Luke, I Am Your Father



I bought the cutest book for the two Star Wars geeks, er...fans, in my life. It just released this month and it's called DARTH VADER AND SON


It's more gag then story book, but little bean requests it most nights and then snickers the whole time




From Publishers Weekly:  Jeffrey Brown crashes headlong into George Lucas’s galaxy far, far away with endearing, funny—and fully licensed—results. A series of full-page gag cartoons focusing on the “what if?” of Darth Vader raising a four-year-old Luke Skywalker, the book twists father/son moments into scenarios within the Star Wars playground. 


For instance, the addition of a wailing little Luke turns the Bounty Hunter scene into, as one bounty hunter’s thought balloon puts it, Awkward!” Trick-or-treating, toy shopping, a day at the zoo, and more are rejiggered with a lighthearted, charming tone.

This looks adorable.

None of my kids got into Star Wars. We borrowed the DVD once, at my nerdy husband's insistent request. The kids lasted 20 minutes before complaining how boring it was. I had to agree with them. Needless to say, my husband was disappointed.

I have to get that. The whole family are fans. I admit, I have a yoda lego character on my keychain. I think that made me sound like a geek.

Christine, I have Harry Potter Lego magnets on my fridge! So um...yeah. :D

You can always count on George to license our childhoods away. I'm only joking. This one looks pretty cool, but I was recently destroyed by something I saw on Facebook. I'll try to tag you, Christina.

Ha! That looks FANTASTIC! My daughter's too young to get the joke, but someday this would be fun to have.

How fun. I'll have to let older boy peek at this one.
