DK's Big Idea Series, Solo A Star Wars Story The Official Guide and Giveaway

We enjoy watching the Star Wars saga. The book Solo A Star Wars Story The Official Guide written by Pablo Hidalgo will be enjoyed by fans curious to know about Han Solo's adventures, and discover the places, faces, and things he encounters. It gives details on the things we see in the movie, so we have a better understanding of the purpose and functions of things that come up in the movie. For example, Han Solo has an electronically shielded pocket in his jacket for unprotected data cards, and about other gadgets on the characters and what they do. The close up pictures with captions are fun to read.
