Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Saying I loved this book is not capturing the sheer glee I had reading it. The story is great for talking to kids about fears - Lord Vader isn't afraid of anything! Of course why would he be afraid of a little ghost or an old witch? Vader dismisses all the monsters kids may be afraid of. Rex writes the book in a humorous tone that parents and children will delight in. The illustrations are a perfect match, adding another dimension to the story. I love the limited colors used, it makes the images more powerful. The text is simple enough for early readers to read by themselves and the book will make an excellent read-aloud (especially if you can read it in Lord Vader's voice!). The beginning sets the hilarious tone of the book : "It's midnight. There's a full moon!" (Vader responds) "That is no moon." Even the end pages are awesome. At first the appear to be some kind of paisley print but upon inspection it's little stormtroopers and tie fighters. I love everything about this book! In the end, we do find out that Vader may be afraid of something (and there is an epic carbonite reference)! This is one of those books you can read over and over again and not get tired of it. *Please note I received a free review copy of this book.
