about

New York Times bestselling author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown takes readers to a middle school in a galaxy far, far away . . . .

This incredible, original story captures all of the humour, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school - all told through one boy's comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away . . .

That is, until now.

This inventive novel follows Roan's first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too - like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force.

JEFFREY BROWN is the author/illustrator of the bestselling Darth Vader & Son, which imagines what it would have been like if Darth Vader had raised a young Luke Skywalker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC!! #plumreview This is a fantastic book. My son has read it multiple times and now his brother wants to read it. I enjoyed it as it was a fun and refreshing take on the Star Wars series. Jedi Academy is an excellent book for all fans of Star Wars young and old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Star Wars: Jedi Academy by Jeffery Brown I bought this book for my 6 year old son and it's been read and re-read a dozen times in the 3 months since. It sits by his bed, both because it looks good and because he often just flips it open to any page for a quick, fun read. It is enjoyable for parents too! It is a must have for any child who loves Star Wars and who has a sense of humour. Can't wait for the sequel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 8 year old is reading! This book is getting my son to read, without me pestering him. I actually caught him reading in bed last night after 'lights out'. I'm calling this a WIN!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a cute story! I expected the boy in the book to be Luke, but I actually really enjoyed that it was a unique character. Roan's story was fun, and it was told in an extremely imaginative way! I loved the mix of little doodles, text, and scrapbook-like pages. I'm 22, and bought this book for myself because I find the style to be adorable, and I'm so glad that I got it. It was a wonderful story, and the pictures are enough to make anyone smile when they're having a rough day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So funny! My 6 year old son loved this book! We read it together and we were both laughing out loud in many places. I highly recommend for any Star Wars fan in the house and for those hoping to become Jedi knights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very funny book My son loved this book. He laughed out loud at many parts of the book. He had to read us parts of the book he loved, always a sign of a good book. The illustrations and "comic" like format are well done. We will be buying copies for birthday gifts.
