"Learn to code with C-3PO and Darth Vader. This easy guide lets them build their own characters, navigate spaceships through an asteroid belt and go on jet-pack adventures."
"<i>Star Wars Coding Projects</i> is a fantastic introduction to an increasingly important skill. It's an ideal gift for kids who are new to coding and should set them up with both the knowledge and confidence to create their own games and animations using Scratch."
"With the high production values you expect from DK books, tons of lovely artwork, and a whole host of interesting programming projects, it's an instant win."
"My son loved the projects and immediately book marked a few of the projects to try with his Dad. The book is really well made, he loved the colour coded pages and the progress bar which runs along the top of each page. My son really enjoyed reading this book and was excited to get started."

Star Wars Coding Projects is a step-by-step visual guide to designing and coding in Scratch. The setting is as big as your imagination. Your favourite Star Wars characters will guide you through fun projects, animations, and games as you learn how to create and code. Draw your own Star Wars™ inspired sprites to use in the projects.
