The text is harder than one would expect from a level 1 reader, but it’s easy to follow. The pictures are well done and complement the text well. Young children who enjoy Star Wars will like reading this book or having it read to them. PreK, EL (K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
