This is a sort of field guide to the various monsters of the Star Wars galaxy, featuring favorites like the rancor, wampa, and sarlacc from the original trilogy, plus an assortment of creatures from the prequel trilogy and Clone Wars.
The book presents the natural history of the monsters along with summaries of their big moments in the films, plus a variety of special features like maps, charts, and comparisons.
I've found with a lot of DK books that the editing can be spotty in places. Parts of this felt thrown together, and there were places that seemed overly repetitive.
That being said, one area where DK really shines is in the use of graphics. The incorporation of film images along with the inventive charts and maps really helped to liven this up.
There was enough detail in the descriptions to satisfy fans who are looking to learn some more in-depth background beyond what the movies give. The summaries of movie plot points are kept short so as not to become tedious to those who already know the stories.
This would make a handy supplement for roleplaying gamers using the Star Wars Galaxy as a setting, and it's a fun read for young fans.
