The strange case of Origami Yoda
There are currently 2 available
Where To Find It
Call number: Y Fiction / Angleberger, Tom
Available Copies: Downtown Youth, West Youth
Sixth-grader Tommy and his friends describe their interactions with a paper finger puppet of Yoda, worn by their weird classmate Dwight, as they try to figure out whether or not the puppet can really predict the future. Includes instructions for making Origami Yoda.
Angleberger genuinely captures the tone of a concerned and inquisitive sixth grader. Short chapters/case reports will capture even those with short attention spans, and jokes in the text and funny doodle illustrations in the margins make for a laugh a page. Pages are printed to look distressed and dogeared, which lend to the feeling that the entire tome is put together and studied by a middle schooler. Readers will relate to the problems that students share with Origami Yoda, and may even benefit from the paper puppet's advice.
Mid-to-late elementary students will be best suited for this clever book, but even middle schoolers will not be able to resist the pull of Origami Yoda.
