a board book about the great star ships
on December 17, 2009
"Spaceships" is fun for the youngest of Star Wars readers. The format is the most remarkable aspect of the title; this is a board book. The odds are with this book that it could survive a direct assault by a Star Destroyer. So there's little chance that the hands of a four year old will do any harm to the cardboard pages. As the title indicates, the book is a tour of the galaxy's most memorable star ships. There's the Star Destroyer, Millennium Falcon, TIE Fighter, X-Wing, B-Wing and the Grand Poobah of them all, the Death Star. In a day when most Star Wars books cover the entire saga, "Spaceships" is loyal to the original trilogy. Each of the six spreads show a featured ship and a sentence. Additionally, onomatopoeic sounds provide a written soundtrack. Perfect for youngsters, the pages are done in such a way that there are two textures. Each illustration is a blending of the regular page surface along with an area that's smooth and shiny. These dual textures invite touching. All in all, youngling readers will enjoy blasting off with "Spaceships."
