Star Wars Epic Yarns: A New Hope HC (2015 Chronicle Books) comic books
1st printing. Adapted by Jack Wang and Holman Wang. Jedi apprentices and little princesses will delight in this (heart)felt retelling of the Star Wars saga. And so will Star Wars fans of any age! The Star Wars Epic Yarns series launches with the original trilogy, and every word counts in these small but perfectly formed yarns. That's because each volume features 12 iconic scenes, handcrafted in felt and pithily summarized in just a single word. The attention to detail is eye-opening; the proportions are just-right for small hands; the fun is guaranteed. In A New Hope, Princess Leia sends a hologram message through R2-D2, Luke Skywalker will learn how to use a lightsaber, and our heroes triumph. In The Empire Strikes Back, Luke meets his teacher Yoda, Han Solo makes a friend, and there is a lightsaber duel with a Sith Lord in the dark. In Return of the Jedi, the monster Jabba is encountered, C-3PO conducts story time and there is a happy ending. Hardcover, 7-in. x 7-in., 24 pages, full color. All Ages Cover price $9.95.
