Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Visual Dictionary

Reviewed by:

…you will learn the details behind mysteries seen on-screen
Discover in-depth information about the characters of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi, through this sleek visual dictionary about the newest players in the Star Wars movies by a Lusasfilm publisher.  Each two-page spread identifies the character/s, including details on their location, history and technology used by the character/s. Readers will be captivated by a world where the New Republic, the First order and the Resistance exist. 
Trek fans will delight in the details, whether visual or written.  Each spread includes a large photograph of character, as well as smaller images that recount parts of the movie. Labelled photographs explain places and objects in this almost believable universe. The text is broken into chunks, along with labelled images and descriptions of each image.  Much of the vocabulary is written at middle school or higher level. The downsides of this ‘dictionary’ may be that it is not organized alphabetically. A table of contents and index help navigate the dictionary.
Regardless of age, this book will be treasured by Trek fans of all ages.  Recommended for junior/senior high.
