"I know Jeffrey Brown's Vader and Son was a big success because everyone to whom I showed it, loved it. However, as the father of a 4-year-old girl I'm looking forward even more to Vader's Little Princess. Maybe there'll be a cartoon about little Leia inexplicably belting out 'Call Me Maybe'."-
- Comic Book Resources
"Heartwarming is a word bandied about a bit much, to the point where it has lost currency. So let me be clear here that I am not using it lightly. Vader's Little Princess is as heartwarming as it is hilarious, with the power to believably cast one of cinema's all-time great villains as a believable, fallible, embarrassed and embarrassing Dad. This book is equal parts love letter to Star Wars and tribute to the wonder, emotions, and trials of parenthood...Both funny and touching, Vader's Little Princess shows again that Jeffrey Brown is as good at making this kind of book as he is the autobiographical, indie comix for which he was once better known. Not to be missed."
"Have an intergalactic storytime with your mini Padawan. Check out the amusingly clever Vader's Little Princess"
"Vader's Little Princess is one of those books that had me turning to my husband after every page and announcing, 'This is so going to be you in a few years!' Darth Vader calling up warm and fuzzy feelings of parental camaraderie in the face of raising a daughter? That's what makes this book so awesome...This is a hilarious and surprisingly insightful take on fathers and daughters. I felt for Vader a little bit by the end."
"Vader's Little Princess is an imaginative book that you won't want to miss"
- Lansing State Journal
"Vader's Little Princess is a perfect book to give to a little geek girl, as artwork is fun to look at, and the words easy to read for young readers. Together with Darth Vader and Son, these two little books belong on any nerd's shelf, and Star Wars fans are missing out if they don't pick up a copy of each."
"Darth Vader and Son was so successful and superb, that the next book Vader's Little Princess has hit stands this week to much rejoicing from fans. Following a similar theme to the first book, Vader's Little Princess focuses on the relationship between Darth Vader and Leia, as she goes through her 'rebellious' teens. Both Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess are...definitely worth the Imperial credits."
" The joys, frustrations, and awkward moments are all played out with a lot of truth, and adding the Dark Lord of the Sith being the parent is just a delightful twist...It's a delight to see the Dark Lord of the Sith dealing with a feisty teenager, and parents and kids will immensely enjoy this book for Father's Day and every day of the year."
School Library Journal
"If this wasn't a Star Wars book, I'd still buy it, because Jeffrey Brown is great. But it is also a Star Wars book, and a sequel at that. Brown's funny, touching, and incisive view of parenthood under the guise of a pop culture dalliance is worth your time and money, and I can't wait to place it next to its predecessor on the shelf."

"Leading the Galactic Empire is cake compared to raising a teenage girl. A follow-up to the best-selling Darth Vader and Son, this sweet, funny graphic novel imagines Darth Vader's fatherhood trials and tribulations with a coming-of-age Leia."
"if anyone wants to buy me a Mother's Day gift. I'm just saying. This would be perfect."
- Game Informer Magazine
"When Vader stares down Princess Leia asking "What exactly is it that you do?" Brown captures the impenetrability of knowing one's parents. Sounds like a stretch, perhaps. And yet his "Vader" books capture the everyday push-pull between parents and kids - oppressor and rebel, you might say - so thoughtfully and cleverly, the 'Star Wars' stuff recedes at times."
- Chicago Tribune
"We can tell you that it's seriously cute.

"This small collection of drawings will delight any Star Wars fan."

"This is a must-have book for any Star Wars fan"
"Last year, talented artist Jeffrey Brown delivered a massive hit with his charming re-imagining of the relationship between the Dark Lord of the Sith and his four-year-old son Luke Skywalker. Now, he repeats his success with another illustrated outing focusing on Darth Vader and his daughter Princess Leia. The cover, for example, shows the Star Wars villain having to sit through a toy tea party with Leia and her stuffed Ewok. Throughout the book, the put-upon dad has to suffer through many of his daughter's annoying teenage demands, from dating undesirables to sitting through a horrible ballet performed by Jar Jar Binks. Especially wonderful is a wistful one where the Sith master gets misty remembering how sweet and innocent Leia used to be when she was a little girl. Chronicle has also published a must-have Postcard edition of Darth Vader and Son ($9.95). The two volumes make thoughtful gifts for all the Star Wars fanatics in your life-or anyone who grew up loving MAD magazine's clever spoofs of pop culture icons."
"Jeffrey Brown's new book of Star Wars-inspired cartoons is a must-have for any fan. "
-USA Today's Pop Candy
"Jeffrey Brown has once again done the impossible - he has proven that Star Wars-based comedy can be fresh, irreverent and deeply funny. Whether or not you have (or want) kids of your own, this is essential reading."
"It's delightful. As the father of two girls, I can relate to Vader's frustrations and sometimes helplessness in the face of a strong-willed daughter. Sometimes, the Force just isn't enough."
"It isn't always all about Luke. For Star Wars fanatics, a hilarious look at Darth Vader raising a pint-sized Princess Leia-and all the parenting trials (saying no to the metal bikini, for one) that go with it."
- Real Simple
"If you're a 'Star Wars' fan, a parent, or both, Vader's Little Princess will speak to you, reassuring you that even if you had complete mystical mastery over The Force and the awe and respect of legions of stormtroopers -- being a parent is still the most daunting and rewarding task of all."

This is a collection of cartoons of Darth Vader spending quality time with his little girl, Princess Leia. From Leia as a very small girl to Leia as an attitude and angst ridden teen, Vader has to deal with the complexities of fathering a girl.
I feel his pain. I liked the ones where Vader is holding back his first reaction to keep from hurting his daughter's feelings, or where he is patient with her when he really doesn't want to be. But the ones where Leia introduces her boyfriend, an adolescent Han Solo are side-splitting.
An excellent gift for any nerd dad who needs reassurance that what he does for his daughter is normal.
Edward M. Van Court
Overall I'd say that "Vader's Little Princess" is a good title, but it's failure to grasp the subtleties of being a father to little girls causes it to fall short of the greatness that the previous title held.
It didn't dawn on me until he was drawing that it was actually Jeffery Brown who I was talking to the whole time. He drew in a little Leia with a nice personal message for my daughter Mayalis. It was an fun experience.
Great book, great stories, awsome writer!
Star Wars fans ...buy this book !
It arrived last week, and we read it together right away.
It's a cute book with very good illustrations. The text is a little choppy with a bit of a rough flow. However, my daughter really likes it.
