Overview


  Dark times have fallen on McQuarrie Middle School. Dwight’s back—and not a moment too soon, as the gang faces the FunTime Menace: a new educational program designed to raise students’ standardized test scores. Instead, it’s driving everyone crazy with its obnoxious videos of Professor FunTime and his insidious singing calculator! When Principal Rabbski cancels the students’ field trip—along with art, music, and LEGO classes—to make time for FunTime, the students turn to Origami Yoda for help. But some crises are too big for Origami Yoda to handle alone: Form a Rebel Alliance the students must. United, can they defeat the FunTime Menace and cope with a surprise attack from Jabba the Puppett?
With this latest episode in the explosively popular Origami Yoda series, Tom Angleberger proves once again that he “has his finger puppet squarely on the erratic pulse of middle-school life” (Washington Post). 
 
 
Praise  for The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett
"Chock-full of customarily quirky fun.”
--Kirkus Reviews

"Fans of the series will relish the side drawings’ goofy humor, the new puppets to make, and the cliff-hanger promising more to come."
--School Library Journal

"Angleberger delivers another clever, funny crowd-pleaser. The message isn’t bad either: uniting for the greater good and standing up for one’s beliefs. Fans of the series, or of Star Wars, will hit warp speeds to grab a copy of this one.”
--Booklist

Editorial Reviews

All is not well at McQuarrie Middle School. To raise the school's standardized test results, Principal Rabbski has replaced stimulating art, music, and LEGO classes with FunTime, an insufferable series of boring videos. As always in times of trauma, the students turn to Origami Yoda for instruction, but in this case, one wise finger puppet cannot solve everything. An entertaining (and surprisingly relevant) addition to a pleasing series.

This book is the best one so far! Have the book at home but still have it on the nook. The fact that everybody has origami characters is pretty weird though. Can not wajt for the next book!

I love this siries and recomend it to people who like star wars and/or origami and/or hate testing/test prep.

I have read the first three books in this series and have ordered the 4th one.  These are fun, creative stories that do not insult the intelligence of their intended audience. I picked up the first one and got hooked. I have also purchased the Art 2-D2 book of folding and doodling. This one is not part of the continuing story but a stand alone book of how to do origami and doodles seen in the other books. Highly recommend these books and the author's website.

My son loves this series, not to mention the origami you can make from the directions. He laughs as he reads. It's really nice to see Star Wars in this light. It's no wonder Star Wars is forever...

I love this series and was thrilled when I saw Barnes and Noble was doing an exclusive book this summer.  I was just looking to see when the next book would be released when I saw that no one had put up a review.  I think this great book needs a review so kids know it's worth getting this new book.  If you have kids who love Star Wars or the other books in this series be sure to buy this book.
