A great retelling of "Star Wars: A New Hope" adapted for children. It was even more exciting to listen to the audio recording as there were added sounds for the special effects. Alexandra Bracken stayed very close to the source material, but gives insight into what the characters are thinking, which cannot be conveyed on screen.
Highly recommended to get your kiddo ready for the next Star Wars movie. Or, if they are already a fan of Star Wars this easy read would be a great way to introduce them to novels.
