Hello, friends! Today, we read Star Wars: ABC-3PO, Galactic Basic Edition, written by Calliope Glass and Caitlin Kennedy, and illustrated by Katie Cook. This is a fantastic little alphabet book set in the Star Wars universe that is fun for fans of all ages.
C-3PO (Human-Cyborg Relations) introduces us to an alphabet book from a galaxy far, far away, where A is for Ackbar, P is for Poe Dameron and Y is for Yoda. Accompanying each letter is a short, humorous poem describing the character or thing, tongue firmly in-cheek as the text describes Kylo Ren’s ostentatious light saber or why you should seriously consider letting a Wookiee win at dejarik.
This is more like it! Unlike the disappointing Star Wars ABC we read last month, this is a Star Wars alphabet book that is as delightful as it is geeky. Nearly every letter is packed with the best-known and/or fan-favorite characters, and the poems are hilariously fun. Adorably cutesy renditions of familiar Star Wars visuals are a treat and make the book perfect for all ages. The length is fine, perhaps edging on long for the tiniest padawans, but JJ was grinning the whole way through. This is a fun, lovingly-crafted and wonderfully nerdy alphabet book for those who are knowledgeable in the ways of The Force. Perfect for fans of all ages, and definitely Baby Bookworm approved!
