“Is Origami Yoda part of the Force? Or just a wad of paper stuck on the end of Dwight's finger? Dwight, who appears to be the biggest loser at McQuarrie Middle School, has kids lining up to ask for his advice. Surprisingly, the advice actually works. This book is funny and clever, with amusing illustrations and directions for folding your own Origami Yoda. May the Force be with you!”
— Karen Briggs, Great Northern Books and Hobbies, Oscoda, MI
Not so long ago, in a middle school not so far away, a sixth grader named Dwight folded an origami finger puppet of Yoda. For class oddball Dwight, this wasn't weird. It was typical Dwight behavior. But what "is" weird is that Origami Yoda is uncannily wise and prescient. He can predict the date of a pop quiz, guess who stole the classroom Shakespeare bust, and save a classmate from popularity-crushing embarrassment with some well-timed advice. Dwight's classmate Tommy wonders how Yoda can be so smart when Dwight himself is so clueless. With contributions from his puzzled classmates, Tommy assembles this first case file in the blockbuster bestselling Origami Yoda series, hailed by "School Library Journal "as "honest, funny, and immensely entertaining.
