Review – Jedi Academy: Return of the Padawan!

December 13, 2014

Jedi Academy

It’s time for Roan to return to Jedi Academy for his second year of Jedi training. He’s really excited about it because he’ll learn to pilot starfighters this year.  Since last year ended on a high note, Roan is sure this year will be a breeze.  Things didn’t start out that way – in his classes or with his friends – but Roan learns a lot along the way, especially

A friend isn’t just someone you can count on . . . it’s someone who can count on you!

Jedi Academy: Return of the Padawan! by Jeffrey Brown is the perfect graphic novel for young Star Wars fans.  I didn’t realize this when I read it but it’s actually the second book in the series.  I thought it stood alone just fine, though, and enjoyed it very much.

Middle grade readers will enjoy the Star Wars references and familiar characters (like Yoda) and learn something along the way as Roan navigates the world of school and friendship.  I thought the story and its lessons were terrific and very much enjoyed the illustrations as well.  Be sure to check out this series if you’re looking for a gift for a young Star Wars fans – they won’t be disappointed!
