The OTHER greatest Star Wars book ever. No, really.

Just when we thought the matter had been settled last year, when The Greatest Star Wars Book Ever was identified, we have this:

From the marketing copy:
“In this irresistibly funny follow-up to the breakout bestseller Darth Vader and Son, Vader—Sith Lord and leader of the Galactic Empire—now faces the trials, joys, and mood swings of raising his daughter Leia as she grows from a sweet little girl into a rebellious teenager. Smart and funny illustrations by artist Jeffrey Brown give classic Star Wars moments a twist by bringing these iconic family relations together under one roof. From tea parties to teaching Leia how to fly a TIE fighter, regulating the time she spends talking with friends via R2-D2’s hologram, and making sure Leia doesn’t leave the house wearing only the a skirted metal bikini, Vader’s parenting skills are put hilariously to the test.”

Vader’s Little Princess, by Jeffrey Brown – Chronicle Books

Just like its predecessor, this book is whimsical, cute, and oftentimes hysterical. Even the hardest of hardcore fanboys should be able to hold off from vomiting into their stormtrooper helmets, at least for a little while. It’s the perfect companion to Darth Vader and Son, and–in my case, anyway–just right for having a bit of Star Wars fun with your non-Y chromosome possessing offspring. My girls think it’s a total hoot.

I’m just jealous that I didn’t think of something like this, first. I also wish Star Trek could do more stuff like this.

    Perhaps you could do a series of the trials of Worf as a single parent raising a son who doesn’t want to be a warrior. Just think if Alexander decided to become a concert violinist! He could take lessons from Data.
