Star Wars: A Scanimation Book: Iconic Scenes from a Galaxy Far, Far Away...
This was bought for my 7 year old grandson. I purchased it because I had also bought this author's other 3 scanimation books, Waddle, Gallop and Swing for his 3 year old brother. The first 3 books were excellent and very unique. My grandson's older brother even got a kick out of looking at them. These books are made so that when you turn the page and move it back and forth the pictures actually move. These books should be considered board books since the pages are thick and cannot be bent or creased. Based on the above I decided to purchase the Star Wars Scanimation book by the same author. I was somewhat disappointed when it arrived. First of all the pictures are not that clear and most of them look like moving blobs. There is no story but instead the book contains quotes from the different Star Wars movies. If a child has not seen the movies the quotes mean nothing and the moving blobs mean even less. I would highly recommend buying this authors first 3 scanimation books that I listed above. This one cannot be compared to the others when it comes to quality. Very big disappointment.
