Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Sue Preissner
It is true. This book's cover calls it "the definitive guide to the craft of Star Wars: Episode I" and aficionados will not be disappointed. The introduction provides necessary data on the players in this tale--Gungan, Naboo, Trade Federation, and the Republic. Understanding the people and their purpose are a necessary component to the creation of the various vehicles they use. Color, communication abilities, crew, deployment are some of the influencing factors surrounding the creation of these magnificent vehicles. The detailing, coloring, and captioning of the illustrations can be overwhelming on first read but this is one that devoted fans will return to again and again. All vehicles receive a full page spread, with the Droid Control Ship garnering a pull-out full spread. Each vehicle schematic is presented with a blocked "data file" for ease of comparison.
Library Journal
Gr 4-8-This oversized visual treat is packed with detailed illustrations of labeled cross sections of the vehicles and spacecraft created for Star Wars: Episode I. Jenssen and Chasemore, illustrators extraordinaire, went to the Lucasfilm headquarters and worked with the art department to see how these crafts were created. Most of the impressive, colorful pictures are on double-page spreads, though the center pages fold out to reveal a colossal four-page representation of a droid control ship. Interesting histories and details are set in a text that surrounds the drawings. "Data Files" give additional tidbits such as crew, manufacturer, speed, and armament. The writing is crisp and easy to read; the technological terms and descriptions are simpler to understand than those in Reynolds's Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary (DK, 1998). Anyone interested in the film or in spacecraft will enjoy this excellent guidebook.-Linda Wadleigh, Oconee County Middle School, Watkinsville, GA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Great Book

    I bought the book after I saw The Phantom Menace for the first time. The book is easy to read and understand. If you are a Star Wars fan or interested in the ships of Episode One than this book is a great buy.
