My 9 year old child talked me into buying him this book at our school's bookfair that was hosted by Barnes and Noble. I figured it was going to be looked at a couple of times and he would tire of it, but that has not been the case. He carries this book with him everywhere even to deer camp. I must say this is an awesome book and you always find something in it that you missed the last time you looked.

My daughter is a huge Star Wars fan. She received this book today and it is fantastic! It is so well done and fun. Great for all Star Wars fans young or old!

These are NOT the pop-up books I grew up with! Each of the 6 pages are PACKED with fold outs and really sophisticated pop-ups - really detailed and extremely clever - amazing! Even a pair of light sabers light up! Fascinating book (and the series is fantastic - Reinhart is a genius)

This is not your standard pop-up book. These are intricate designs that explode out of the page at you. Some of the coloring is off. Most of the pages are a bit delicate for the grabbing hands of the little ones who want to read it and turn the pages.

Hardcore Star Wars purists (those that refuse to acknowledge the existence of the Prequel Trilogy) will not be amused, but those looking for an attractive, colorful, and interactive look at the Star Wars universe will find lots to love here.

Star Wars fans, young and old, will get a kick out of this crazy cool pop-up.

This was given as a gift to my adult son. He was beyond thrilled. He has shown it to everyone he has seen over the holidays. And they have been just as impressed. From intricate cutouts and popups to the light saber that actually lights up, this book is very well done!

This is an amazingly artistic and complex book. I purchased one for my 3 year old grandson who is fascinated by Star Wars and even though he can't read a word, he just loves it! Then I also purchased it for my 10 year old grandson who CAN read and also loves it. Each page has multiple, intricate pop-ups, sometimes one inside another! It even has a real battle with light-up light sabers!

This is a Christmas gift for my 10 yr old grandson who will appreciate the information and may be able to figure out the technology of the book. I have not read it cover to cover, I just wanted to be sure it "worked" before I gave it to him. The swords on the last page light up and I was aware of this due to the picture on the flyer that came with it.I called the bookstore and no one there seemed to have any more info than I.

I bought this as a present for my 6 year old nephew and he was crazy excited when he saw the book. We are a Star Wars family and the fact that this is more than just a pop up book was very exciting. The large images, the different facts under flaps, the movable items were grands of fun.

This is a very well constructed pop-up book. They included the most important characters, creatures, and places in the Star Wars Universe. This is the best of the Star Wars pop-up books that are out there.

The book is recommended for ages 7 and up, but I bought it for my nephew who turns 4 Christmas week. Can't comment on his reaction as he hasn't received it yet... but I'm fairly positive he will LOVE IT!! It's huge, very colorful, big pop ups, each page has extra mini-pages in the corners with additional hidden pop ups. It's nice quality. Honestly, I think it's worth more than the price listed. I'm on a tight budget and I probably would've paid a little more simply because getting kids hooked on books early is very important, and this book will do it.

To be honest i did not want to buy this book. I thought it was too expensive. I am glad I bought it. This pop up is AMAZING!!! There is alot of reading info on the pages and some of the pop up scenes light up. I am currently looking at purchasing more for as gifts for the kids. If you have a Star Wars fan ..... this is a great book.

This pop up book is FABULOUS! Mt son is only 4 and he adores it, and my husband does as well. Its super cool for kids as the light sabers illuminate and the details are wonderful. We found this product in the store but it had been played with and was worn out so we had them order us a new copy. We gave it to my son as a gift and he just cant get over how cool it is. Its great because it is interactive yet there is still alot for me to read to him so I can be involved also. I would recommend this to any Star Wars fan for your collection. Probably will be worth something for the grandkids if kept in good shape. Great Product, smart purchase, a little pricey but worth it.

This book was awesome for my son, the youngest, newest Star Wars fan in my family. It held his interest page to page, until the very end! It has opened his eyes to the value of books and he now is reading other books...he's five years old and reads on a second grade level.

We purchased this book for our sons 9th birthday. He loves all things Star Wars and knows the movies better than we do (and we grew up with them). This book has so many things to explore, including flaps under flaps and motion. This author did a fabulous job! It's great!!!
