Of course a few appear more than once, where their identity changed (Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, etc.). About the only omission are the individual Podracers, who (aside from the dastardly Sebulba) are all featured on one page. And some entries are on pages with a black, rather than white, background (and not necessarily signifying evil vs. good), which makes them a bit harder to read.
No matter; this is an indispensable reference to "Star Wars" fans, young and old. But it only applies to the six movies of the saga; characters from "Clone Wars" are featured in their own book, and characters from the "extended Universe" are not here, either. But if you want to know more about General Grievous, Sy Snootles or Zam Wesell, they're all in here!
I like that it's printed on high-quality paper and is hard covered. It makes it more durable when her little sisters want to read it. I like that it includes most of the Star Wars characters and gives both information about the character as well as a "data file"about them. Some of the main pictures of each characters are blurry, but that could be for different reasons.
This is a good book for any Star Wars lover, young or old. I have flipped through it to remind myself of some of the characters.
1. Its size. It's small enough for him to handle comfortably.
2. Very sturdy. Like most kids his age, he is less than gentle with his belongings, and the book has held up well.
3. Layout. The large character pictures grab his attention, and he is encouraged to read through the copious amounts of information to learn about the characters.
