Jedi Academy | Jeffrey Brown
19 posts | 17 read | 2 to read
New York Times bestselling author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown takes readers to a middle school in a galaxy far, far away.... This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school--all told through one boy's comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away... Roan's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy--a school that he didn't apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now... This inventive novel follows Roan's first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too--like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force.

A cute #MiddleGrade book about a boy named Roan who wants to go to Pilot School but instead ends up at the Jedi Academy. He doesn't know how to use the Force and its a bit Harry Potter but set in a Galaxy Far Far Away.

LibrarianRyan I really liked this series. It was a bit much, but for a star wars family, it was perfect. 8mo

It‘s so nice seeing this guy becoming a more confident reader! He picked this book at the library and has been determined to read it himself. #raisingreaders

This was really cute. I don‘t normally read middle school books, but I thoroughly enjoyed this. I needed something fun and fluffy, and this was perfect. I‘m going to read the rest in the series. I definitely see my nephews loving this when they are older. 🌟🌟🌟🌟/5

TheBookKeepers I thought this book was great as well! Format reminded me a lot of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid (which I wasn‘t a fan of) but had better storyline and characters I thought! Glad you liked it too! 4y
PenguinInFlight @TheBookKeepers I didn‘t read Diary of a Wimpy Kid. My niece read the first one and wasn‘t really into it. She ended up reading something called “Dork Diaries” series that she LOVED, and I read some with her. It had the same type format, with letters, diary entries, pictures, etc. I thought this was a way more fun read, though. Mostly because Star Wars. ☺️ 4y
readinginthedark Jeffrey Brown is a fun writer! Have you read his other Star Wars books? 4y
PenguinInFlight @readinginthedark Not yet, but I plan to! I stumbled on this series when I was looking for something fun to read on Libby, and I really want to check out all his books now! ☺️ 4y

Snuggling with my hubby. He‘s watching StarCraft on Twitch, so I‘m reading the graphic novel I borrowed from Libby last night. It‘s so cute, I‘ve loved everything about it! I‘m about 66% through. This is just what I needed to get through my reading slump. #starwars #libby #graphicnovel

The last time I was in a book funk, a friend suggested reading graphic novels. (I think this isn‘t so much a book funk as it is being foggy headed from pain and pain meds.) This looks super cute, and I love Star Wars. I think I might have FINALLY found something! 🎉🙌🏻

Ruri_kaichou Oh no! I hope you feel better soon! Reading something light and fluffy is good way to go. ❤️ 4y
Elizabeth2 My son has loved these books! Enjoy! I hope it brings you out of your funk. 4y
PenguinInFlight @Ruri_kaichou thank you! ❤️I‘m on the mend, it‘s just going to be a bit of a slow process. 4y
PenguinInFlight @Elizabeth2 it‘s such a cute read. I‘m enjoying it. I needed something fun and fluffy, so this suits perfectly...and I like Star Wars. My husband is a huge Star Wars fan, so he got a kick out of me reading this. He peeked over tonight and said “Is that a Wookiee in a sweatband?! What are you reading?” 😂😂 4y

It's been a struggle to get my 8 year old son interested in reading. However, I'm a firm believer that anyone can love reading if you just find the right book. Well, I think I finally found the right thing for my kid. He's been reading for 50 min straight with no sign of stopping! :D

Simona 👍That's a good sign! 6y

I am part of a running community known as IR4 (www.whoirun4.com), a non-profit organization that pairs athletes of all levels and kinds with children and adults with physical, mental, and developmental special-needs… or children who are often in the shadow of their special-needs siblings.
My running buddy Shelby is turning 9 soon, and she loves Star Wars. I'll be sending this book to her along with some running swag!

Great children's book that showcases a young Padawan as he enters His first year of Jedi Academy. Hilarious and fast paced, this graphic novel features everything needed to get your kid interested in reading.
