"If the kids are united, then we'll never be divided."
Switching from the unpredictable and anxiety ridden world of parenting to the adventure and whimsy of friendship, best-selling author Jeffery Brown is back in the Star Wars game with "Rey and Pals"
Brown, who previously who wrote and drew the non-canon book Darth Vader and Son, as well as its three sequels, is focusing on the sequel era this time following a young upstart named Rey and her band of buddies. Imagine a galaxy where everyone is friends and there is no war, sounds pretty great right? Well, that's the premise here as Rey, Poe, Finn, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Hux and all the rest have a blast doing everyday things like bowling, hanging out, and causing headaches for the adults.
The style and tone of the book matches all his previous efforts and will look great on your shelf alongside his other titles. I have to say, since I'm not a parent myself, this book is my favorite of his hands down as I could relate to many of the hijinks Rey and her friends get up to.
Bottom line, this book is a wonderful way to introduce your kids to the Star Wars sequel-era characters, even if the canon lines are blurred. It's light, fun, and the illustrations by Brown are great as always.
