Star Wars Attack of the Clones - Jango Fett: Bounty Hunter
by Eric Arnold, illustrated by Valerie Reckert

Published by Random House


Scott's Rating:   3.5 out of 4


This is a "Step Into Reading" book from Scholastic. It is intended for Grades 2 - 3 and is written for beginning readers.

This book starts immediately before Attack of the Clones. Jango Fett is shown training Boba Fett to fly Slave I. When he is contacted by Count Dooku to assassinate Padme, Fett in turn recruits Zam Wesell to do the dirty work for him. Leaving Boba behind on Kamino with Taun We, Jango and Zam Wesell rendezvous on Coruscant for the assassination. The events portrayed in Episode II are then shown from the point of view of Zam Wesell and Jango Fett.



Scott:

    I liked the fact that this book wasn't a simple rehash of the events in the film. We get a taste of what Boba Fett's training program was like on Kamino and what his relationship with his father is like. It fills in the gaps of how Jango Fett was hired by Count Dooku and how he and Zam Wesell hooked up to kill Padme. While being a fun story for kids, it's a nice bit of additional story that adult fans will enjoy.



Scott:

    While the art in this book is made up of nice Photoshop manipulations of stills from the film and production, they aren't near as satisfying as original artwork. The art in Anakin: Apprentice is just so much cooler that I'd like to see it more than these photos.

This book also shows Jango Fett and Zam Wesell rendezvous in the Outlander Club before they try to kill Padme. In the movie, it seems that after a crazy chase Zam Wesell ends up there by accident. This book would imply that she went there on purpose, but it doesn't make sense. You'll have to decide for yourself.



Scott:

    Nothing to add here.
