Staff Reviews

"Sure to excite any Star Wars fan with a healthy sense of humor, this
irreverent graphic novel follows a reluctant young student in his first
year at Jedi Academy. Perfect for anyone who likes the franchise best
when it's not taking itself so seriously."

— Meghan G.


Author-illustrator Jeffrey Brown takes readers to a middle school in a galaxy far, far away.... in this first volume of the New York Times Bestselling series!

This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school -- all told through one boy's comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away...Roan's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy -- a school that he didn't apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now...This inventive novel follows Roan's first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too -- like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force.
