Book Review: Star Wars: Jedi Academy

Star Wars Jedi Academy is a graphic novel which tells the story of middle school… well, if you’re in a galaxy far, far away that is. The story is told through Roan’s drawings and letters which is a neat approach to tell the story, I thought. ┬áRoan wants to be a pilot but he is denied entry to pilot school even though his brother, father and grandfather have all attended! But he did get accepted into the Jedi Academy which is probably a better school to be attending than Pilot school anyway!

The book is the first year at the academy and features Star Wars favorite, Yoda!

A really cute book and an interesting approach at story telling. If your kid is a big star wars fan, they’ll want to check out this graphic novel.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

New York Times bestselling author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown takes readers to a middle school in a galaxy far, far away…

This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school–all told through one boy’s comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away…

Roan’s one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy–a school that he didn’t apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now…

This inventive novel follows Roan’s first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too–like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force.
