|From Darth Vader and Son|
This weekend, my wonderful nephew turned two years old. Naturally, what did I get him? Books, books, and more books. (Well, that and an awesome Pound Puppy stuff animal that makes "happy puppy noises" because he is obsessed with dogs.) Given that my brother is kind of a huge nerd (in the best way possible, of course. :-p He works for Google), I thought the Star Wars-themed Darth Vader and Son would be appropriate.
Unfortunately, they already had it. Buuuuut that roadblock did allow me to do a little hunting to find that a new story in the series of board books will be coming out later this summer, Goodnight Darth Vader.
Pre-ordering for the win!
The latest book is a bedtime story in which Darth Vader has to sooth many Star Wars characters to sleep. Check it out: “In this Episode, the Sith Lord must soothe his rambunctious twins, Luke and Leia—who are not ready to sleep and who insist on a story. As Vader reads, the book looks in on favorite creatures, droids, and characters, such as Yoda, R2-D2, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, Admiral Ackbar, Boba Fett, and many others as they tuck in, yawn, and settle down to dream.”
The book comes out on July 22nd in advance of San Diego Comic-Con where Brown will be signing books. (via GalleyCat)It seems Chronicle Books has also posted a trailer of this fun-filled intergalactic board book, so for a little silliness this Monday, let's give it a watch:
