My Opinion:
This book took me some time to go through, mostly because I was devouring every tiny detail in it. And there was a ton of detail to cover.
It is an epic look at all the films, from the real beginning, not the 80's version I originally knew of, with every part or detail you can think of.
Awesome shots from the movies accompany interesting facts that will have you turning each page only after you have read each description.
I actually learned some new things, and I was an avid fan, so that was a huge bonus in my reading adventure.
I have to say, I don't know if young kids age 7 would really "get" the information... there would be a lot of, "wow, cool" moments, but actually absorbing of the information, I doubt it. I would say this is geared for pubescent teens, probably mostly boys too, but they would get a kick out of the action and adventure in it, and still understand the information given.
A great book for adults too who are fans of the films. It's really cool to see it laid out from Anakin to Luke and their adventures they have, but in book. I think a lot of fans would appreciate the layout greatly.

 5/5

Recommend? Definitely, yes!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
