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 rebellious teenage daughter; Princess Leia.
Smart and sweetly funny illustrations by artist Jeffrey Brown give classic Star Wars moments a twist by bringing these two galactic adversaries together under one roof.
From teaching Leia how to fly a TIE fighter, to regulating the time she spends talking with friends via R2-D2's hologram, to making sure Leia doesn't leave the house wearing only the metal bra and a slinky skirt from Return of the Jedi, Vader's parenting skills are put hilariously to the test.

In this tale, we visit upon one author's thoughts of what it might have been like if Darth Vader had raised Princess Leia. The story is told primarily in pictures through the teen years.The pictures are very detailed and enhance and/or explain the limited text . Both create a humorous and fun narrative for multiple ages.There are multiple references to the Star Wars movies, as well as, as co-starring role from Luke.Overall, a fun read.
Review by Stahl-Ricco
Pretty funny, especially since I am a father too! You really have to know the original trilogy to get all the jokes, both the words and the illustrations! My favorite by far is on the back cover (and inside too!) - "You are not going out dressed like that!". Crack up
Review by NeitherNora
Very funny, but confusingly structured -- would've preferred it follow their relationship chronologically. But cute!
Review by ElizaJane
I actually enjoyed this a little more than the first one, maybe because I'm a girl and could relate more to having had some of these experiences myself at one time. Anyway, as opposed to the "Son" book, I actually thought a couple of these were funny and certainly "got" more of the humour. Still, I have to say I don't think it is anything special though I do love the art, especially Vader's awkwardness at being a "Dad". Again as the first book, I think the best audience for this book is Dads, and it would make a good Father's Day present for the Star Wars fan Dad of a daughter.
Review by SparklePonies
The sequel to Darth Vader and Son, this collection of cartoons adds more laughs to the Star Wars universe as Darth Vader deals with Princess Leia. Most notable are Darth Vader's impressions of Leia's rebellious side (especially in wardrobe selections) and his "little princess" being attracted to Han Solo.
