DK Strikes Back!

The Dorling-Kindersley Visual Dictionaries are all top-notch products, fascinating not only for children, but for adults, as well. The STAR WARS, EPISODE I addition to this line does not disappoint, with page after page of wonderful, detailed photographs of the people, things and places featured in the film. Everything, from lightsabers to battle droids to Darth Maul, is examined closely and exhaustively labeled.The fun doesn't stop with the photographs, however. Written in close concert with Lucasfilm, the book provides greater insight into the film by providing information about even minor characters with little screen time. As a result, the next time readers watch EPISODE I, they'll find themselves recalling these tidbits, and enjoying the movie even more than they did before.Readers, adults and children alike, will find this Visual Dictionary a delight, and it will rarely stay on the shelf. Fun to read cover-to-cover, or just to leaf through, the book is an excellent addition to any STAR WARS fan's collection, and comes very close to being a must-have.

A visual treat for Star Wars fans

"Star Wars, Episode I: The Visual Dictionary" combines text by David West Reynolds with a wealth of excellent full-color photographs. Rather than rely on shots from the film, the book primarily uses still shots that appear to have been purposefully taken for a project like this. This was, in my opinion, a wise choice, since I have noticed that the photos in other movie tie-in books can sometimes be a bit murky. The photos here are crisp and colorful, and really allow you to analyze and enjoy the details.The text comes in the form of easy-to-digest nuggets. The book covers characters, ships, weapons, clothing, robots, animals, and other elements from the movie. The text offers intriguing little tidbits of info about the SW universe (although I imagine that more devoted fans may argue about how "canonical" this info is). A nice aspect of the book is the fact that barely glimpsed elements in the film are given loving attention here. For example, you can "meet" the members of the Jedi Council more intimately. I liked the comparative size chart of Naboo sea monsters. And the fashion-oriented will have a great time exploring the ornate costumes worn by Queen Amidala and others. Overall, this book is a lot of fun.

This book is brilliant!

This book is the ultimate place for all the information about anything from The Phantom Menace. Full of brilliant pictures and diagrams, with information which is clear on concise. This book is great as a reference which you can pull off the shelf anytime to check something. When looking up something, you always learn something new. Buy it!


This Book is really cool. I looked at it in my school library and i saw all the different parts of a destroyer droid, Yoda's lightsaber, and Darth Maul's outfit.

A definate must have for Star Wars fans

This is a great book. I read the whole thing in the bookstore, then I bought it! I look at it at least once a day. There are things in the book that weren't in the movie (did you see the representatives from Alderann? The hair on the female looked like Princess Leia's!). I especially like the 'background' information on the characters, especially on Queen Amidala. You even learned a little about 2 of her handmaidens. I just wish it told more about Obi-Wan Kenobi (like who are his parents? Which is his home planet/system?), he's my favorite. Go Ewan McGregor! Buy it for your collection.
