Star Wars fans take note: Jeffrey Brown's Darth Vader and Son is a must-read! This is absolutely hilarious. It's full of parenting humor starring Darth Vader and his son Luke, and full of inside jokes and movie references for Star Wars fans.
In an alternative Star Wars galaxy, Vader is raising Luke. "Episode Three and a half: DARTH VADER AND SON. Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, leads the Galactic Empire against the heroic Rebel Alliance. Before he can take care of the Rebels, Lord Vader must first take care of his son--four-year-old Luke Skywalker. . . ."
The son and his black-clad father go on outings, go shopping, go on space-ship trips, hang out around the house, play together. Luke is a typical four year old, and Vader is a typical harried parent of a four year old. Brown cracked me up as he put his silly twist on Star Wars and Luke and Vader's strange relationship. I do have to acknowledge that my teenage sons did not find this book as amusing as I did. They are Star Wars fans to be sure; I suppose parents who are Star Wars fans will appreciate the book most. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
