Continuing with my trend of examining Star Wars children’s books, I have before me Kerry Milliron’s Anakin Skywalker and Jar Jar Binks. I managed to pick-up these two books for a buck at the annual city wide book sale a few Octobers ago. No amazon for me this time.Like most children’s material there is not much to say. Ken Steacy’s illustrations were neat enough; the only notable thing to comment on is Jar Jar’s truly heroic pose on the last page of his book. He’s riding a Kaduu armed with a shock staff and fearlessly riding down battle droids- not the Jar Jar we’re familiar with at all.
For my next post I’m going to look at the Star Wars annuals dealing with The Phantom Menace material. I know I said I was going to do it this post, but upon looking at my post Handling 32 BBY I realized I missed this stuff. Anyway, until then my friends, may the Force be with you.
