In comparison with his previous Star Wars pop-up book (entitled Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy), I'll have to say I prefer the previous book which is filled with stunning pop ups that will make your jaw drops when you see it (especially with the darth vader head pop up). Nevertheless, this book doesnt lack the same punch that will keep you mesmerized.
In conclusion, if you're a pop-up book collector (and chances are you're familiar with Matthew Reinhart's past works), this book is just as good as his other pop-up books and definitely worthy to find a place in your pop-up books collection. I'd highly recommend it!
If you're Star Wars fan and not a pop-up book collector or never seen a pop-up book before, then you're in for an adventure that will last for many years to come! and in fact, I would recommend to order Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy as well, if you have not already own one! These 2 books are a MUST BUY!
Nowhere is that more true than in STAR WARS: A GALACTIC POP-UP ADVENTURE, Matthew Reinhart's follow-up to his earlier STAR WARS: A POP-UP GUIDE TO THE GALAXY. His earlier volume was a sort of road map to the main characters, geographic locales, vehicles, and vessels composing the Star Wars saga. This new volume is more of a narrative, loosely telling the story of the movies that make up Episodes 1 through 3 of the epic. The first two-page spread is dominated by a scene from young Anakin Skywalker's podrace, while the final spread shows a somewhat older and much more jaded Anakin donning the mask of Darth Vader for the first time.
I won't bother recounting the story of the book; after all, virtually the entire audience for this book will already be more than conversant in the Clone Wars, Order 66, and the rest of the plot unfolding as dramatically as Reinhart's paper sculptures. This is a good thing, too, because the nature of Reinhart's pop-up constructions means that recounting a single linear story is difficult, if not impossible.
So, for the most part, Reinhart doesn't even try. Instead, he focuses on the clever creation not only of these massive page-straddling sculptures that emerge from each spread but also of the dozens of smaller but no less impressive constructions that pop out of literally every corner of the book. Both Reinhart and Sabuda have long structured their pop-up books this way --- with a central focal point and several "mini books" poised around the periphery, each of which contains mini pop-ups as well. What's different and very exciting here is the way in which those smaller books unfold. Rather than working as conventional books, opening in only a single direction, they frequently challenge the reader to discover which side is going to open, which flap will hold the next surprise. Opening not just left to right but also up, down, and even diagonally, these small "books" are wonders of design in their own right.
Perhaps my description of the complexity of every single part of this volume gives you the idea that this book is not for the small or especially clumsy; it's true that very young children might grow frustrated with the unpredictable design, a design that also might make this pop-up even more fragile than most. STAR WARS: A GALACTIC POP-UP ADVENTURE is definitely meant for upper-elementary aged kids, teens, and grown-ups, all those Star Wars fans looking for the greatest new retelling of their favorite story. They've certainly found it here.
