Overview


At McQuarrie Middle School, the war against the FunTime Menace—aka test prep—wages on. Our heroes have one battle under their belts, and they’ve even found a surprising ally in Jabba the Puppett. But to defeat the Dark Standardized Testing Forces they’re going to need an even bigger, even more surprising ally: Principal Rabbski. But with great forces—aka the school board—pushing her from above, will the gang’s former enemy don a finger puppet and join the Rebellion—or will her transformation to Empress Rabbski, Dark Lord of the Sith, be complete?
 
With this timely episode in the blockbuster Origami Yoda series, Tom Angleberger, author of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi: Beware the Power of the Dark Side, demonstrates once again that his “grasp of middle-school emotions, and behavior is spot-on” (Scripps Howard News Service).

Praise for Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue!
"Fans will devour this satisfying and nicely realistic conclusion to the story set up in the previous volume. Characters grow, and non–Star Wars pop-culture references seep in. Readers new to the series are advised to go back to the beginning; they won’t regret it."
--Kirkus Reviews

"These books are more popular than a working droid on Tatooine. Expect the usual army of young Jedis to come out swinging for a copy."
--Booklist
 

Editorial Reviews

The kids at McQuarrie Middle School continue their quirky battle against the ultimate FunTime Menace: test prep. In fact, in their efforts to defeat the Dark Standardized Testing Forces, they hope to draft a most unlikely ally: Principal Rabbski. Tom Angleberger's delightfully imaginative Origami Yoda series continues to brighten the days of youngsters who quake at the words "multiple choice."

Is Principal Rabbski the evil Empress of FunTime or the Origami Rebel Alliance's only hope? Picking up where The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppet (2013) left off, the seventh graders of McQuarrie Middle School and their individual, ever-present origami Star Wars character puppets continue their fight with Principal Rabbski to restore their fun (and educational) elective classes and themselves of the soul-crushingly boring standardized test prep classes created by FunTime. Principal Rabbski agreed (when threatened with purposeful test-flunking) to try to do something about the embarrassing rapping-calculator videos and repetitive worksheets of FunTime, but she's done nothing for weeks. Now, it seems one of the rebels has given Principal Rabbski the latest case file, covered with printed labels—ostensibly notes from Princess Labelmaker— telling her she is their "only hope." Meanwhile, the Origami Rebel Alliance continues to try to learn and help one another. They play crab soccer, put on their lunchtime musical and prove to Mike's mother Star Wars is not evil—but will the coming of Xtreme.Funâ„¢ seal their doom? Fans will devour this satisfying and nicely realistic conclusion to the story set up in the previous volume. Characters grow, and non–Star Wars pop-culture references seep in. Readers new to the series are advised to go back to the beginning; they won't regret it. Cheers of "STOOKY!" will rise when Origami Yoda answers "The End?" with "Way No!" (Graphic fiction hybrid. 9-12)

For those who haven't read it, Princess Lablemaker is the best one in the series yet! But who is she? Why did she steal the case file? Why is she betraying the rebellion? First hint: who else would think a lablemaker is aweome? Who else will communicate through a puppet? And finally, who else's puppet is in the rebellion, but not itself? An absolute stookyful must- read!
