Review: Two Fun New ‘Star Wars’ Books for Young Readers Out Now

3 Min Read

Over the past year, Star Wars fans have had many new adventures to read about. No matter the age, there are books for everyone. Today, two new Star Wars books are now out for young fans to enjoy.

The Mandalorian Season 2 Junior Novel

The Mandalorian Season 2 Junior Novel recaps the second season of the hit Disney+ show for fans ages 8-12 years old. It’s a great way to relive the exciting high-stake adventures Mando goes on during his quest to return Grogu to his kind.

The book does a great job at describing what we see in the show in an easy-to-read manner for kids. The biggest opportunity that The Mandalorian Season 2 Junior Novel misses is getting a better idea of what is going on through the characters minds that we don’t get to experience while watching the series.

Being able to know the inner feelings of the characters could’ve added much more depth to the already beloved story. For example, what was Mando thinking when he had to take off his helmet and reveal his face? I would’ve loved to read about any anxiety or fear the intimidating bounty hunter was feeling in that moment.

A huge perk of this book, however, is the insert of photos from the show. Snapshots of some of the best moments in the second season are a great keepsake for The Mandalorian fans.

Star Wars: Galaxy of Creatures

Younger Star Wars fans have another fun book to read this year. Star Wars: Galaxy of Creatures explores the critters within the Star Wars Universe. This children’s book is based on the new Galaxy of Creatures animated shorts, and follows SF-R3, or “Aree,” as he learns about the galaxy’s wildlife, big and small.

Meant for children ages 5-8, Star Wars: Galaxy of Creatures includes 32-pages of laugh out loud humor and adorable pictures. The story can truly transport the young fan in your life to the galaxy far far away.

The Mandalorian Season 2 Junior Novel and Star Wars: Galaxy of Creatures are both out now. They are available for purchase anywhere books are sold.
