TL;DR: Short children's story, with the main cast of the Star Wars franchise (Luke Skywalker, C3PO, R2D2, Han Solo etc.), with several beautiful illustrations, about wildlife protection.

Story: The story is about protecting whales ... and finding Darth Vaders Glove. You see after the destruction of the second Death Star the imperium united behind the Grand Moff council, who elected Trioculus (a tree eyed human = tri & oculus) to be the next emperor. To secure his seat, he needs a symbol of power. The right hand of Darth Vader was cut off during the Battle of Endor, but luckily exactly this one glove was made out of an indestructible material. Whoever finds it, will have a much greater claim on the emperor's throne. And thus the search for the Glove begins.

On Admiral Ackbar's home planet (Mon Calamar) evil imperial whalers are hunting the last whales to extinction, admiral Ackbar contacts Luke Skywalker and his faithful droids (C3PO & R2D2) to help against this great injustice. When our heroes arrive, they realise that the Emperor is on the planet too, searching for the glove.
Can our heroes save the whales?
Does Trioculus find Darth Vaders Glove?

You have to read it for yourself to find out!

Characters: Since we know all of the characters from the movies (or the previous books) there is no real need to linger on their characters, none the less the authors managed to capture the main characteristics of each of the main characters. C3PO complains all the time, R2D2 is helpful and silent, Luke is stoic etc.

Overall Conclusion: I enjoyed it. I haven't read it in decades, but I still remembered pretty much everything. The illustrations are great. The story feels like an episode of Captain Planet (which was a childrens animated television show about environmentalism and wildlife protection). It is short, to the point, with nice characterisations and action.

Rating: For adults: 2/5
For boys age 6-9 who like Star Wars 5/5 excellent children's book.
For me: 4/5 I enjoyed it. 😄 only 4/5 since I remembered almost everything.

I wanted to finish up this set of books with celebrating "May 4th" and when I read this back in my teen years I LOVED them. I don't care what people say, these are so fun to read if you are a fan of the classics and hate the disney films like I do. But also next you should read about their kids in the "Jedi Knights book" . Reading these made me realize how much I have missed the Star Wars books.

I first read this when I was a teenager and was in my crazy Star Wars obsession phase. As it was recently Star Wars Day, I decided to return to these books and highly entertaining and fun to revisit.
