   Good for younger readers
I have read a few real biographies by Mr. Lucas, so I bought this book knowing that it was for younger readers. I found it interesting and hit all the appropriate highlights. There are occasional sidebar pages that talk about tangential subjects like Rock 'n 'Roll, other contemporary film directors and Kenner Star Wars toys. I would recommend this book for a young Star Wars fan to introduce them to the man who created the Galaxy Far, Far Away.
   Good book, but it doesn't say much about his most famous movie.
This book says a lot about George Lucas, but not much about Star Wars.
   Good book
It talks about when he was a teen how he loved vehicles and that when he got his fiat he modeled it into a race car. He then rushed from the library and he fell off the road, getting thrown out of the car and the car crashed into a tree. When he got better, he went to college and made films. He then signed with Warner Bros and made films, then he left and made a film about him American Graffiti. He then got a movie called Star Wars and it became a hit, then he sold it to Disney and then made the last movie in 2015.
   I love this series!
So far '' I bought George Lucas, Dr Seuss, Jim Henson, The Beatles and Walt Disney for my son. These books are a great way for me to introduce the people who have always inspired me to my own children. I believe that reading about various creative talents throughout history is not only a great way to learn, but a great way to inspire them. We always have good conversations when we discuss the people from these books, because we teach each other new things.
   Great book to read about and teaches a great lesson
My third grader need you to write a book report and we are Big George Lucas fans perfect book to learn his paths and struggles taught my son to earn something you have to work through failures and keep trying. Highly recommended.
   just like his dad
He loves Star Wars and George Lucas, just like his father. It will now go in my class library for more kids to enjoy. My son says he wants to be a director when he grows up, so I also received the book Steven Spielberg.
   Loved it
A quick short read, but full of interesting details about the man who created the two greatest franchises in cinema history.
   Great biography!
My son, who is in the 4th grade, used this to write a biography of George Lucas! It was interesting..., written at his level and perfect!
