Blast Off bookcoverBlast Off
by Rob Colson

BLAST OFF is the easiest Star Wars book to date. The text is large and the sentences are short and simple. There's no real story, but rather favorite characters are introduced. Here's an example:
Meet C-3PO.
He is a droid.
He can speak many languages.
Children should really like the pictures.
