Lets take a look at a few of these fun (and shhhh! educational) books.  Up first Angry Birds Star Wars.  This book is based on the wildly popular new Angry Birds game, which takes the tried and true Angry Birds formula and adds a coat of Star Wars to it.  The book takes this formula and adds a more educational spin on it.  Not only does the book cover Angry Birds and Star Wars, but takes the ‘Star’ part of Star Wars and runs with it.  With this book the reader learns about the science and technology behind Star Wars while also covering the characters and settings in which the game take place.  The book covers topics like hover crafts and planet Kepler 16b.  All this on wonderfully bright and colorful pages, filled with illustrations and huge pictures.  This book would fit well on the bookshelf of Angry Birds fans and Star Wars fans of all ages.
