Darth Vader was never a really good father, and thinking that after 20 or more years that Luke would be a follower in his father’s footsteps was never really in the plans. So even though Darth did his best to bring his son to the dark side of the force was doomed to failure. Jeffrey Brown takes a different look at the relationship as it might have been if Darth was more of an active role in bringing up junior. It is cute, and cute, and cute all over. The Book is a lot like happy kitten pictures, with Darth playing the role of father impeccably, while junior Luke is all over the map like most kids are. From getting ties that you can’t wear, to misbehaving in the cantina, to light saber practice, this ends up being an awesome book for families to have and is some of the cutesiest stuff I have seen in a long time. As Chronicle books puts it:
What if Darth Vader took an active role in raising his son? What if “Luke, I am your father” was just a stern admonishment from an annoyed dad? In this hilarious and sweet comic reimagining, Darth Vader is a dad like any other—except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Celebrated artist Jeffrey Brown’s delightful illustrations give classic Star Wars® moments a fresh twist, presenting the trials and joys of parenting through the lens of a galaxy far, far away. Life lessons include lightsaber batting practice, using the Force to raid the cookie jar, Take Your Child to Work Day on the Death Star (“Er, he looks just like you, Lord Vader!”), and the special bond shared between any father and son.
The movie trailer for this one is cute too.
So what would I rate this one? It is a massed produced hard cover book that is awesome for kids who are into star wars. It is also awesome for adults who are also into star wars. Overall this one does not need a rating, rather it just needs to go to the top of the summer reading list for kids who are going to be trapped in a car while they tour America. So it is worth getting, but it is a huge title, so prices have pretty much so dropped through the floorboards on this one, meaning you can pick it up for pennies on the dollar. Worth getting, worth reading, and worth enjoying especially on long family trips trapped in a car with children, dogs, and all the rest of the accoutrements that go along with the family road trip.
