My Take on the Book
My seven year old has had an interest in Star Wars since we watched all of the films together. As a fan myself I have always loved to share this love with my girls and I am just pleased that she too has loved the films as much as I have. Recently though, ever since we saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens, she has had an interest in reading more books about Star Wars too.
This book was a new ree-telling of the Empire Strikes Back. Though I say this, I will say that even though I say it is a re-telling, it is not the same as the movie. The author goes deeper than the movie and you get to see the characters and the situations through new eyes and ou get to experience what happened in the movie again with new life.
My seven (almost 8) year old is a strong reader and when she said she wanted to read this I was a bit reluctant because from the outside the book looks long, however, the text is large and the chapters short which makes the book move along quickly, even for younger readers.
I found that my daughter soared through these books and she simply loved the characters, the action and more.
This book really was a fun read for her and she kept saying to me how much she liked the book. She even read me chapters saying, “Dad, you have to read this!”
This book was a ton of fun, for the Star Wars fan!
