Wednesdays with David: The Way of the Apprentice

Star Wars Jedi Quest: The Way of the Apprentice
By Jude Watson
Scholastic Paperbacks 2002
176 pages
From the library 

The story: Anakin Skywalker is strong in the ways of the force. He's a good pilot and great with a lightsaber, but he's a bit of a loose cannon. His quick temper worries his teacher Obi-Wan Kenobi. When the pair is on a mission, Anakin and Obi-Wan become separated. Can Anakin and three other apprentices save the Jedi Masters?

Mama opines: It's confession time. I only read a few chapters of this with David. The rest of it was all on his own. But I have to confess that while I'm a bit taken aback by my little boy's love of battle, this Star Wars fan is proud to be adding a new little Jedi to the bunch.

Thoughts from David: Well, another Star Wars book read today. Now let's get on to my favorite characters. #1 - Anakin Skywalker. #2 - Obi-Wan Kenobi. #3 - Soara Antana. That's all. Now, I present my favorite thing from the story. I like that they go on a mission.
Favorite part: When Anakin slices seven droids in a row with one swing!

Happy Reading! 


  1. Beautiful review, Lindsey! It is amazing that you read only the first few chapters with David and he read most of the book on his own. The book, at 176 pages, is quite long. David is a really impressive reader. Beautiful picture too.

    1. He is a big reader. He comes by it honestly - I've loved to read since I was little too!
