Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca, has written a new book entitled My Favorite Giant that deals with the issues of bullying. The book is geared toward children and offers scenarios and advice on how to deal with the subject. Lately bullying has become a fairly serious issue and many children struggle to deal with it on a daily basis. In My Favorite Giant, Peter Mayhew tells a story using himself as a character and his conversation with Katie Johnson. Like Peter Mayhew, Katie Johnson is also a real person. Her father was the founder of the 501st Legion, and Katie’s struggle with brain cancer started the R2-KT project. Though Katie passed away, the R2-KT project carries on, and with My Favorite Giant, she will now be able to inspire and help other kids in need. If you’d like to purchase the book, or would just like to find out more information, feel free to check out the My Favorite Giant website.
