Booknote: Goodnight Darth Vader

Jeffrey Brown, Goodnight Darth Vader. San Francisco, CA: Chronicle Books, 2014. ISBN: 978-1-60699-690-4.

Genre: Children's Lit (but really for all ages)
Subgenre: humor, Star Wars. 
Format: hardback
Source: My local public library.

With Goodnight, Darth Vader, Jeffrey Brown continues his series of cute Star Wars books. Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith and enforcer of the Emperor, is a single dad raising his kids, Luke and Leia. In this episode, he has to put the kids to bed, so he tells them a bedtime story of other Star Wars characters going to bed from Yoda to Boba Fett to Han Solo and so on.

The book is totally adorable. Fans of Goodnight Moon will certainly appreciate it as well as Star Wars fans of all ages. It is very nice with colorful art that brings to life the childhood wonder of a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. This was a pleasure to read, and it is one I would love to add to my collection.

5 out of 5 stars.
