Synopsis

Goodnight Darth Vader by Jeffrey Brown

It's bedtime in the Star Wars galaxy and Darth Vader's parenting skills are tested anew in this delightful follow-up to the breakout New York Times bestsellers Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess. In this Episode, the Sith Lord must soothe his rambunctious twins, Luke and Leia, who are not ready to sleep and who insist on a story. As Vader reads, the book looks in on favourite creatures, droids and characters, such as Yoda, R2-D2, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, Admiral Ackbar, Boba Fett and many others as they tuck in, yawn and settle down to dream. As ever, Jeffrey Brown's charming illustrations and humour glow throughout, playing on children's book conventions to enchant adults and kids alike.

Reviews

'Brown's managed an impressive feat with these books, delivering something wonderfully sweet and quirky with a genuine appeal to anyone even remotely interested in the Star Wars brand but he's also managed to do it without any real stylistic compromise.'

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
