The cover for the third installment in author Jeffery Brown's young readers series Star Wars: Jedi Academy now has a cover. StarWars.com revealed the cover for Jedi Academy: The Phantom Bully today. Check it out below,
For those unfamiliar with the series, StarWars.com describes the book (and series) as,
Featuring Brown’s trademark cartoon-meets-storybook art style and humor, the cover finds that for all a Jedi’s powers, loose-leaf paper is still a great threat. In addition, there’s the pressure of having Yoda and a Zabrak for teachers! But who is the phantom bully…? Here’s the official summary of the upcoming book:
It’s hard to believe this is Roan’s last year at Jedi Academy. He’s been busier than ever learning to fly (and wash) starships, swimming in the Lake Country on Naboo, studying for the Jedi obstacle course exam, and tracking down dozens of vorpak clones — don’t ask. But now, someone is setting him up to get in trouble with everyone at school, including Yoda. If he doesn’t find out who it is, and fast, he may get kicked out of school! Why can’t middle school just be easy. . .
This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school — all told through one boy’s comics, journal entries, letters, sketches, e-mails, and more.
Even though I'm probably not the target audience for this series, I can't tell you how much I loved the first two installments (read my review of the fist book here). I love the way Brown seamlessly blends the Star Wars galaxy with very real experiences that anyone who survived middle school can understand. No word yet on The Phantom Bully will be released.
