ReadItDaddy's First Picture Book of the Week - Week Ending 10th November 2017 - "Star Wars: Absolutely Everything you Need to Know" by Adam Bray, Cole Horton and Michael Kogge (Dorling Kindersley)

Our first Picture Book of the Week is a gigantic fact-filled blowout of all things Star Wars. Indeed it contains "Absolutely everything you need to know!"We're Star Wars geeks, unashamed and unabashed and if there's one thing we really love seeing on the blog, it's a big new fact-filled Star Wars book full of all the great things about the Saga. 

Now updated and expanded, "Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know" by Adam Bray, Cole Horton and Michael Kogge really will expand your knowledge of this amazing science fiction saga, dreamed up all those years ago by George Lucas - and now a gigantic money-spinning multi-billion dollar franchise with all new movies arriving over the next few years. 

This book really does have it all, and neatly covers the original trilogy, the 'trilogy we do not speak of' (AKA the Prequel trilogy), various fantastic Star Wars offshoot series (if you haven't tried Star Wars: Rebels, you really need to rectify that situation, it's AMAZING!) and even a tiny smidge or two about the upcoming Episode VIII - "The Last Jedi"

If that hasn't firmly whetted your whistle then how about a look inside...

What do you want to rebel against? "Whaddaya got?"
The great thing about this book is that it's good for both die hard fans and newbies who are just discovering the movies and series (and books and t shirts and underpants and lunchboxes and..and...) for the very first time. 

The cuddly (and not so cuddly) familiars of various Star Wars characters. Salacious Crumb is our FAVE!
We love the layout of this book, tons and tons of illustrations, photos and of course thousands of facts and interesting info on all your favourite characters, technology and locations from the movies. 

Whaddaya mean "Junk!" Face it sister, this is the fastest thing in the galaxy!
This is the sort of book that every Star Wars fan will love as a christmas pressie (no it's definitely not too early to start your Christmas Shopping). 

"Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know" is out now, published by Dorling Kindersley (kindly supplied for review).
