The Mos Eisley Cantina Pop-Up Book
by Kevin J. Anderson, Rebecca Moesta, and Ralph McQuarrie

Published by

Scott's Rating:   2.5 out of 4

Take the book Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina, shorten it, make it so kids can follow it, and add some beautiful paintings by Ralph McQuarrie and you have the Mos Eisley Cantina Pop-Up book. It is actually very well made. Each page focuses on a different character seen in the Mos Eisley Scenes.


    The paintings by McQuarrie are great. Very nice. The Pop-Up part is very cool, too. It is of the Cantina itself. It has flashing lights and playes the cantina theme. It was a good idea to try this.


    The book came sealed in plastic, so I couldn't look at it until I had bought it. When I opened it, I flipped the pages and thought, "These are really great drawings, and I like the story, but where's all the pop-ups!??!" All the pop-up books I ever had when I was a kid had a lot of them! Finally, I got to the very end. The last page. There was the one and only pop-up in the Mos Eisley Cantina Pop-Up Book. It looked nice and all, but I felt VERY cheated! When I met Rebecca Moesta, I asked her about it. She said that it was originally intended to have a lot more, but the publisher cut the budget on the paper engineering of the Pop-Ups, so they only ended up with one. She said all of them were very disappointed with it. Also, the sound effects were great, but compared to all of the other books out there with sound and lights, its like comparing an Atari 2600 with a Super Nintendo. It just didn't cut it.


    The price tag....$20!!! I really can't believe I paid that much for it!!! Stupid, stupid, stupid!!! I'll buy any crud with Star Wars on it! Curse me for my weakness!!! (Sorry, Kevin and Rebecca, but I had to vent.)
