Description



About the Book



In this funny, uncannily wise portrait of the dynamics of a sixth-grade class and of the greatness that sometimes comes in unlikely packages, Dwight, a loser, talks to his classmates via an origami finger puppet of Yoda.



Book Synopsis



Strange things are happening at McQuarrie Middle School in the opener to the New York Times bestselling series from Tom Angleberger!

It takes the wisdom of Yoda to survive the sixth grade.

Meet Dwight, a sixth-grade oddball. Dwight does a lot of weird things, like wearing the same T-shirt for a month or telling people to call him "Captain Dwight." But Dwight does one cool thing. He makes origami. One day he makes an origami finger puppet of Yoda. And that's when things get mysterious. Origami Yoda can predict the future and suggest the best way to deal with a tricky situation. His advice actually works, and soon most of the sixth grade is lining up with questions.

Dwight's friend Tommy wants to know how Origami Yoda can be so smart when Dwight is so clueless. Is Yoda tapping into the Force?

This is Tommy's case file of his investigation into "The Strange Case of Origami Yoda."

Includes instructions for folding your own Origami Yoda.



Review Quotes



"A skewed amalgam of Wayside Stories and Wimpy Kid that is sure to please fans of both."-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Angleberger's rendering of such a middle-grade cultural obsession is not only spot-on but also reveals a few resonant surprises hidden in the folds."-- "Booklist"

"For a fun middle grade that dares to rise a little higher than the usual crop, place your bets on The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. Or, in the words of the great warrior himself, 'Enjoy book, you soon will.'"-- "Elizabeth Bird, Fuse #8"
