C-3PO and R2D2 must keep Darth Vader from discovering the Rebels’ secret plans! This fully-illustrated level 1 reader retells the classic scenes from A New Hope where the droids crash land on the desert planet of Tatooine and meet a young farmer named Luke.

Finally, my love of beginning reader books, and Star Wars have collided! This is a book I wish I had, had for my son when he was learning how to read. It's not only a great introduction to the world of Star Wars, it's also a great beginning reader book. The illustrations perfect for little readers. The worlds are easy to read, and understand. I definitely recommend adding this to your collection of beginning reader books. Whether it's a home library, public library, school library or classroom library, this is a book both boys and girls will enjoy reading.

I'll be honest, I'm not beginning reader, and but I'm a Star Wars fan, and I loved reading this with my daughter.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
