Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A pure joy to zoom in and explore." – Gizmodo
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The space ships, fighters, and Death Star were big in the movies and this BIG (10- by 14-inch) book lets kids and grownups examine these crafts in great detail. The Death Star section folds out into a four-page spread that includes scenes from the movie as well as a look at the interior. Fourteen vehicles are portrayed, including the Sandcrawler, AT-AT (Imperial All Terrain Armed Transport), Snowspeeder, At-ST (All Terrain Scout Transport), and Jabba's Sail Barge. The minutiae are amazing. West has a companion title — Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary.
VOYA - Nancy K. Wallace
Two new books explore and enrich the ongoing Star Wars saga. Star Wars: A Visual Dictionary provides a scrumptious visual feast with its double-paged articles and profusion of detailed information on characters and creatures, including still shots from the movie and supplementary data files. Not a space is wasted, even the title page and table of contents are strewn with pictorial diagrams. Chewbacca's section contains a nineteen-inch full color photo of the huge, hairy beast with additional inserts that highlight his carry pouch with contents, weapons, ammunition, and spacecraft repair tools. Star Wars: Incredible Cross-Sections, an illustrated guide, includes diagrams for the Millennium Falcon, T-65 X-wing, Blockade Runner, Tie Fighters, Sandcrawler, and BLT-A4 Y-wing, among others. An elaborate four-page fold-out analyzes the Death Star in minute detail, highlighting Detention Block AA-23, the trash compactor, the air shaft, and Docking Bay 3207 where Obi-Wan Kenobi sacrificed his life to ensure Luke's escape. A copy of the technical readouts reveals the Polar Trench and the exhaust port that Rebel fighters targeted to destroy the Death Star. AT-AT Walkers, AT-STs, snowspeeders, and speeder bikes are also included. Diagrams are surrounded by inserts of fascinating trivia, history, and technical notes. A special introduction enumerates spacecraft engine types from sublight to hyperdrive. The archeologist author includes excellent photographs, illustrations, and attractive layouts, approaching the Star Wars phenomenon with professional objectivity, as though classifying the artifacts of this future civilization. Both of Reynolds's books have exceptional authenticity and belong in any serious Star Wars collection. Illus. Note: This review was written and published to address two titles-Star Wars Incredible Cross-Sections and Star Wars a Visual Dictionary. VOYA Codes: 5Q 5P M J S A/YA (Hard to imagine it being better written, Every YA (who reads) was dying to read it yesterday, Middle School-defined as grades 6 to 8, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9, Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12 and adults).
