Chronicle Books will release Jeffrey’ Brown’s Vader’s Little Princess, the sequel to his Darth Vader and Son from 2012, this month.

Darth Vader, Sith Lord and leader of the Galactic Empire, struggles with the responsibilities of raising his daughter, Leia.  The future princess, who talks to friends via R2-D2’s hologram, grows from a sweet young girl hosting tea parties to a rebellious teenager learning to pilot a TIE fighter.
