If you are a Star Wars fan, like my husband and I, this is definitely a book you will want to include in your Star Wars Collection.

I personally love how Ultimate STAR WARS  Characters • Creatures • Locations • Technology • Vehicles is organized chronologically – from Episode 1 to 6. The timeline flows through the entire book making it easy to visualize the progression of time through the movies and the Galaxy.

This is definitely a book for a more advanced reader, as it is fact based and filled with data and information. If you are looking for an entertaining Star Wars book – filled with color and fun facts for children (and up) I highly recommend STAR WARS • Absolutely Everything You Need To Know.

This doesn’t mean they won’t try to steal your book though – Drew keeps grabbing ours so he can look at the pictures while Darla is looking at the other STAR WARS book!

  1. I know a young one that would have loved this book, but like most little boys, their interests change as they get older. But I wish I would have known about this book when you originally did your review.
