I could only rate this 4 stars. Since this is a gift, I have not personally tried the recipes. I based my rating from observing my grandsons (ages 6 and 3) and their father's reactions. This was a Christmas gift and once they opened it, the boys forgot about the remaining gifts to be opened. The delicious illustrations gave them an appetite for most of the recipes. They love their Star Wars and enjoyed seeing their favorite characters become edible sources from another galaxy!
I gave this to my 10 year old son and he really loves this (picky eater, but still a hit). The pictures are great, recipes are pretty easy, and pages are "wipeable" as well. We have made 3 recipes so far and plan to finish the others together.
I purchased this book for a friend who is hooked on Star Wars and as a light, joke gift I think it will be perfect. Somehow I did not realize it was much more like a children's cookbook though. This is what would make me hesitate to recommend it. Other than that it fits what I wanted, I enjoyed the illustrations and the recipe names.
My son requested The Star Wars Cook Book II for Christmas. The search engine brought up a number of options but, I went straight to Overstock.com. The price was right so I bought the first Star Wars Cook Book as well. My son was amazed, "How did you find this?" Should I tell him?
This second cookbook for Star Wars fans is a great addition to any young persons collection. The recipes are easy to make and very good tasting. Any young Star Wars fan who also likes to cook will enjoy this book. The book is of high quality.
