From Barnes & NobleThe 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
