Format: Paperback
This book is narrated by the Star Wars character C3PO, who introduces the reader to a number of the characters from Star Wars. The pictures are very good. The text was at just the right level for my 7-year old son. He was delighted to read it out loud to me, as he really wanted me to know more about the Star Wars characters he so dearly loves. This is a great price for a book many children will enjoy.

Format: Hardcover
Narrated by C-3PO, "What is a Wookiee?" takes the reader on a tour of the various types of characters found throughout the Star Wars universe. In addition to meeting robots like R2-D2 and the pit droids, the tour features creatures such as Jabba the Hutt, Sebulba and of course Wookiees. The book covers the entire sage, from episode I to VI. What "Star Pilot" (also by Laura Buller) did with machines, "What is a Wookiee?" does with George Lucas' characters. In terms of the reading level, the book is perfect for most first and second graders. Both the pictures and text are large for young readers. While some illustrations are from studio stills, the majority of images are from the films. Most pages feature a vocabulary word that is reviewed on the last page. "What is a Wookiee?" should be in every young Star Wars fan's library.

Looking at the title of this book, along with the photo, you'd assume that this book is about Wookies.

It's not.

Chewbacca gets one page.

That's right. One page.

Plus Jar Jar Binks is in it.

My kindergartner seemed a little more forgiving of this misdirection than I. But I can simply not recommend this book with such a misleading cover.

This is the 1st book that my Kindergardner read cover to cover, over and over. We were bored with Dick and Jane and I am Sam books this is a great way to share a childs interest with a childs education.

Format: Paperback
If you're seeking an authoritative source of information on Wookiees, I'd recommend you lookiee elsewhere. I would hazard that most average 5 year olds would be able to tell you more about Wookiees than the information about them which can be gleaned from this book.

Where do Wookiees come from- zilch. What do Wookiees eat- nada. What kind of "product" do Wookiees use to maintain their coats- if only.

Not counting the cover itself, there are only TWO total pages that even mention Wookiees. I should have known better when used copies of this book are starting at $0.01. C-3PO's somewhat mechanical delivery left something to be desired as well. Why would the narration not be done by Han Solo??

Horribly disappointing...

For an early reader who may not have seen the movie and who is too young to really sit through the movie, this is wonderful. It is a description of many of the characters in the movies with clear, large pictures and simple, non-scary descriptions. Very small book, be forewarned, but is cute and is a favorite.

I did ding it one star for the misleading title, but it's still another great book in the series. The description of the book tells you it's about lots of characters in the Star Wars universe and that's just what it is, Wookies aren't in it anymore than any of the others. I was a little disappointed, but I was kind of wondering how they were going to make a whole picture book on Wookies anyway, when the pictures are from movies and there is very little material other than a bunch of Chewbacca shots to pick from. Anyway...We got a bunch of these books to read to our 4 year-old and he LOVES them! A bonus for us is that they're also fun and interesting to read. The series-1 books are the best for us, it takes maybe 3-5 minutes to read (depending on how long he wants to look and talk about the pictures) and we'll usually do this and another book each night. All the books are very good but when you get into the series-3 & 4's they get to be quite a bit longer to read.

This book had very little information. It was not nearly enough for me to complete my CWNA: Certified Wookie Network Administrator Exam. If i don't pass, it's back to Tatooine for me!
