Daddy Skywalker
»
»

Every parent knows how difficult it can be to look after and raise another human being, but imagine if you had to figure out parenthood while serving as one of the head honchos of the Galactic Empire! In Vader's Little Princess, artist and author Jeffrey Brown paints a hilarious and touching picture of what domestic life would be like for daddy Skywalker, including stresses stemming from Leia's choices in clothing and boyfriends.

Adults and kids who are Star Wars fans will enjoy this book! Read it together and be sure to check out Brown's Darth Vader and Son, which depicts Vader's life raising young Luke.

Haven't finished it yet, but this book has been a fun, thought-provoking read so far. The author is the editor-in-chief of MAKE magazine, which the library has in the magazine section. He tells the story of how he and his family adopted a DIY lifestyle.

If you like this series (and honestly, why wouldn't you?) be sure to check out the feature-length movie, Serenity.
Just give me an opportunity!

Gladwell, best-selling author of the Tipping Point and Blink, provides a fascinating look at how the opportunities given to individuals can have a huge impact on their success later on. Sounds so simple and obvious, but Gladwell has a way of digging deeper into some really thought-provoking examples that makes this book a pleasure to read.


If you're like me and grew up watching the Chicago Bulls and the rest of the NBA during the Jordan, Magic, and Bird years, you'll love this book. Sports Illustrated writer, Jack McCallum, provides a true insider's look at all the drama behind the 1992 men's basketball Olympic "Dream Team."
