Holiday Read #5 ‘The Jedi Academy: The Force Oversleeps,’ by Jarrett Krosoczka.

Read this book you must. It gets the Stormtrooper Book Club seal of approval!


It’s Victor Starspeeder’s second year at Jedi Academy and things are not going as he planned – he just can’t stop over-sleeping and Master Yoda is getting mad! To make matters worse, his tardiness has meant that he’s missed out on the role he wanted in the school play and there are rumours going round that his older sister is actually a sith!

He’s going to have to use the Force to make it through.


Book Boy read this one on the long journey home from France via car and ferry. As you can see, he was engrossed!

The text is presented in an engaging mix of comic strip, datapad, newspaper articles and diary entries which is perfect for keeping readers absorbed and interested. Full of humour and Star Wars references, I can understand why these are a huge hit with their readers.

May the Force be with you.

Library Girl.
