New edition. DK Publishing, 2019. ISBN: 9780241386071.
(Age: 8+) Recommended. Fans of the Star Wars sagas will welcome this new edition of Star Wars character encyclopedia, with its guide to approximately 218 characters, including the heroes, droids and enemies of the galaxy. It includes new characters from Rogue One: A Star Wars story, Star Wars: The last Jedi, and Solo: A Star Wars story.
Arranged in alphabetical order, each character has a page of attractive photographs and information about their affiliation, appearance and what their skills are. There are stills from the movies, and the photographs of the characters themselves are beautifully produced and will thrill any reader who loves the movies.
DK Publishing can be trusted to produce handsome, well bound and interesting books and this is no exception. It contains a useful contents page of all the characters found in the book and a comprehensive index provides access to details about the characters and their actions.
It is fun to dip into the book, looking for familiar and well-loved characters, but fans will want to start at the beginning and read until the end. It is a book that won't stay on the library or class room shelf for very long.
