Item: Star Wars: Attack of the Clones Little Golden Book
Illustrator: Ethen Beavers
Author: Christopher Nicholas
Publisher: A Golden Book
The full Star Wars saga has been given the Little Golden Book treatment. The Attack of the Clones book not only features Senator Padmé Amidala on the cover, but in six of the illustrations inside the book. We start with the assassination attempt on the Coruscant landing platform. Next, we see Anakin Skywalker saving her from two kouhuns. The Senator travels home to Naboo and we see her with Anakin Skywalker in a meadow. We don’t see her on Tatooine, but when the story moves to Geonosis, we see her captured by Jango Fett and then in the Geonosian arena. Finally, we see Padmé and Anakin marry on Naboo.
I purchased this book July 22, 2015, at Books-a-Million, six days before its official release.
