LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

Growing up in the shadow of his heroic father, Lumpawarrump, son of Chewbacca, feels tremendous pressure to match his father’s daring exploits. Chewie’s life-debt to Han Solo keeps him from returning home, and without the steadying influence of his father, Lumpy is unfocused and out of control. So Chewie’s wife decides that a visit to Coruscant is in order. It’s the perfect opportunity for the family to bond–and for Chewbacca to teach his son some much-needed life-lessons.

But when Lumpy’s eagerness to impress his father leads to direct disobedience, Chewie is forced into an extreme pursuit that will lead him into Coruscant’s dangerous underlevels–and to a secret as shocking as it is deadly. . . .

    Good Wookie book!

    I really enjoyed reading about Chewie's family. Never thought of him as a father and this book shows some of his background and life outside of being indebted to Han. I thought it ended kind of abruptly though. I found myself wanting more... Good read though!

    recommended for wookie lovers everywhere

    I enjoy the Star Wars books, and personally I would love to have every single one on my nook. It is why I wanted it.

    Mr. Denning writes books worthy of reading. Expect to have to use your brain just a bit to see deeper into the story than what you see at first and you will become a fan. Then above and beyond the short story here is a wonderful interview with the author which will help you to understand what to look for when reading his books. I am looking forward to buying some of his other books.
