This Saturday, October 11 marks the third annual Star Wars Reads Day, an international day-long celebration of literacy and all things Star Wars. What a great opportunity to foster your kids’ love of reading with their favourite science fiction stories and characters! Look for an event near you, but even if you can’t make it out, celebrate the day with this FREE Star Wars Reads Day III Activity Kit chock full of Star Wars crafts, activities, and drawing and colouring pages!
As a proud participant in Star Wars Reads Day III, DK Books has curated a Star Wars boutique with all books 30% off and a giveaway for a copy of Star Wars: The Complete Vehicle Cross-Sections and Blueprints.
We are so on top of this! DK Books has tons of reading material for the kids and for adults too! Our Star Wars DK Readers will be perfect for Tee, and hubs will be joining her in some Star Wars reading with these books kindly sent to us for review.
Star Wars Complete Vehicles is the definitive compilation volume comprising material from 4 previous Incredible Cross-Sections books and updated from the 2007 edition of Star Wars: Complete Cross-Sections.
The book boasts hundreds of detailed illustrations and cross sections, including over 50 full-colour double spreads of Star Wars space and landcraft. Every detail is carefully drawn and labelled, sure to fascinate the most discriminating fan.
Learn more about iconic Star wars vehicles like the TIE fighter, X-wing starfighter, Millenium Falcon, Imperial Star Destroyer, and the AT-AT (as shown on the cover). You’ll also find four extra special fold out spreads spotlighting the Droid Control Ship, Republic Gunship, Invisible Hand, and the Death Star. The vehicles are also catalogued in the back with quick reference technical data cards as well as listed in a full index.
As the kid who took apart his Star Wars vehicles to see how they worked, the details, mechanics, and theory (hypothetical of course) behind these vehicles appeals to the engineer in hubs. This is a great reference work and a must in any serious Star Wars fan’s collection.
“Since its release in 2011, the massively multiplayer online role playing game Star Wars: The Old Republic has captivated thousands of gamers and Star Wars fans alike. Now comes the ultimate in-depth guide to the turbulent and fascinating world featured in the game — The Old Republic.”
Hubs doesn’t play Star Wars: The Old Republic, but he has played and enjoyed both Knights of the Old Republic I & II on the XBox. The Star Wars Old Republic Encyclopedia covers the time period 3500 years before the movies and fleshes out the history of the Star Wars universe we all know and love.
Lavishly illustrated throughout with screenshots and character models from the game, hand drawn illustrations, and paintings, the art does a good job of capturing the Star Wars feel without simply replicating the images. Even if you don’t play the MMO, this beautiful hardcover volume is still of interest to those who want to delve deeper into the Star Wars universe.
Be sure to visit DK Canada’s Star Wars Boutique to get 30% off all books in this great collection! Whether you’re a fan of the classic trilogy, the prequels, LEGO Star Wars, Star Wars: The Close Wars, or the new Star Wars Rebels TV show, there’s something here perfect for you!
