Editorial Reviews

The subtitle of this Star Wars reference guide from DK Publishing, "The Ultimate Guide to Characters and Creatures from the Entire Star Wars Saga," says it all. Bringing together all four titles from the Visual Dictionary series (Episode I-III and the Trilogy) in one gigantic volume, this resource contains every tidbit of information that any Star Wars fan will ever want to know about the six motion pictures -- from the color of Chewbacca's eyes to the eating habits of Jar Jar Binks! Pick any Star Wars character, creature, weapon, or vehicle, and chances are good that there's detailed information about it here. How many fingers does Tatooine parts shop owner Watto have? What was the name of Jabba the Hutt's annoying court jester? How big can a Duracrete Slug get? How does a Sarlacc's digestive tract work?

In the introduction, Rob Coleman -- the animation director for all three Star Wars prequels -- talks about how seeing the first Star Wars film at the age of 13 supercharged his imagination and changed his life forever. DK's massive Complete Visual Dictionary -- at a whopping 270 full-color pages! -- will transport any Star Wars fan back to that magical time when they first experienced the spectacular sights and sounds of a galaxy far, far away. Regardless of age, any would-be Jedi Knight or Sith Lord who picks up this guide will experience that same awe-inspiring, childlike sense of wonder Coleman talked about. It's almost guaranteed that readers will find themselves unintentionally saying, "Cool!" at some point during their perusal of this book. Paul Goat Allen

We have a five year old who loves Star Wars. We have enjoyed reading it with her as much as she has enjoyed looking at it on her own. Beautiful pictures and diagrams. Any Star Wars fan will love this book.

The Star Wars Visual Dictionary is one of the greatest sources of information available concerning Episodes 1-6 of the Star Wars saga. It helped me, personally, familiarize myself with the complex, and sometimes discouragingly vast universe, and is a great starting point for anyone considering participatiing in the galaxy far, far away...

The book has been a major help to me when I have needed to do research on some of the Star Wars characters. This must be a part of your library, if you are a Star Wars fan.

If there is just room for one Star Wars book on your shelf this is the one! It covers all six stories in the Saga and has every person and piece of equipment used by al the aliens. My five-year-old loves this!

The Star Wars visual dictionary is probably the most informative Star Wars book you'll find out there. It takes you through each character at a stupendous rate and gives you inside information that the movies did not display.
