Overview


The final Origami Yoda case file from the kids at McQuarrie Middle School!
 
After successfully fighting to save their field trip in Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue!, Tommy and the gang prepare for a well-earned day of fun and adventure in Washington, DC . . . but of course it won’t be that easy! This trip to the nation's capital will be full of shifting alliances and betrayals, carsickness and sugar rushes. Trouble starts even before the buses leave school, when Principal Rabbski decrees the field trip an “origami-free zone.” Dwight secretly folds a Yoda from a Fruit Roll-Up, but will Fruitigami Yoda be a match for Harvey's sour, hate-filled pickle of darkness? Astronaut ice cream, a supersonic plane, a Johnny Appleseed sighting, and a near arrest—are just some of the clues in the sweetest, stookiest, biggest, craziest Origami Yoda case file yet.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The gang at McQuarrie Middle School are about take their final class trip and it should be exciting. In fact, we're not at all certain that either they or our national's capital are adequately prepared for all the adventures, craziness, mishaps, and Origami Yoda fun that lay ahead! An entertaining series capper. What's next? (P.S. This Barnes & Noble exclusive edition contains free trading cards!)

"...Angleberger’s characteristic humor remains in abundant supply..."
Kirkus Reviews
2014-08-12
A daylong field trip without origami? Nostrul! Er, awful!Tommy and his fellow seventh-grade Star Wars (and origami) fanatics are ready to go on the field trip they worked so hard to get reinstated in Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue (2014), but despite her softened stance, Principal Rabbski imposes a rule banning origami on the trip. Tommy and company open a new case file to chronicle how (or if) they will survive the trip. The students take turns narrating, recording the mistakes, the misunderstandings, the secret cellphones and secret origami…thankfully Dwight, customary custodian of Origami Yoda, brought plenty of lime fruit roll-ups to create Fruitigami Yoda. However, disbeliever Harvey has smuggled his evil origami Emperor Pickletine (with real pickle head) on the trip, and he's Tommy's bus buddy. Will Harvey drive him crazy? Will Tommy get to kiss Sara? Will Fruitigami Yoda be as helpful as his origami incarnation? And what of those standardized tests the students fought so hard against? The final Origami Yoda case file has all the answers! Angleberger closes his six-plus-volume (there is a companion origami manual with stories) series of doodle-filled Star Wars paeans with an enjoyable, funny and realistic denouement that nicely wraps up most of the series storylines. Age-appropriate boy-girl relationships add to the authenticity of the characters, who will soon be eighth graders. One last time: "stooky!" (Er, "fantastic!") (Graphic/fiction hybrid. 9-12)

    This was a great final installment in the Origami Yoda series, e

    This was a great final installment in the Origami Yoda series, even if it made me sad to see it end. Mr. Angleberger has written a wonderful, funny, and altogether memorable series about a bunch of kids and their origami Star Wars guys and all the wisdom their origami creations give them. I like how the kids in this book go to Washington DC, and also how they creatively break the NO ORIGAMI! rule, while not breaking it. For a Star Wars geek who does origami in his spare time, this series is the jackpot for me! Tommy is a great main character. I love how he handles situations. All the kids in the book seem very realistic to me. This was a great ending to an AWESOME series!

    To thee, I give a 21-fold salute!
