Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
Experience the ABC's like never before
With galactic friends who are hardly a bore.
From Akbar [sic] to Zeb, this nice little primer
Will teach you and make you an excellent rhymer.
So, Padawans, prepare, get ready, get set
To learn the ways of the Force--and the alphabet!
Summary[edit | edit source]
The ABCs of Star Wars canon are presented in humorous rhyming verse, with two-page or occasionally single-page spreads for every letter of the alphabet. Each letter focuses on a single subject, such as "E" for "Ewoks" or "K" for "Kylo Ren." While each letter only focuses on a single specific subject, with the lone exception of "L" for "Luke and Leia," sometimes these can encompass more than one item; for example, Rey's spread also features BB-8, and R2-D2 is seen in the spreads for both C-3PO and droids. The pages for "G" (Greedo) and "H" (Han Solo) depict the two facing off from their respective pages.
While most material is from the films, Chopper, Ezra Bridger and Zeb of Star Wars Rebels all make appearances. The illustration style ranges from a look similar to that of the films or television series to a more cartoonish look for characters such as the Ewoks.
Continuity[edit | edit source]
The spread for "Luke & Leia" depicts Leia Organa standing on a balcony on what appears to be the palace on Alderaan under a crescent moon. However, A New Hope: The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy establishes that Alderaan had no moons.
