Overview

The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee (Origami Yoda Series #3) by Tom Angleberger


With Dwight attending Tippett Academy this semester, the kids of McQuarrie Middle School are on their own—no Origami Yoda to give advice and help them navigate the treacherous waters of middle school. Then Sara gets a gift she says is from Dwight—a paper fortune-teller in the form of Chewbacca. It’s a Fortune Wookiee, and it seems to give advice that’s just as good as Yoda’s—even if, in the hands of the girls, it seems too preoccupied with romance. In the meantime, Dwight is fitting in a little too well at Tippett. Has the unimaginable happened? Has Dwight become normal? It’s up to his old friends at McQuarrie to remind their kooky friend that it’s in his weirdness that his greatness lies.

This is the third case file in the blockbuster bestselling Origami Yoda series, written by Tom Angleberger, author of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi: Beware the Power of the Dark Side, showcasing his proven knack for authentically capturing the  intrigues, fads, and dramas of middle school in “a satisfying tale of friendship and just resistance to authority” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

Praise for The Secret of the Fortune Wookieehas crafted a worthy follow-up to his break
STARRED REVIEW
"Angleberger’s third in the series continues the fun. A chorus of spot-on middle school voices and plenty of laughs are wrapped around this tale of friendship and seasoned with Star Wars references."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Tom Angleberger offers a hilarious third book in his best-selling series starring origami Star Wars characters. Angleberger’s grasp of middle-school emotions, humor and behavior is spot-on, and parents who want to get a sense of what it’s like be a preteen these days might consider reading this book. But you'll likely have to pry it out of your young reader’s hands first."

My sons and I love the Origami Yoda series, and book #3 was as fresh as the first two. Sarah (Tommy's girlfriend) is behind the Fortune Wookiee (a cootie catcher) and his origami translator, Han Foldo, leading to an interesting twist at the end. These characters are so well-drawn and realistic. There's the hilariously rude Harvey, the lovelorn Kellen, the practical and compassionate Sarah, the wise but out-there Dwight, and the everyman Tommy. My older sons, now 12 and 10, have been reading the books as they come out, and now my 7-year-old is a huge fan, too. We're all re-reading Origami Yoda to bring him up to speed, and speculating about book #4.

This a great book, and it's a PagePerfectNOOKBook, so there's more features, so that makes it even better. But, there's a few glitches where it won't view the page. Other than that, this is a great book that Star Wars and Origami folders (and fortune tellers) will all enjoy.

I purchased this for my daughter on her nook color but she wasn't able to view many of the pages. Though she loves the series and when she finally gets a chance to read it I'm sure she will have a great review for it! Side note: i informed barnes and nobles of the issue and they were very helpful but i still don't know if the issue has been corrected yet so any prospective buyers for the nook may want to check with customer service first.
