The book is written in third-person, but in a way that makes it read as though someone is telling you the story instead of the normal detached narration seen in adult novels. The author was also able to captured K-2SO's character and speech pattern. Onomatopoeia is used for Chewie's growls and the various animals' sounds encountered throughout the book which can be hit and miss for me.
Besides Chewie and K-2, the book also introduces an original character named Mayvlin "Mayv" Trillick, a teenager from the planet Oktaro. Having been caught by Alinka Aloo (the daughter of Sim Aloo, one of the Emperor's advisors from Return of the Jedi) trying to steal back her people's most valuable book, Alinka forced her into helping claim the relic in exchange for the book. I am so-so about Mayv. Her dialogue can be exposition heavy at times and when in a stressful situation she will use exclamations from her native language. At first, I found them to be a nice piece of showing character and world-building but they eventually became more of a nuisance, especially since they all start with Oktaro. It is funny how I found Alinka, who only appears in a flashback near the beginning and at the end of the book, to have a more complete character than Mayv, who is a main character.
Overall, The Mighty Chewbacca in the Forest of Fear was an enjoyable read. It really captured the voice and character of Chewie and K-2 while expanding the non-Sith and Jedi Force mythology with the story of the Empress of Ushruu. Really, my main problem with the book is with the character of Mayv. She is not a bad character, just an okay one.
Chewie! All Chewie all the time. Sure, there have been many Han and Chewbacca books and now, a full-length film, but this one focuses solely on the big hairy dude. (Yes, I know there was a Chewie comic book series a couple years ago.)
Terrible tentacles and worms with hook hands! And each character has his or her own way of battling these creatures.
K2 from Rogue One! Y’know, the Empire’s security droid taken and reprogramed by the Rebels. Lots of great lines and some near-acrobatic feats.
Breaking the 4th Wall. I really enjoyed when the narrator spoke to the reader. Usually to check in about background info; these sections were excellent.
Mayv the Bounty Hunter/ Librarian. Another victim of the Empire who finds a kindred spirit in Chewbacca and his experiences on Kashyyyk.
Fantastic Illustrations. There’s five or six drawings by artist Andie Tong scattered throughout the book that really help the reader visualize the planet Ushruu and the monsters it holds.
I just really wish I spoke the wookie language, Shyriiwook, because the narrator refuses to translate any of the colorful language Chewie uses in the book!
Overall, a wonderful hunt, chase, and run adventure for one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe.

Han has got himself captured, and Chewie has been sent on a dangerous/suicide mission to get his release. joining him are a familiar re-purposed Imperial security droid from Rouge One on his own mission and young adventurer with her own reason for doing in this mission.
I have to say I love K2's dry wit I think Tom Angleberger got his dry delivery spot on. I like that Chewie got his time in the spotlight in this book. It emphasizes that he is not just the brawn of the pair but all his other skills and characteristics from being a great pilot to his loyalty and courage. The loyalty and camaraderie between people sent on missions like this really come through. Even if they do not like each other they have a healthy respect and bond with they other members of their team.
A good story a bit kiddie in places but good non the less. One thing that I did find disappointing is they are very few illustration in this book, and they few that are there are very similar, though the story does make up for it. Lots of short chapters a good easy read that adds to the Star Wars universe.
