I saw this book in the store and just knew my Star Wars fan would love it. It is an incredible book with an animated appeal. Great for all ages.
This is one of six books in the Rufus Butler Seder scanimation series along with Gallop, Kick, Swing, Waddle and Wizard of Oz. I expect there will be other movie themed books as these are particularly entertaining. This scanimation book is one of my favourites as it contains brightly coloured scanimation pictures and actual quotes from the film. The pictures move by opening and closing the book carefully. A bit like the flicker books you used to get where you can move a man or a horse by flicking several pictures of the man/horse to get them to move but scanimation is alot classier. These books are great for children and adults who are young at heart. Everyone who has seen this book at my house has been wowed (adults and children alike)
