Goodnight Darth Vader, Hardback
3 out of 5 (2 ratings)


It's bedtime in the Star Wars galaxy and Darth Vader's parenting skills are tested anew in this delightful follow-up to the breakout New York Times bestsellers Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess.

In this Episode, the Sith Lord must soothe his rambunctious twins, Luke and Leia, who are not ready to sleep and who insist on a story.

As Vader reads, the book looks in on favourite creatures, droids and characters, such as Yoda, R2-D2, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, Admiral Ackbar, Boba Fett and many others as they tuck in, yawn and settle down to dream.

As ever, Jeffrey Brown's charming illustrations and humour glow throughout, playing on children's book conventions to enchant adults and kids alike.

Review by

This book is very different than the previous two in the series. This one is the most aimed at children, being a picture book. It is a good night themed bedtime storybook with one sentence per page. There are a couple of "Goodnight Moon" type pages but the story does have a little plot as Vader tries to get the twins to bed by reading them a bedtime story. It's not particularly funny, though perhaps slightly grin producing. The book covers characters from all various Star Wars movies, so is best for the complete Star Wars fan. The art is just what we've come to expect from Jeffrey Brown by this point and if you are a fan of his, you'll want to add this to your collection.

Pretty cute - a Goodnight Moon for us Star Wars geeks! Even the trash compactor monster gets a shout out! My daughter and I are loving Brown's books!
