The Star Wars Storybook

The Star Wars Storybook is an adaption of the first Star Wars movie (i.e. Episode 4) for kids, published by Scholastic Books in 1978. It is chock-full of stills from the movie including several that didn't make it into the final cut of the film. I ordered it through my school for $1.50 and it arrived in my eager little hands on 22 February 1979. About thirty years later I brought it out of storage for my son, who has become the resident Star Wars fan in the household.

Kid-friendly robot pals grace the cover.

A great shot of Darth Vader on the back cover.
