This book has many problems. I will be sending mine back to Amazon as soon as I find my packing tape.
1: The "amulet" itself. From the cover illustration, I figured it would be the forehead-ornament on the black feathered costume which is featured prominently. Not so: the amulet is a lump of black, with bronzey ropes across it. The amulet opens like a locket. It is the ugliest piece of plastic jewelry I've seen in a long time.
2: The plot. I'd hoped that the story would be worthwhile. It is not. Amidala realizes her amulet is missing, she and a handmaiden go to look for it, they find it and return. No adventures. No uplifting tale. No additional background to the movie.
The only thing worthy about this "book" is the box that it comes in, which is pretty and would make a fairly decent 'secret box' for a child. But those are easy to come by or to make yourself.

Short sweet story about her amulet and even comes with one in the box, so as you read it to your little girl she can hold on to it as her own.

Precious idea for little girls. For a collector of the Star Wars EU.... sure get it anyway.

By fist on December 26, 2011
Format: Hardcover
When I first got this book I expected it to be like one of the small paperbacks in the Jedi Apprentice series; small, short, but still good. I didn't realize just how short it was! Nevertheless, I still had high hopes for it, me loving Padmé and all. Unfortunately, it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. [author:Julianne Balmain|18358] didn't seem to know the character of Padmé very well. She seemed a little off the whole book and Balmain made it seem like Padmé and Amidala were two different people, which made absolutely no sense.

The story was boring, with no emotion, no excitement. She loses the amulet, Padmé and her handmaiden look for it and find it, the end. The amulet is an ugly locket-type thing. In another review it's described as a lump with ropes around it, and that's just what it is.

Maybe this book could be enjoyable for other people, but to me it was a big disappointment.
