Read, You Must: Han & Chewie's "Adventures in Hyperspace"

What were Han Solo & Chewbacca up to before they met Luke & Obi-Wan? They were zipping across the galaxy running not-very-legal shipments for shady characters like Jabba the Hutt! Those times have been depicted in grown-up novels and comics but here's one of the first stories for kids to tell those tales.

The two "Adventures in Hyperspace" chapter books from Scholastic are full of fun illustrations and the stories by frequent Star Wars author Ryder Windham are entertaining and engaging. There was apparently going to be a third book in the series. We'll see about that, but for now I recommend you check out #1 Fire Ring Race and #2 Shinbone Showdown.
