Praise for Star Wars: Jedi Academy:
A New York Times Bestseller
* "With its mix of comics and text, it will appeal to fans of
Jeff Kinney''s Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dav Pilkey''s Captain
Underpants hybrid books. On a deeper level, this book tackles
serious issues like failure, bullying, friendship, determination,
and starting a new school in a fun and funny way."
-Booklist, starred review
"Brown combines Star Wars excitement with real-life kid
problems to make a fresh, inspiring, and humorous take on the
franchise." -School Library Journal
"Even the most critical Star Wars fans will give
Lucasfilm points for licensing this subversive graphic novel."
"I really enjoyed this book because it displays all the troubles
and excitement a child and their friends face during middle school.
It also references the characters, adventure themes, planet, and
technologies in the actual Star Wars movies." -Owl
"Brown has taken his skill for making the day-to-day of a
science fiction universe entertaining, and has expanded it on a
wider scale. Old and new fans of George Lucas'' creation will find
something fun in Star Wars: Jedi Academy."
