Kid's books
« on: November 13, 2005, 07:04 PM »
I usually get my younger cousins a little something for Christmas every year, and I wanted to get them something besides action figures this year.

I thought about the children's books, and have no idea where to start. Are there some decent currently-available books that have the story of ROTS? I know there are some for the OT, and I'm going to get those for them.

scholastic books released some nice novelization of TPM and a cool books about the clone wars (boba fett stories) or the early empire (obi-wan, the last of the jedi)

I guess I'll just have to poke around Barnes & Noble and see what I find. I got them a OT VHS set last year, so I'll gamble that will be what is most familiar to them.

Thanks for telling me the company's name. I couldn't for the life of me think of who published these books.  :)

As a parent and a teacher (sixth grade) I can tell you that in order of who reads which books the most:

Boba Fett series is #1
The Last of the Jedi (about Obi Wan in exile during 1st years of the empire)
Jedi Quest (about Obi Wan as a master and Anakin as an apprentice )
Jedi Apprentice (about Qui Gon as a master and Obi Wan as an apprentice )

So you know, the author is Jude Watson.

Here's a link to the B&N site:
