Overview


New York Times bestselling author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown takes readers to a middle school in a galaxy far, far away....

This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school--all told through one boy's comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away...

Roan's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy--a school that he didn't apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now...

This inventive novel follows Roan's first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too--like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force.

Although I figured that this book was mainly intended for kids, I really liked Jeffrey Brown's cartoon books about Darth Vader as a dad, and so I wanted to check it out. This book is different because it's the story of a fictional boy, Roan, who wants to go to pilot school like his dad and older brother did. He's sad when he gets a letter of rejection, but then he gets another letter telling him that he's been accepted into Jedi Academy. There doesn't seem to be an explanation for this unexpected turn of events. (I thought that children started their Jedi training much younger, as some of the other characters in this book thought, as well.) Nonetheless, Roan leaves his home planet of Tatooine and goes off to Jedi Academy. The book is the story of his experiences there, including report cards, school newspaper articles, letters from Roan's family, Roan's own journal, and the comics that he likes to draw, a talent he shares with his creator, Jeffrey Brown. There are typical rivalries, mean kids, friendships, and even a nice girl student whom Roan develops a crush on. This story takes place long before any of the Star Wars movies, so the characters are different, except for Master Yoda, whom Roan initially finds difficult to understand. There are teachers, students, and droids who may remind you of various Star Wars movie characters. Then there is Roan's struggle to feel the Force and learn to use it. The author is obviously a big Star Wars fan (as I am), and his new book is a lot of fun.

My son read it in just a few days. We even had to get the 2nd book the same day he finished the first one.

I'm trying very hard to get my son excited about reading and finding beginner chapter book at his level that he likes is quite tricky. I was not too thrilled when the book arrived and I found that this book is just a really long comic book. I would not have purchased it had I known that.

Very disappointed in the story line.  I thought Brown's previous books were enjoyable.  Stick with the Origami series if you really want a view into middle school students.
