    Great Book!!!

    Do you like Star Wars? Is one of your favorite characters from the series Yoda? Have you ever wondered does "the force" really exist? If you answered yes to any of these questions then strap yourself in and get ready to go to a galaxy far, far away? Well, actually not that far away and I guess it's not really another galaxy either. I guess I got a little carried away with all the Star Wars stuff. Anywho, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger is a quick read that will have you laughing out loud as you enjoy this tale of a middle school boy named Tommy who is trying to figure out if an origami puppet is really able to give sound advice. At the end of the book, there is even a diagram that shows how to create your own origami Yoda puppet. So grab your lightsaber (it will help you if you decide to read in the dark) and let the force be with you, young Jedi. Happy Reading!

    Too Funny!

    This is a very cute, entertaining story. I think Mr. Angleberger has been spying on my middle school students because he totally "gets" the middle school mentality! The book is pure fun. Students that enjoy the Diary of the Wimpy Kid will most likely love this as well since it is done in the same light-hearted style.

    Good book for reluctant readers

    While walking through the bookstore my son spotted this book. He picked it up and started to read it immediately. Needless to say we left the bookstore with The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. My son was so entranced with this book he wanted to read it whenever he could. For some kids this is the norm. For my son, it's not. He is a reluctant reader. I'm forever on the hunt for books that I think he would like. This book was a success.
    The Strange Case of Origami Yoda is about a boy, Dwight who makes himself an Origami Yoda. Dwight brings his paper masterpiece to school and places it on his finger and starts talking in a strange voice. Well technically it's Dwight but the strange voice is Yoda's. Yoda starts to distribute advice to fellow students. When some of the advice Yoda dishes out works, more of his classmates seek out his help. This book is in the form of case files compiled by two of Dwight's classmates. Tommy thinks there is a distinct possibility that Origami Yoda can be real while Harvey believes it's all a bunch of hooey. The case files they put together are the stories and testimonies of Dwight's classmates.
    As I mentioned my son loves this book. I borrowed this book after he was finished reading so I could see for myself what was so great about this book. This book is funny. At times laugh out loud funny. Tom Angleberger definitely has a sense of humor and it shows through out this book. It also goes a bit deeper then humor. Dwight is an odd kid. He steps to the beat of his own drum. For that reason he gets picked on. Dwight gives some of the mean kids a taste of their own medicine by getting them back. Not necessarily by picking a fight but by using his head. This book encompasses themes such as being yourself, believing in magic, and peer pressure.
    I really enjoyed this book. If you know or have a reluctant reader you might want to give this book a try. It's a fun read. Also in the back Tom Angleberger includes instructions on how to make your own Origami Yoda. My son and I both tried it. I can honestly say, origami is not my thing. However I did have fun trying to make my own.

    Amazing book!

    Even though im not a star wars fan the book is so awesome! The chapters are short and you can get the pictures in your head really easily. It has nothing to do with star wars except yoda. It first i thought it was gonna be all nerdy cuz thats what i think of star wars but it turns out to be an amazing book! Five stars!
