Star Wars: Jedi Academy (Star Wars)by Jeffrey Brown
Synopses & Reviews
New York Times bestselling author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown takes readers to a middle school in a galaxy far, far away....
This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school--all told through one boy's comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away...
Roan's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy--a school that he didn't apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now...
This inventive novel follows Roan's first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too--like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force.
About the Author
Jeffrey Brown is the author/illustrator of the bestselling Darth Vader & Son (Chronicle, April 2012, $14.95) which imagines what it would have been like if Darth Vader had raised a young Luke Skywalker. This title spent several weeks on the NY Times and LA Times bestseller lists and will be spun off into a Postcard Book and Journal (May 13) as well as a Calendar (Sum 14). Jeffreys newest book Vaders Little Princess will be available April 2013 from Chronicle. Jeffrey is a lifelong Star Wars fan, but despite his best efforts, has been unable to use the Force. He lives in Chicago with his wife, Jennifer, and his son, Oscar.
