I‘m really enjoying these. Just the lighthearted fare I needed this past week. I love the way they are re-written with just enough comedy and action for kids, but yet never deviate from the original story we love so much. I especially enjoyed the added Yoda stories and lessons, the for kids Jedi lessons interspersed, and finishing it yesterday just before hearing the news of Peter Mayhew‘s passing seemed so...perfect, in a way. (Cont. Below)

Riveted_Reader_Melissa ...That character he created, and brought to life, was just as warm, feisty, and fierce on audiobook as on film. Who knew so much could be conveyed by growls alone....he will be missed. 3y
Christine Really enjoyed reading these aloud with my kiddo! 3y

And it‘s interspersed with these little kid friendly Jedi lessons, that cover things like concentrate, meditating, being aware of your surroundings, and this one....venturing outside your comfort area, which falls appropriately right before Luke lands on Dagoba.

My Star Wars trilogy in all their nekkid glory! Aren‘t the gorgeous? I love that Princess Leia is on the cover of one but neither Han Solo or Luke Skywalker got a cover. So it‘s an even split for once, one woman, one man & one alien Jedi master. Awesome!🙌🙌🙌 #usetheforceluke #thesearentthedronesyourelookingfor #helpmeobiwankenobi #judgemebymysizedoyou #ifyouonlyknewthepowerofthedarkside

#BookMail Pt1 Finally got the 2nd book in my Star Wars trilogy today. Isn‘t it gorgeous?

Who wants to get hot & bothered with me! #thatsoundssowrong #butsogood #Notrynotdoordonotthereisnotry

I'm only 34 minutes in, but I have to say I'm not digging this retelling. It might be the narrator, it might be the way it's written but so far I feel like it's talking down to the audience. But I will finish it

Loved the author for the second book! He included quite a lot of humour and actually a lot of helpful meditating techniques ! I'm well on my way to becoming a Jedi 🔮

Written by the author of THE INQUISITOR'S TALE, this version of EMPIRE STRIKES BACK makes "you" the protagonist. My 10yo got it for Easter and read it in 24 hours. #maythefourthbewithyou #maybookflowers take 2
