UPDATE: Clone Wars Books Update

Posted By Paul on May 4, 2008

Online bookshop Amazon has made some changes in its listings for children's tie-ins for the Clone Wars animated movie, making the situation a little clearer than it seemed before.

I can't see any change in the somewhat sketchy listings for the main series of tie-ins for the US market from Grosset & Dunlap, which are due on July 26th. However, Amazon.com in the USA no longer has listings for several of the parallel series of books said to be published by Ladybird.

This change make it almost certain that books where the publisher is listed as Ladybird (or in one case Puffin) are for the United Kingdom - running in parallel with the American tie-ins from Grosset & Dunlap. All three publishers are children's imprints of Penguin Books.

Crossing the Atlantic, we also find that Amazon's UK website has updated its listing for three of the books in question: the Official Movie Storybook, the Front Row Seat Storybook, and the Prepare for Battle! Activity Book.

The most noticeable change is the addition of "unapproved" cover art, presubably preliminary designs; but it's notable that the release dates for these books have been moved up to 7th August from 1st September, and that two of them have had their language listing changed from French, a detail which was causing us some confusion earlier.

It thus looks as though the situation is simple: US children's tie-ins from Grosset & Dunlap on 26th July, UK ones from Ladybird on 7th August. I expect the remaining listings claiming that books will be in a foreign language and/or released on 1st September will be updated in due course.

How much variation there is between the two ranges in the UK and US, however, remains to be seen.

Thanks once again to the ever-reliable Eddie from fan-site Once Upon A Galaxy for pointing some of that information out, and inspiring me to hunt down the rest!

UPDATE: as we reported here last night, the "unapproved" cover art on the Amazon UK website has disappeared. Thanks to Zee Zee from UK-based fansite Star Wars Books for spotting that.
