Definitely meant for younger readers.

I got into this story thinking I could get more meat out of its corresponding episodes in Rebels, similar to how Rebels - The Rebellion Begins and Rebels - Ezra's Gamble, were written. They provided insight, a little backstory, and expounded on scenes I didn't even think needed explaining but went off without a hitch.

This book, however... it's like the equivalent of reading the episode summaries on wiki? I found my eyes going over the words as if they were o

This was my least favorite of the Rebels books I have read so far, simply because of the jumps in stories and the lack of character insight that I usually glean from these. However, it was still an enjoyable read and great way to revisit the events in the respective episodes of Rebels. I have grown to appreciate the series more and more as it continued in later seasons, but the books also have increased how I value the events of the show as well, especially the first season that these mostly per ...more

Nothing innovative or new here, just a simple retelling of specific episodes from the Rebels series.

I was very pleased with this chapter book for Grades 1-4. It will probably only appeal to Star Wars fans, but I thought it was well-written. The action gets you immediately involved in the story and the presentation is engaging with illustrations interspersed.

This is adaptation of three episodes of Rebels, one of which was already adapted by Kogge in a much in-depth format. I have no problems with adapting existing visual media like films or TV, but we don't get much out of these adaptations, especially the adaptation of "Rise of the Old Masters" which could have been written as a great character study of Kanan, but like so many books for young readers, decides it wants to treat children like they are shallow and stupid and unable to handle more comp ...more

My 5 year old liked it pretty well, but for me it often felt like reading in an unknown language.
