Format: Hardcover
In picture book form, "The Battle Begins" is a retelling of "the Clone Wars" film. The story opens with a good introduction that explains the role of the Jedi and the origin of the Clone Wars. The story begins with the Battle of Christophsis, where Anakin Skywalker gets his new Padawan, Ahsoka. Afterwards, the battle moves to Teth in the hopes of retrieving Jabba the Hutt's son. The reader is introduced to sub-plots like the Padme and Ziro the Hutt thread. After the fight with Ventress, Anakin and Ahsoka fly to Tatooine. After some bonding, the Jedi and Padawan eventually return the Huttlet to Jabba, but not before facing additional dangers. The 48 page book covers all of the significant plot elements. In terms of the text, it is on a third or fourth grade reading level. The writing quality is good. Beginning readers will appreciate the large amount of white space that surrounds Rob Valois' text. The title features many high quality illustrations, all lifted from the film. In short, this book is eye candy. A visually interesting choice was made about the graphic layout. On one hand, "The Battle Begins" is a conventional picture book. On the other, the illustrations are put together in a quasi-graphic novel format. Being part traditional picture book and part comic book gives the book a special appeal. For those who didn't watch the film or those who'd like to relive it, "The Battle Begins" retells the "Clone Wars" story.

The book is in a rectangle, slightly over-size shape. Annoying maybe for placing on a bookshelf with other books, but while reading with my son shows a certain theatrical aspect that doesn't come across in other Star Wars books. Let's face it, I purchased it, but my six year-old son is the one who's going to challenge himself to read it and marvel at the pictures. So it is a perfect choice/tool in that respect. The pictures, by the way, are a little glossy. I find it gives the book a little extra in the quality department, even if you have to adjust it under lights from time to time to avoid the glare. I love that he loves it and wants to look at it on his own without my help.

I got this book for my brother-in-law and new little nephew for Christmas and am excited to give it to them. I think it's really cool that there are Star Wars books made specially for little kids!
