Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

If you thought that all your questions about how a Sith Lord would raise a child were answered by Jeffrey Brown's Darth Vader and Son, think again. As every Galactic Empire parent knows, raising a daughter is a completely unique experience. Even the masked warrior formerly known as Anakin Skywalker is hard-pressed to counter and control his rebellious teenager's outlandish spontaneous plans. This hilarious illustrated book might gain this intergalactic villain more sympathy than any promised Star Wars sequel.

From the Publisher
" 7 out of 10 stars. Released with perfect timing for Father's Day, this is a great little present for the Rebel or Imperial father in any family."
- Starburst Magazine

"Jeffrey Brown's new book of Star Wars-inspired cartoons is a must-have for any fan. "
-USA Today's Pop Candy

"Jeffrey Brown has once again done the impossible - he has proven that Star Wars-based comedy can be fresh, irreverent and deeply funny. Whether or not you have (or want) kids of your own, this is essential reading."
-Geekadelphia

"It's delightful. As the father of two girls, I can relate to Vader's frustrations and sometimes helplessness in the face of a strong-willed daughter. Sometimes, the Force just isn't enough."
- GeekDad.com

"It isn't always all about Luke. For Star Wars fanatics, a hilarious look at Darth Vader raising a pint-sized Princess Leia-and all the parenting trials (saying no to the metal bikini, for one) that go with it."
- Real Simple

"If you're a 'Star Wars' fan, a parent, or both, Vader's Little Princess will speak to you, reassuring you that even if you had complete mystical mastery over The Force and the awe and respect of legions of stormtroopers -- being a parent is still the most daunting and rewarding task of all."
-The Trades

    Grandparents will laugh!

    I bought this for my son who thought he was Darth Vader as a 7 year old. Now, with 2 daughters (one, a 3 year old who thinks she is Darth Vader), this was a no-brainer birthday gift as he turned 34!! Those of us who were Star Wars parents back n the 70s will get a kick out of this book..

    In this tale, we visit upon one author's thoughts of what it might have been like if Darth Vader had raised Princess Leia. The story is told primarily in pictures through the teen years.

    The pictures are very detailed and enhance and/or explain the limited text . Both create a humorous and fun narrative for multiple ages.

    There are multiple references to the Star Wars movies, as well as, as co-starring role from Luke.

    Overall, a fun read.

         First I have a few disclaimers -
    1. I saw this book at Target and thought it looked cute
    2. I have never seen Star Wars
    3. Really, the only thing with Star Wars I have seen are Family Guy episodes

        For what this is, this book is extremely cute. Funny, with inside jokes and tongue in cheek comics, fans of Star Wars are bound to love this short but cute collection. Now for those who are kind of in a similar boat, there is enough humor and knowledge of the Star Wars Universe isn’t really necessary. One of my favorite scenes is when Leia is holding on for dear life on Darth Vader’s leg. Keep in mind though, the book is extremely short with less than 70 pages of content. Super cute, funny, and above all clever, Vader’s Little Princess is perfect for fans of the Star Wars franchise or for people who just enjoy a really cute and funny read.

    Interesting and cute!

    I loved the book. It was cute and adorable. I actually got it as a present for my brother for father's day. He has a 3 month old daughter and I thought this would be right up his alley. I also got him Darth Vader and Son, and my nephews got a kick out of both books. The oldest is just getting into Star Wars right now, and the second oldest is having a lot of fun playing Star Wars Angry Birds games. So they're just coming to the perfect ages to read these types of books. And I would get any other books by this author immediately if he makes more.

    Excellent and entertaining

    Bought this as a gift for my 6yr old since her brother received Vader and Son for his birthday (also a very fun to read). She loves having it read to her and I use it to, in turn, encourage her to read to me.
