Children's Book Week: R2-D2 to the Rescue by Ace Landers

Synopsis: "This humorous and action-packed book features all of your favorite heroes and villains in three all-new original stories!"

My Review: I have always been a huge Star Wars fan, and when Munchkin started showing an interest you better believe I encouraged it. His favorite character is R2D2 so I had to pick this book up for him. It is along the lines of a Level 4 reader/ first chapter book and instead of chapters it is more of 3 short stories. They kind of coordinate with the original storyline of the movies, but not quite, they are more appropriate for children (the Lego storylines). The stories are funny and include the familiar and favorite characters from the movies, everything always seems to go wrong but R2D2 is always there to save the day. This is a fun book for those young Star Wars fans.
My Rating: A funny take on some new original stories that feature R2D2 saving the day. We really enjoyed this book even though it is a little long for Munchkin, the fact that they are 3 individual stories instead of chapters really helps break it up for multiple sittings.  We give this one a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
