Have you ever wondered who the weird lookin' little bat person was that was reaching for a drink in the Cantina in Star Wars IV? Well her name's Kabe by the way, and if you are wondering about any other characters, read this book. It'll tell you the back ground stories of all those funny lookin' wierdos!

This book was interesting, creative, and gave a good look into characters that wern't in the movies. My favorite stories ad to be the one about the moisture farmer, the one about the Tals and Kabe, and above all... the one about Ponda Baba and Dr.Evazan, because, in my opinion, Ponda Baba is fantastic, cool character who nobody seems to give the love he deserves. It was the first thing I have ever found that showed at least some of the character and in my opionin that alone deserves 5 stars.

There is an interesting idea behind all of these stories. Every story is about a character that you would catch a glimpse of in the first Star Wars movie's cantina scene. At some point, the main character will find themselves in the cantina at the exact moment Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi walk in the door for the first time. The collection of stories as a whole were good, but "Nightlily" by Barbara Hambly was the best. It was absolutely hilarious. "Hammertong" by Timothy Zahn ranks a close second.

Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina is a highly entertaining book, as is the case with the other Star Wars 'tales' books. I have to say Davin Felth's tale was my personal favorite, and most of the others were very well done also. However, a few of the stories were just a little too dull to make the book perfect. Overall: an excellent book.
