A 3-D cardboard construction of the Millennium Falcon emerges behind the die-cut cover of this oversize board book/mock owner's manual ("Congratulations on your purchase of a Corellian Engineering Corporation [CEC] YT-1300 light freighter!"). Turning the pages lifts sections of the ship away layer by layer, revealing the internal mechanisms, while sidebars and diagrams explore the vessel's technology. Stills of Han Solo and Chewbacca along with quotations recall moments from the films. The detailed illustrations should delight mechanically inclined readers; here's hoping other titles are in the works using the book's brilliant "peel-away" format. All ages. (Sept.)
