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."
"Best-selling Brown''s naive, sketchy black-and-white
illustrations are the perfect match for this journal-style comics
hybrid, sure to appeal to fans of Jeff Kinney''s Wimpy Kid series."
"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."
