Publisher's Summary:
Luke and Obi-Wan set out on a mission to Alderaan to rescue Princess Leia. On the way they encounter new friends, old enemies and no small amount of danger!
Complete mazes, codewords and puzzles in the uniquely illustrated, full colour activity book. Then press out the pieces to create your very own X-Wing and TIE fighter models, perfect for recreating the famous Trench Run scene from
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.


Starfighter Workshop: Make Your Own X-Wing & TIE Fighter is a companion publication to last year's R2-D2's Droid Workshop: Make Your Own R2-D2 and follows the same pattern of offering an activity book combined with a press out paper kit. While the Droid Workshop book had just one kit to construct: a R2-D2 model that stood almost one foot tall, Starfighter Workshop has two paper kits to assemble: a X-Wing and a TIE Fighter. Assembly is straightforward when following the instructions although younger ones may find some parts fiddly, especially when constructing the X-Wing's engines, the completed models are impressive. Especially so since the "paper" is actually 2 millimetre thick card. The X-Wing stands 3 inches high and a foot long and the TIE Fighter stands nearly 9 inches by 9 inches. Children will also enjoy the attached story book which on first impressions may look like another retelling of A New Hope, but the story is interwoven with puzzles, wordsearches, spot-the-differences, fact sheets  look-and-finds, that help make the journey to the trench run on the Death Star much more fun. In fact, before the story's final confrontation it pauses so that you can make the models and can re-enact that familiar battle using the models!
This is a fun activity book that will appeal to Star Wars fans of all ages and is a great companion to R2-D2's Droid Workshop.

Starfighter Workshop: Make Your Own X-Wing & TIE Fighter from Egmont Books is available now in the UK.
