Star Wars Year by Year: A Visual Chronicle ~ (DK Canada) ~ Book Review

We have a few Star Wars fans in the house and both of them we super excited to get their hands on a copy of DK Star Wars Year by Year. D was actually more excited than our son to read through this huge book of facts. Did you know that October 10 is Star Wars Reads Day? Come back on Friday to read all about it and find out what is going on in your local area.

Review: (This review was written by Derek)

Star Wars Year by year covers the last 40 years of this iconic franchise. From the influences in the world which inspired this storied franchise, to a year by year breakdown of Star Wars moments, this book has it covered. 

Do you want to know what happened the you were born? Married? Other important life events? It's in there; (Kenner ships the first four action figure's the month I was born). There are loads common and not so common tidbits about the ideas, processes, development and releases of the series. There are also excellent tie ins with real world events (George Lucas's legal issues with the use of "Star Wars" as the name of a missile defense program). Lots of colour photo covering all things Star Wars makes this a visually pleasing experience. Each year begins with an interesting point, and is separated nicely by months. I found the amount of information was excellent but did not read like a history book although that is exactly what it is. I would strongly recommend this book to the Star Wars fans of all levels as it has something for everyone. 

I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
