            • This review is brought to you by my oldest son, A.  
        • Synopsis:
In The Starcrusher Trap, the Separatists unleash a terrifying new weapon on Republic-held systems – an enormous starship, the Starcrusher, is destroying every ship sent against it!

Yoda agrees to a risky plan to stop the Starcrusher, and assembles a Jedi strike force that includes Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mace Windu, and Ki-Adi-Mundi. Too late, the Jedi realize that the Starcrusher mission has become a trap – one specifically designed to kill Jedi!

A’s Thoughts:

This book is called Star Wars: The Clone Wars The Starcrusher Trap. In it, Jedi Masters Ki-Adi-Mundi, Obi-wan Kenobi, Mace Windu, Jyl Somtay, Anakin Skywalker, and Padawan Ahsoka Tano, try to blow up a big Separitist ship that is bigger than their own ship. The pictures were good, because they had lots of detail, like how the artist drew the Jedi’s capes and lightsabers. The author did a good job describing things like the ship. I thought it was a good story because it talked about more than just the Starcrusher. It also talked about what other characters were doing.

A’s Rating:

A, my oldest son(10 years old), reviewed this book as 5 Penguins!  I hope that you will give him some comment love so he will come back and review more for us in the future.

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?


Lisa’s Answer: I love The Outlander Series by Diana Galdadon.  I would have to write myself into that series as so one who was close with Claire so that I could go one these amazing adventures with her.  I would love to visit Scotland in both of the periods of time she travels too.  Not to mention living through all of that history.

Sure it would be hard, I mean giving up all of the conveniences we have today for horses and no technology but I still think that it would be an awesome adventure and probably make me appreciate the things I do have a lot more when I was able to come back through the standing stones to my modern world.

Outlander (20th Anniversary Edition)Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander Series #2)Voyager (Outlander Series #3)Drums of Autumn (Outlander Series #4)The Fiery Cross (Outlander Series #5)A Breath of Snow and Ashes (Outlander Series #6)An Echo in the Bone (Outlander Series #7)

This was a pretty easy question for me.  What about you? What book would your write yourself into?  Please be sure to let me know if you are a new follower.
