Gift Guide Pick
Star Wars has fans of all ages from five to ninety-five, and Christmas is a great time of year to get gifts for those folks. There are an enormous amount of fan paraphernalia to choose from and getting a gift can sometimes feel overwhelming. Here are a few Star Wars books from Chronicle Books that I’d like to highlight that are a definite must for the Star Wars fan in your life!
Bring You Wisdom, I Will
The ultimate Jedi Master from Star Wars is also the perfect totem for wisdom in all of life’s pursuits. Having explored the galaxy and studied the Force for hundreds of years, Yoda has passed on his knowledge of the Jedi arts to generations of the galaxy’s greatest heroes. Now you can have your own Yoda sensei in your life! This one-of-a-kin, hand-painted Yoda statue comes with a customizable galactic display stand, a booklet of Yoda’s most inspirational musings alongside full-color illustrations, and a sheet of removable stickers of select quotes. Perfect for the office, mantle, bedside table, or anywhere else the Force might come in handy. (Maybe the car dashboard?!)
Yoda’s first piece of wisdom? When 900 years old you reach, look as good you will not. HA HA! When you read these classic Yoda quotes you hear only his voice, and it makes a fun and unique gift for the adult Star Wars fan.
A Star Wars Cookbook
By Robin Davis
The Star Wars Cookbook II
Darth Malt and More Galactic Recipes
By Frankie Frankeny, Wesley Martin
These two books are sure to have your kids begging to be in the kitchen! Wookie Cookies and The Star Wars Cookbook II are full of kid friendly recipes from all over the galaxy. The recipes include Star Wars twists on classic dishes, and a host of recipes that sound stranger than they are!
The Star Wars Cookbooks is a chance for you and your kids to have fun cooking together! The pages are full of colorful photos, depicting the recipe along with action figure characters. The hard cover books are spiral bound so they are easy to lay out on the counter top for easy access, and the glossy pages wipe clean in case your protocol droid forgets to make sure the blender lid is locked.
The Sounds of Star Wars®
By J. W. Rinzler
Foreward by Ben Burtt
For the first time Star Wars fans can hear replicas of the amazing sounds used throughout the movies! Some of the audio that can be replicated with the book include sounds like the lion’s roar used in the Millennium Falcon’s engine. There are MORE than 250 unique sound effects in the book as well as more than 300 photographs. It encompasses the original movies as well as The Clone Wars. To really get an idea of what this book is like here’s a video.
As a family member of two fanatical Star Wars fans, I am sure that these books will be appreciated when they are found under the tree! Much of it will be nostalgic for my husband, and a lot of it will be new for my daughter! And yet all these books make great presents for both of them!
These books and many, many more make for fun gifts any Star Wars fans will enjoy! For more information visit http://www.chroniclebooks.com. Plus here’s a special offer for you!
