Jef­frey pub­lished Vader’s Lit­tle Princess in 2013, and Good­night Darth Vader in 2014. This year, Darth Vader and Friends fea­tures more of our favourite Star Wars char­ac­ters.

“The idea be­gan with think­ing on C-3PO and R2-D2 (with a work­ing ti­tle of LOLC3POR2D2BFF), and then I thought of all the other best friends I could write about, from Han and Chewie to Vader and the Em­peror,” says Jef­frey. “What I never an­tic­i­pated was how much kids would like the books, and ev­ery­one from hard­core Star Wars fans to peo­ple who never even saw the films,” he con­tin­ues.
