Star Wars Creatures Big & Small
This is a cute little book with drawings and rhyming poems that describe all the weird animals that show up in every Star Wars movie so far. There are forty creatures from very small to very big. Yoda starts and ends the book. He says it’s an adventure because “truly wonderful every creature is.” My favorite animals are porgs and puffer pigs because porgs are the smallest and cutest animals of them all, and when the puffer pigs get scared they puff themselves up with air and float away. My least favorite animal is the mynoch, an ugly, bat-like creature that lives inside the space slug. It eats wires, and almost grounded the Millenium Falcon when it landed on an asteroid.
The creatures drawn in the book are much cuter than the creatures in the movies. For example, the mynochs are creepy in The Empire Strikes Back, but the drawing makes them look cute.
The sarlacc actually looks pretty much the same, except it has more teeth in the movie. At the end of the book, there’s a chart of all the animals from littlest to biggest in order. The most dangerous animal in the book is probably the biggest: the summa-verminoth, which can catch and eat spaceships. I really like this book because it’s about Star Wars.
