Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“It used to be that parents would look to the Bible or history or long-gone relatives to find a name for their baby. Then Mom and Dad began looking to singers and sports starts and movie actors and actresses for inspiration. Now comes Brooklyn writer Robert Schnakenberg with a new source: science-fiction characters.”—Chicago Tribune
 
“Tempted to name your son Yoda? A new book called Sci-Fi Baby Names can help you make that important decision.”Newsday
 
“Baby names such as ‘China’ and ‘Moon Unit’ are so yesterday. Now your kid can be 23rd century from Day One if you zap him or her with a name from the new book Sci-Fi Baby Names.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The next day anakin shecdueled a meeting with yoda. "I you wish skywalker you may." Said yoda. "Thank you yoda." Replied anakin. As anakin walked in lilia was on the couch crying. "Lil whats wrong? Why are you crying!" Asked anakin lilia looked up at him an showed him multiple scars cuts an bruses on her arms an face. "What happened?!" Asked anakin. "O..one of the b..boys in m..my jedi c..class said th..that i w..was evil c...cause you were a sith. Th...then he p...punched me in the eye an his friends cut me an scared m...me w..with thier la.....lights..sabers." reaplied lilia. Anakin went to the kitchen an found an ice pack an gave it to her. "PADEMA COME HERE QUICK!" Said anakin. "What whats wrong! Oh my gosh lilia!" Screamed padema. "Sweetie are you ok?" "The boys in her training class beat her up because i was a sith." Said anakin. "That dosen't explain the gashes in her arms an face!" Said padema. "T...they c..cut m..me with th...their l...light...s..sabers." said lilia. "I'll talk to yoda you get lil to the hospital ok?" Said padema. "Ok." Said anakin. Anakin carryed lilia to the car an then got in himself. After a two hour drive because of traffic they arrived at the hospital with obi-1. "Lets get her inside quick anakin!" Yelled Obi-1 threw the rain. They walked inside an lilia was taken to the emergency room quickly. "Im sorry my.skywalker but you can't come in the room." Said a nurse. "You know what she's very lucky to have a father like you." Said Obi-1. "What do you mean im like every other concered father." Said anakin. "No not really. Your a father who cares about all his childern but favores one." "No!i don't favor lilia!" Screamed anakin. The two laughed. A nurse came out an nodded that he could come in. "Daddy........" said lilia. "Shhh......im right here lil. Its ok. How are you feeling?" Asked anakin. Lilia raised her hand to a drawing pad. "Here ill get it for you." Said anakin. Anakin walked over picked up the book an placed it on the table next to her. Lilia opend the book an came to a sketch of two ponies(like mlp). After she opened two the sketch she started drawing an slowly it opened up showing two father an daughter ponies. "Who are you drawing?" Asked anakin. Lilia pointed to him and her. Then sketched an long brown braid on the mare an long short boys hair on the stallion. After finishing the sketch the doctor came in an asked if anakin wanted to stay with lilia that night. Anakin called padema an told her he was staying at the hospital with lilia. The next moring lilia was dressed an ready to leave. Her gashes now unoticeable scabs. An her bruses now faded. "You ready to go home lil?" Asked anakin. Lilia nodded as they headed for the check out. They left the hospital with all of lilias things an headed home. Once there lilia got out an ran inside hugging padema......................................im sorry not seven pages today.
