" 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."

"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."

"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."
"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."
"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'."-

"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."
" 7 out of 10 stars. Released with perfect timing for Father's Day, this is a great little present for the Rebel or Imperial father in any family."

While the book is clearly not representative of the true father-daughter relationship these two had, there are plenty of humanizing moments that really make you connect to the characters in the book, and might even teach a valuable lesson in parenting (or two).
If you or someone you know is really into SW (and especially if they have a daughter), I'd recommend this book. It's really lighthearted and fun for anyone and everyone familiar with the series.
This would be a fun gift for adult Star Wars fans. Not sure if it would be appropriate with little kids as some of the humor is more appropriate for older kids (like 10 and up). Some of the pages show Leia dating Han Solo or wearing her slave outfit, which some parents might object to small children looking at. No nudity or profanity or anything like that at all. Generally good fun!
Had not planned to get the book since I have no children,, but did so since I could meet the author and get it personalized.
Enjoyed that book ... you can read it in about ten minutes, but the illustrations are great so I took my time.
When I heard he was doing another book, I was not in a rush to have it as soon as it came out, but I stuck it on my watch list and I grabbed it. when price came down to around $8. Good value, another good book by Brown. Heard on a podcast he has other books planned, so I will probably check those out when they come out too.
Only reason not to give to kids is if they DO NOT KNOW THE BIG REVEAL from end of Empire Strikes Back and you want to keep them spoiler free, but otherwise I would get this for my nieces and nephews and little cousins.
We bought the Boy's version of this book and she loved it. Naturally, we bought this book for her thinking should would like it as well. Having not watched all of the Star Wars movies, I was worried she wouldn't get all of the puns.
After a week or two reading this book to her before bed, she found herself glued to the screen when we all watch Star Wars again. Go figure, she kept relating the movie to her book. For me that's totally absurd! But it's Great!
Brilliant idea writing a book for kids making Darth Vader look like a decent guy. Takes the Fear out of his character to help kids adapt to the movies.
Genius! Thanks Jeff!!!
