderful, and it has been great fun to watch the episodes again after seeing them originally on TV. Each episode includes a featurette showing director Dave Filoni and other key members of the production team talking about the development of the episode. All were very interesting. Also, a few of the episodes are presented as director's cuts, so they show some footage we have not seen before. Great fun. The package also includes a booklet showing drawings and pictures.

The Official Episode Guide is also very useful. Each episode is covered separately with a synopsis, pictures, background information, and lists of the cast, characters, weapons, and vehicles. I found the book to be helpful if you read about each episode after watching them on the DVD.

Then there is the Character Encyclopedia for Clone Wars. The book covers more than 200 characters and gives you a description, statistics, a picture, and specific background information for each. The characters are listed in alphabetical order so you can always look up a particular one you might be interested in. As is true with most Clone Wars items, the book has a great look to it.

I am pleased that The Clone Wars series has been successful enough to spawn all of the books and the DVDs that have been issued. The quality of the packaging has been excellent, and I am optimistic that we have a great deal more to look forward to.

Format: Hardcover
While this may be a great start for anyone just getting into the TV series or a young fan, it's really not as in-depth as I was hoping. Of course, it's not geared towards my age range, so that may have something to do with it. The pictures are very nice, and it did help jog my memory about certain characters/creatures that I had forgotten about (probably because they got so little screentime in the first place), so I will give it that. But my biggest complaint is that I think it was published too early. There's no mention of characters from season three onward; season three premiered in fall of 2010, the same year this book was released, so that explains that. If they had waited at least one more season before publishing this it would have been slightly better.

All in all, it's a decent little guide, but definitely not what I was hoping for in terms of an "encyclopedia".

Although this does cover pretty much every character in star wars clone wars season 1and 2, it only provides small factoids. Around 2 per character. My recommendation is to look characters up on the wookiepedia online for free.

Format: Hardcover
If you are a fan of the series and are a Star Wars nut like myself this is a must buy. Just about every character from the series has there own page. No Boba? Huh? I was hoping for more info on each, but for the price this is a good deal. They have a little blurb about the episode and their part. And that's about it. They only talk about 2 or 3 things each when it comes to their wardrobe/weapons/equipment. If you are looking for an in depth look into the characters from the series you might want to wait for another edition of this or the huge Star Wars Encyclopedia. But, like I said, if you are a huge Star Wars nut like me, order this as soon as you can. For this price it's a steal.

My son loves this book. He really likes the Clone Wars series. The book tells you about characters from season one and two. So just know it's limited.
It tells you the gender of the character, height of the character, whether they are allied to the Jedi or Sith, what species they are and their homeworld , who their friends are. You get a run down on weapons and the character's talents. Each page, has a box with that information listed next to an image of each character. Then also, there are small boxes that tell you interesting facts, for example, on Kit Fisto, it has a small box with a line to his tentacles that come out of his head. The box tells you that he can sense other's pheromones. Another box tells you that his green eyes are great for low light vision.
It also tells you the names of characters you may have been unsure of, like beasts and machines they ride.

More About the Author

I'm the author of The Jupiter Pirates series, published by HarperCollins. In the first book, Hunt for the Hydra, we meet Tycho, Yana and Carlo Hashoone. They're crewers above the privateer Shadow Comet, siblings and competitors. Each wants to be the next captain of their family's starship -- but only one of them will be chosen.

The Jupiter Pirates is part high-seas adventure and part space-age epic -- I've had a blast writing the series and can't wait to share it with people. Officially the Jupiter Pirates books are for kids 8-12, but readers far older than that will enjoy them too.

As for me, I'm a writer, editor, and occasional journalism consultant based in Brooklyn, N.Y, where I live with my wife Emily, my son Joshua and about a metric ton of baseball cards and Star Wars stuff. I've written more than two dozen Star Wars books and short stories for publishers including Random House, DK, Scholastic and Disney Books. Before striking out on my own as an independent writer, I spent more than 12 years at The Wall Street Journal Online, where I wrote the Real Time column about technology and co-wrote The Daily Fix, a daily roundup of great sportswriting. I co-write Faith and Fear in Flushing (www.faithandfearinflushing.com), a blog about the New York Mets, with my friend Greg Prince.

If that seems like an odd mix, well, I think so too. But one way or another, I've written or worked with writers nearly all my life. It's all I ever wanted to do, and I'm profoundly grateful that I've been able to do it.

Whether you're writing about a far-off galaxy, a nearby baseball team or the promise of technology, the path to becoming a successful writer is the same: Write every day, learn from other writers and from good editors, push your writing to make sure it's as clear and engaging as possible, and value every form of writing you get to do. And be nice.
