In The Wildlife of Star Wars: A Field Guide, Terry Whitlatch and Bob Carrau offer a faux naturalist's sketchbook of the fauna born of George Lucas and co.'s considerable imagination: the spot-light sloths of the Dagobah Rain Forest, the Peko Pekos of planet Naboo's Gungan Swamp, the gas-filled Beldons of Bespin, which can achieve a girth of 10 kilometers, and a host of other fantastical creations populate this delightful large-format book. Drawings on every page are substantiated by salient pieces of information about habitat, habits and danger-factor.
