Book Title: "Darth Vader and Son" Author: Jeffrey Brown Published By: Chronicle Books Age Recommended: 5 + Reviewed By: Kitty Bullard Raven Rating: 5
Review: It really doesn’t matter if you are a Star Wars fan or not, when you read this little gem of a book, you will be sure to fall in love with Darth and Luke. The book paints the perfect picture of what it might have been like had Darth Vader raised his son.
With beautifully drawn, comical cartoons and a humorous and true look at what kids are really like, you can easily see just how hard poor Darth would have had it! Simply adorable, the kind of book all parents and little boys will adore and cherish. I give it a definite 5 Raven Rating and by the way… I am a Star Wars fan!
Synopsis: What if Darth Vader took an active role in raising his son? What if "Luke, I am your father" was just a stern admonishment from an annoyed dad? In this hilarious and sweet comic reimagining, Darth Vader is a dad like any other-except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Celebrated artist Jeffrey Brown's delightful illustrations give classic Star Wars® moments a fresh twist, presenting the trials and joys of parenting through the lens of a galaxy far, far away. Life lessons include lightsaber batting practice, using the Force to raid the cookie jar, Take Your Child to Work Day on the Death Star ("Er, he looks just like you, Lord Vader!"), and the special bond shared between any father and son.
