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.

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.

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.

Format: Hardcover
The Star Wars animated series, Clone Wars, is a breath of fresh air on TV these days. There are no snotty kids, no absentee parents, no terrible animation, just good quality, story and art. What else would you expect, however.

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?

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By The Delite Rancher VINE VOICE on November 17, 2010
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.

The Visual Guide - Ultimate Battles offers the Clone Wars fan a great look at images of the significant battles in Seasons I and II. This book is a follow-up to The Clone Wars: The Visual Guide. As is true with Mr. Fry's previous book, Ultimate Battles is loaded with shots from the series and explanations of the action. All of the main battles are shown, and significant sections of the book cover weapons, troops, and key characters.

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.

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.
