What more could a Star Wars fan desire? Reader Jonathan Davis is a very good narrator, and the publishers have thoughtfully added background sounds and music that fit the story exactly. Davis has a young voice (like Luke Skywalker), but he also slides into alien and other characters with right-on characterization. While he doesn't read too fast, the tale rushes forward nevertheless, leaving the 12-year-old mind eager for more. The story takes place after Episode I, with Princess Leah scouring Tatooine with her husband, Han, for a lost art treasure and also telling the story of Darth Vader's mother, Leah's grandmother.
