REVIEW:
If you have ever wanted to know all there is to know about the Dark Side, the look no further. This wonderfully illustrated book has all the ins and outs of the Dark Side. Learning about each character, their specialties if they have them, and why they are on that side. All these topics are discussed in the book.
Kids ages 8 and up who are fans of the Dark Side will LOVE this book. Though I know a ton of parents that will get a kick out of it too. Very detailed and really well put together, it's sure to please every Star Wars fan.

5/5





Feel the force of the pencil, get creative and bring "Star Wars" to life on the page. Follow the expert tips, tracings, fold out pages and stencils and draw body shapes which pack a punch (or a lightsabre), inspiring action poses, spectacular vehicles, out-of-this-world clothes and futuristic equipment. Put R2-D2, Luke SkyWalker and Darth Vader on the same page and create scenes and battles from your own imagination - if you dare! And don't forget, there are tons more DK "Star Wars" books to collect.

REVIEW:
How I would love to be able to draw my favorite characters from Star Wars. Unfortunately I have a ton more practicing to do. I tried drawing some from this book, but it is far too advanced for me.
My nephew, on the other hand, is going to freak his freak when I give this to him. He not only loves Star Wars, but he draws comic books as well! 
Artists, fans and collectors alike are going to enjoy this book!

4/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
