Hello Gemmies! I have a new book review to share with you today. Please note: I received a digital ARC of this book (via NetGalley) from its publisher in exchange for an honest and fair review.
Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Travelers Guide to Batuu is the travel guide I didn't know I needed. I am actually planning a trip to Galaxy's Edge next year so the opportunity to review this guide came right on time! I absolutely love that it's written as if you are going to another country or world and not a theme park. There is so much information provided, including maps, identification guides for flora and fauna, protocol droids, speeders, and currency. The Merchant row section was especially helpful and includes beautiful color photos of each shop and some of their specialties. I'll have to make sure I order a Fuzzy Tauntaun at Oga's Cantina when I arrive! There is even a small section on Bantha Milk! There is also a guide to the various people of Batuu including the First Order. I hope I don't run into any of the executioner troopers on my trip!
This travel guide is fun and very thorough and even includes an alphabet for the local language Aurebesh, complete with descriptions of the local customs and holidays. Also included packing recommendations. If you are a Star Wars fan or planning a trip to Galaxy's Edge then you need to get this book! It not only provides helpful information, but would also make for a nice souvenir. Published by Quatro Publishing Group, Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Travelers Guide to Batuu is set to release on July 21, 2020 and is available for Pre-Order from all major booksellers. I give Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Travelers Guide to Batuu 5 out of 5 gems. Happy Reading!
