He's a dab hand in writing adventures concerning that criminal underbelly side of the Star Wars saga, and penned memorable exploits for the likes of Han and Chewbacca, as well as a certain crimson lightsaber wielding Sith Lord, so Joe Schreiber is more than a fine choice in handling the newly released Junior Novel adaptation of Solo: A Star Wars Story, out now in the UK from EGMONT. It's a fast paced and fun book for all ages let alone the junior age group, also featuring deleted scenes soon to be revealed in the film's home entertainment release.
Here's the release blurb:

Read along as Han encounters Chewbacca the Wookiee, smuggler Lando Calrissian and other heroes and villains. Author Joe Schreiber captures all the excitement and adventure of the hit film.
