Darth Vader and Son


Let me start by saying that I am not a Star Wars fan. I just don't get it. But this book, my friends, is pure brilliance. Jeffrey Brown paints us a laugh-out-loud story of what it would look like if Darth Vader had to take an active role in raising his four year old son, Luke. It's super funny because the comics are full of truth, whether you are a regular-ol' parent, or the Dark Lord of the Sith. And I'm proof that you don't have to even like Star Wars to find it funny. Or be a parent. Because I'm still laughing as I flip through this book. We had a great time at the book store today, reading out-loud, our favourite pages.

So whether you're like me and you just have to own a book like this one, or are in the market for a great gift idea, this is the book for you. And for an extra 26 seconds of your time, I invite you to watch the book trailer below.
