Hi gang, I just bought the Storybook version of ROTS for my kids - after I had a look and made sure there were no pictures of the barbecue that were going to scar them for life.
Interestingly enough, reading through this book made me remember that I had loved the OT Storybook versions as a kid - as a matter of fact I think the first version of a SW story I ever took in was the ANH Storybook (I was 5 when the movie came out, and didn't see it for the better part of a year).
Having recently looked through the Storybooks again (I don't have EpI or EpII, but I hope to change that soon), I realize that they usually have something interesting in terms of photography or story that didn't make the movies:
ANH - pics of Luke looking up with the binos, and with him meeting Biggs
ESB - a story bit about snow creatures attacking Echo base
ROTS - a pic of Yoda's shuttle on approach to Dagobah
I would highly recommend that everyone have a look at these, either in the store or in the library. They're written pretty well and manage to get the nuts and the bolts of the stories across very nicely. The size of the books and the pictures inside them make them well worth the few minutes it would take to look them over.
Anyone else like these?
