#56: Star Wars: Mysteries of the Jedi - Dowsett & Last

Mysteries of the Jedi is a dynamic visual guide that brings the Star Wars galaxy to life for a new generation of Star Wars fans. In it, younger readers will meet all the Jedi heroes from Anakin to Yoda, understand what it takes to become a Jedi, find out how to wield a lightsaber, discover the secrets of the Force, examine the tools of the Jedi trade, and more!
Lively test and bold, kid-friendly design provide a new approach to the much-loved characters and themes of the Classic and Prequel Trilogies. Mysteries of the Jedi uncovers the mysteries of the Jedi Order, the Force, and the dark powers that threaten them, for children aged 7 and up.

My Opinion:
I think this is one of the best books that has references to all of the movies made in a series. It covers the newest and the oldest, and puts it in a format that makes more sense than if you watched the movies in sequence.
The best  part is, being a Star Wars fan, you actually learn information you may not have known previously. An example, I have seen all the films, but had no idea what a valuable, strong and important character Mace, (Samuel L. Jackson), was. Then I read this book, and it tells you all about his powers, and why he is so very important. Things you just don't catch or even get told in the movies.
So believe when I say, it may be a book geared for kids, but it's the adult who watched the original over 20 years ago that will really love this one!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.
