In a Galaxy Far, Far away….
Egmont Publishers brings to you a selection of Starwars books for young readers to enjoy. We was sent a selection of books to share with our readers in time for World Book Day
StarWars Where’s Wookie A hardback search and find activity book. Can you find the loveable furry animal in the many colourful packed scenes throughout the book? Chewbacca is wanted for crimes against the Empire, despite his towering height and distinctive smell, he is an expert at evading capture. The hunt is on!
The boys loved this book, it kept them entertained for ages. Not only did they search through the very detailed pictures for wookie but there is also a galactic checklist at the end of the book to make the search a little harder. The first on the check list was to find the Jawa feeding the birds, which we found pretty quickly, but they do get harder.
Starwars Rebellion Tin Open the lid to discover:
•The Rebellion Doodle Book – sketch, colour and recreate your favourite Star Wars characters
•The Rebels to the Rescue Activity Book– packed with puzzles, word games, fun trivia and more!
•A New Hope story book – a captivating retelling of Episode IV by Ryder Windham and illustrated by Brian Rood.
And as if this wasn’t enough you can press out pieces to build your very own Millennium Falcon!
Suitable for all Star Wars fans aged 7 and up.
The Millenium Falcon took us about 10 minutes to build, the instructions found in the back of the Activity book are easy to follow. Each cut out piece has been labeled with letters and are easy to push out of the foam card. Each piece is connected together by precut slots.
This tin is definitely worth the money and will keep the children/adults busy for hours. Possibly the ideal git for a child that is travelling, all activities kept safe in the tin.
Starwars Adventure in Wild Space is a junior book series that is published by Egmont Publishing. The series follows the Graf siblings Lina and Milo as they go in search of their parents who were captured by the evil Galactic Empire.
The Escape has been specially written and published for World Book Day 2016. When the parents of Milo and Lina are abducted by the Stormtroopers, the children take a perilous journey across the unknown reaches of wild Space to rescue them.
It is one of the ten books that you can choose from using your World Book day Token given to your children from their school. World book day takes place on 3rd March, most schools and childcare settings take part in the children dressing up as their favourite book character.
We took on the challenge from Egmont Publishing to create a Star Wars themed costume for World Book Day. It was quite last-minute with items of clothing that we raided the wardrobes for, particularly looking for neutral colours. We found an old cardigan in my wardrobe, an old pair of trousers that once belong to the eldest boy, a belt that belongs to Daddy and mummy’s old Ugg boots. With a few snips here and there and a little imagination we came up with this outfit
What do you think? Can you guess what he is?
He had fun dressing up in costume, in fact I couldn’t get him out of it! He spent all day dressed in character running around the house with a foam sword going on an adventure across the galaxy.
My son, read through the Adventures in Wild Space: The Escape and really enjoyed it. There were just enough black and white illustrations to help him create the scene in his head, the story was thrilling and full of adventure. He was gripped after the first chapter and didn’t put it down until he had finished it. His favourite character is CR-8R, the family prim droid created by their Mum. Made from a mash-up of different droid models. Although he had the Graf siblings best interest at heart it didn’t make him less annoying.
The books are full of danger, excitement and adventure and are aimed at children aged 7-11. Each contains black and white illustrations and the text is fairly big making it easier to follow.
Starwars Adventures in Wild Space will be a series of 5 books, the first three available to buy from Amazon.
