In this irresistibly funny follow-up to the breakout bestseller Darth Vader and Son, Vader--Sith Lord and leader of the Galactic Empire--now faces the trials, joys, and mood swings of raising his daughter Leia as she grows from a sweet little girl into a rebellious teenager.
Smart and funny illustrations by artist Jeffrey Brown give classic Star Wars moments a twist by bringing these iconic family relations together under one roof. From tea parties to teaching Leia how to fly a TIE fighter, regulating the time she spends talking with friends via R2-D2's hologram, and making sure Leia doesn't leave the house wearing only a skirted metal bikini, Vader's parenting skills are put hilariously to the test.


This book is just adorable. It’s hard to run a galactic Empire when you’re a single Dad to twins. He has a lot on his plate, poor chap.

This little book contains a series of comic strips dealing with Leia’s childhood years, through to learning to drive the tie-fighter and dating Han. Apparently there is a previous book, Darth Vader and Son. I’m going to have to find that book as well now, because I found this Princess book by accident in the Junior section of our local library! There’s nothing inappropriate, but it’s not really kid material – my son thought the pictures were cute but didn’t really get the jokes when I read a few to him!

There’s not much more to say about this book other than if you’re looking for a Christmas present for a dad with a little princess, look no further.


If you’re looking for other Star Wars present ideas, you might also be interested in the Shakespearean Star Wars books, starting with Verily, A New Hope.

Anni lives in Brisbane, Australia with her young family. She loves everything fantasy and science fiction and believes sleep is really very underrated.
