It's bedtime in the Star Wars galaxy, and Darth Vader's parenting skills are tested anew in this delightful follow-up to the breakoutNew York Times bestsellersDarth Vader™ and Son andVader's™ Little Princess. In this Episode, the Sith Lord must soothe his rambunctious twins, Luke and Leia-who are not ready to sleep and who insist on a story. As Vader reads, the book looks in on favorite creatures, droids, and characters, such as Yoda, R2-D2, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, Admiral Ackbar, Boba Fett, and many others as they tuck in, yawn, and settle down to dream. As ever, Jeffrey Brown's charming illustrations and humor glow throughout, playing on children's book conventions to enchant adultsand kids alike.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For the kids Wasn't that bad. Aimed at the younger audience.
Date published: 2017-02-22
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Father's Day gift We did buy it for Christmas for our 7 year old nephew along with the Vader and Son book. He seemed to really enjoy them; although, they're more aimed for adults given the humour.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Bedtime Picture Book This book is very different than the previous two in the series. This one is the most aimed at children, being a picture book. It is a good night themed bedtime storybook with one sentence per page. There are a couple of "Goodnight Moon" type pages but the story does have a little plot as Vader tries to get the twins to bed by reading them a bedtime story. It's not particularly funny, though perhaps slightly grin producing. The book covers characters from all various Star Wars movies, so is best for the complete Star Wars fan. The art is just what we've come to expect from Jeffrey Brown by this point and if you are a fan of his, you'll want to add this to your collection.

Editorial Reviews

Episode Eight P.M.: Bedtime." Darth Vader may rule the galaxy, but that doesn't mean he can get his twins, Luke and Leia, to go to sleep. They beg him to read them a bedtime story, and the tale takes readers across the Star Wars universe, incorporating characters and references from all the movies, including Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It is adult fans who are most likely to know who Ahsoka is, to be amused by baby Han and Chewie unable to sleep in "this wretched hive of scum and villainy," or to laugh at Admiral Ackbar's line, "It's a bedtime snack!" And thanks to the overall silly content, even if little ones don't catch all the references, they're likely to get a kick out of this, too. The pages are filled with Brown's cartoony and detailed art, giving readers and listeners alike a lot to enjoy? A perfect choice for nerdy parents."-BooklistHoliday Gift Guide Pick "A fun, appropriate gift for the child in your life, and an even more adorable gift for the adult Star Wars fans out there."-Geeks of Doom"Stars Wars lovers and their children will giggle as Darth Vader attempts to coax his twins - Luke and Leia, of course - to sleep in Goodnight Darth Vader by Jeffrey Brown. The rhyming book features fantastic illustrations and imagined scenarios about what the Star Wars universe looks and sounds like at bedtime." Savvy Sassy Moms"I would like to start with a small request.I would like Jeffrey Brown to continue to make "Star Wars" books..forever. He started with "Darth Vader and Son" and then "Vader's Little Princess" and now "Goodnight Darth Vader", which is the best of them all. ? If you have kids, this is a must purchase.if you don't and still love "Star Wars", this is still a must purchase." -MediaMikes"Goodnight Darth Vader quite simply is the perfect bedtime book for your youngest kids. It's filled with gorgeous artwork and lots of scenes of the various characters of Star Wars getting ready for bed. This 64 page hardcover won't take long to read, but will hopefully put your children in just the right mindset to fall asleep. And for us older Star Wars fans, there's some nice nods to the films."-Roqoo Depot"Goodnight Darth Vader is fun for the whole family."-Family Choice Awards" Goodnight Darth Vader by Jeffrey Brown is a great gift book for the Star Wars fan in your life. I think it will delight anyone with a healthy sense of humor. For parents like me, it means I get to read a book to my son that we both enjoy instead of it being a one sided affair. It probably also means I read to him even more, which is a great thing. I recommend picking this one up. I have the other books in the series too but I think this is my favorite by far."-MakingStarWars.net"
