It's time for a Star Wars bedtime story in a galaxy far, far away, and Darth Vader's parenting skills are tested anew in this delightful follow-up to the breakout New York Times Star Wars books bestsellers Darth Vader (TM) and Son and Vader's (TM) Little Princess. In this Episode, the Sith Lord must soothe his rambunctious twins, Luke and Leia-who are not ready to sleep and who insist on a story. As Vader reads, the book looks in on favorite creatures, droids, and characters, such as Yoda, R2-D2, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, Admiral Ackbar, Boba Fett, and many others as they tuck in, yawn, and settle down to dream. As ever, Jeffrey Brown's charming illustrations and humor glow throughout, playing on children's book conventions to enchant adults and kids alike. This Star Wars makes a fun, unique pregnancy gift, a new Dad gift, or funny new parent gift!

Our customer reviews

This book is very different than the previous two in the series. This one is the most aimed at children, being a picture book. It is a good night themed bedtime storybook with one sentence per page. There are a couple of "Goodnight Moon" type pages but the story does have a little plot as Vader tries to get the twins to bed by reading them a bedtime story. It's not particularly funny, though perhaps slightly grin producing. The book covers characters from all various Star Wars movies, so is best for the complete Star Wars fan. The art is just what we've come to expect from Jeffrey Brown by this point and if you are a fan of his, you'll want to add this to your more
