Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Christie Lough
This book introduces different shades of color using the characters from the Stars Wars saga. Most of the main colors are represented, including silver and gold. Some of the characters and planes used on the pages are rather obscure and children would not remember them from the movie, such as Rystáll and the N-1 starfighter. Some of the pictures are disappointing because they are low quality and very grainy. Others, like the ones of Chewbacca, C3PO, and Yoda, are clear and vivid. Those are the pages that the children will enjoy. On each double page spread, there is a color word and a sentence describing the picture using the color word. The color words are written in a way that appears to be 3-D. Most of the pages use the same format, but on the page for brown, the word is written in what looks like fur and the purple page uses something that looks like neon light. In regard to the sentences, some of the words are difficult, making this a book to be shared between an adult and child. Overall, this book would be for adults who enjoy Star Wars and want to teach their children colors. Reviewer: Christie Lough; Ages 3 mo. to 4.
Kirkus Reviews
2013-12-07
Creatures, characters and objects from the Star Wars saga represent different hues. Each double-page spreads focuses on one color and features stills from the nine films. The iconic characters are here—Luke Skywalker in an orange flight suit, brown-furred Chewbacca, green Yoda, white-armored stormtroopers and black-garbed Darth Vader. Lesser-known creatures and objects help fill in the other shades, such as the yellow N-1 starfighter and blue Max Rebo. The color is named on each spread in a bold, 3-D type, and one sentence lets readers know who or what it is being depicted: "The Royal Guards wear red." Little ones unfamiliar with the Star Wars universe will find many of the masked and extreme close-up faces (Yoda reaches menacingly out of the page) scary in this 9-inch-square offering. While many of the colors are bold and true, particularly gold C-3PO, others are a bit of stretch. Queen Amidala's ship looks more purple than silver, and the MagnaGuard's electrostaff does not look purple at all. While the book is not an effective color primer, the youngest Star Wars fans will enjoy the large images of their favorite characters. (Board book. 2-4)
