New Poems In I Wish I Had A Wookiee Are For the Young At Heart

We’ve all known the pure delight of ripping open a brand new Star Wars action figure or imagined ourselves in the cockpit of one of the many high-flying hunks of junk in a galaxy far, far away, alongside our loyal Wookiee co-pilot, Chewbacca. In his new book, Star Wars: I Wish I Had a Wookiee, Ian Doescher explores these playful hallmarks of childhood with a collection of over 75 whimsical and original poems illustrated by Tim Budgen.

StarWars.com is excited to reveal the charming cover art for the forthcoming book as well as two exclusive spreads featuring the titular poem as well as “Dad’s Luke Skywalker Figurine.” In a format reminiscent of the often absurdly hilarious books by Shel Silverstein, Budgen’s artwork visualizes a 10-year-old’s dreams of playing fetch with a pet AT-AT, a little girl escaping the Empire in her T-16 Skyhopper, and more while Doescher, who previously penned the Shakespearean versions of the Skywalker saga, captures the precocious and imaginative play inspired by the Star Wars galaxy, with rhyming poems that are suitable for young fans and the young at heart.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
