Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-This oversized visual treat is packed with detailed illustrations of labeled cross sections of the vehicles and spacecraft created for Star Wars: Episode I. Jenssen and Chasemore, illustrators extraordinaire, went to the Lucasfilm headquarters and worked with the art department to see how these crafts were created. Most of the impressive, colorful pictures are on double-page spreads, though the center pages fold out to reveal a colossal four-page representation of a droid control ship. Interesting histories and details are set in a text that surrounds the drawings. "Data Files" give additional tidbits such as crew, manufacturer, speed, and armament. The writing is crisp and easy to read; the technological terms and descriptions are simpler to understand than those in Reynolds's Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary (DK, 1998). Anyone interested in the film or in spacecraft will enjoy this excellent guidebook.-Linda Wadleigh, Oconee County Middle School, Watkinsville, GA (c) Copyright 2010.
