One of the newest offerings in Disney's popular Poster-a-Page books for young readers (ages 6 and up), is on a topic sure to get rave reviews from young Jedi fans - Star Wars!

Over 100 full-color, full-page images from all six movies, plus nine extra large removable posters, grace the pages of this book. From young pilot Anakin's podrace to Luke Skywalker's epic fight with Darth Vader, it's all here. Our heroes, Luke, Leia, Han and of course Yoda, all have plenty of coverage, but what would a Star Wars book be without villains? Darth Maul, Jango Fett, Jabba the Hutt are here too. In addition, lesser known players in the Star Wars saga such as Zam Wesell (shape-shifter assassin), make an appearance.

Each image is accompanied by a few words; lines taken from the movies, or comments about the character, planet, ship, etc. that help bring the fun to life. My favorite has to be a page with a few images of Jar Jar Binks that includes a small picture of Qui-Gon Jinn with a 'bubble' above him noting, "The ability to speak does not make you intelligent." How true!

Quill says: As Yoda would tell young Jedi fans, "Be silly you would, if you not get this book."
