I'm not a fan of any character-centric novels. So that's a no from me. A Jar Jar book for young kids (10 and under) is actually a perfect marriage. I look at Jar Jar like the Ewoks. I loved the Ewoks as a young kid, so if young kids like Jar Jar then I have no serious problem with him for that demographic. Although I've heard that Jar Jar is even split in that demographic.
