Horn Book Review

In this companion to Darth Vader and Son (with the same adult perspective), Brown imagines life for Princess Leia if her father, Darth Vader, had raised her. Episodic comic panels provide an amusing mash-up of stereotypical father/daughter behavior and movie story line (Leia: "I hate you!!" Vader: "Yes! Use your hate!"). (c) Copyright 2013.
