Darth Vader and Son

Real parenting situations interspersed with hilarious Star Wars references and excellent puns make this comic a joy. For instance, "Use the fork, Luke."
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda
Tom Angleberger (2010)
Dwight, a strange and quiet sixth grader wears a Yoda paper finger puppet that appears to give eerily accurate advice to other kids at school. An awesome read-alike for Diary of a Wimpy Kid..

Featuring the earliest know stories of the Jedi and the Sith, a collection travels back five thousand years before Luke Skywalker's successful assault on the Death Star, when the Sith Lord Marka Ragnos ruled the galaxy, and his death ignited a battle for ascension that would spell the end for his empire-- and nearly the entire galaxy.
The Star Wars Cookbook II
Darth Malt and More Galactic Recipes
Frankie Frankeny (2000)
Pickle Jar Jar, Boss Nass Broccoli (which I assure you needs to be seen to be believed) and Qui-Gon Jinn-ger Snaps. I'm not sure if my favourite part of this book was the inspired names, or the hilarious action figure filled pictures. The cookbook even includes a plastic stencil of Darth Maul to help decorate culinary creations. No matter how you use it, this cookbook is sure to add to any Star Wars Festivities. This is book two, there is a first cookbook, complete with Wookiee Cookies!
