Vader's Little Princess
By: Jeffrey Brown
In this irresistibly funny follow-up to the breakout bestseller Darth Vader and Son, Vader--Sith Lord and leader of the Galactic Empire--now faces the trials, joys, and mood swings of raising his daughter Leia as she grows from a sweet little girl into a rebellious teenager.
Smart and funny illustrations by artist Jeffrey Brown give classic Star Wars moments a twist by bringing these iconic family relations together under one roof. From tea parties to teaching Leia how to fly a TIE fighter, regulating the time she spends talking with friends via R2-D2's hologram, and making sure Leia doesn't leave the house wearing only a skirted metal bikini, Vader's parenting skills are put hilariously to the test.
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, so I was happy to find it at my local library. 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 funny read.
