“It says that the Force has a light side and a dark side,” said Chrisolo Robin.
“I think,” sighed Chew, “that I may be a little too heavy for the light side.”
In the history of Star Wars adaptations, none have ever been quite as adorkable as Wookiee the Chew: The House at Chew Corner. James Hance is the nerdy dad responsible for this children’s book; he wrote and illustrated it himself as an affectionate tribute to George Lucas, A.A. Milne, and E.H. Shepard.
The book follows Wookiee the Chew and his best friend Chrisolo Robin, with R2-D2 as Droidlet, one adorably unfortunate Eeyore-AT-AT, and an owl that bears a striking resemblance to Obi-Wan Kenobi. Chew has quite the adventure and faces all kinds of perils, including the most frightening one of all: a very rumbly tummy.
The House at Chew Corner is absolutely packed with Star Wars references that will bring a smile to your face when you’re reading this to your wee Padawan at night. And how awesome will it be for your kid to know and love Wookiee the Chew and Chrisolo Robin as kids and then see them grow into Chewie and Han when you properly introduce them to the Force?
This one is a must-have for any nerdy parents who want to start their little ones on Star Wars early.
