Star Wars: Beware the Dark Side by Simon Beecroft

Happy Star Wars Reads Day! It's the day where people all around North America celebrate Star Wars and reading. As I mentioned the other day, DK Publishing is celebrating by offering 30% off Star Wars books (for a limited time). These terrific books can be found in their Star Wars Boutique.

For more information about Star Wars Reads Day, go to the official site. There are activities planned all across North America.

A free downloadable Star Wars Reads Activity Kit with recipes, crafts, colouring pages and games can found at both the DK site and the official Star Wars Reads Day site.

Today, I'm posting a review of one of the books in DK's Star Wars Boutique

May the force be with you. 

Star Wars: Beware the Dark Side takes young readers through the dark side of the Star Wars universe while learning more about Darth Sidious, Darth Maul and Darth Vader.

I enjoyed this book and learned a lot. For some reason, the description on the website made me think that it was a storybook featuring Star Wars characters. However, it's not, but I still enjoyed it. The book delves into the details of the dark side and features the characters who use the force for evil. It goes through the Sith legacy and powers before launching into the various characters. It does go into the Star Wars storyline a little bit, but it's quite segmented.

The book is written for young proficient readers. Some knowledge of the Star Wars universe might be helpful. The book also features a table of contents, glossary, and index.

Highly recommended for young Star Wars fans.

For more information about this book or to browse inside, please visit DK's website.

I'd like to thank those nice people at DK Canada for this review copy.

Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
