Origami Yoda #1: The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger (Hardback)
IT TAKES THE WISDOM OF YODA TO SURVIVE THE SIXTH GRADE
Meet Dwight, a sixth-grade oddball. Dwight does a lot of weird things, like wearing the same T-shirt for a month or telling people to call him "Captain Dwight." This is embarrassing, particularly for Tommy, who sits with him at lunch every day.
But Dwight does one cool thing. He makes origami. One day he makes an origami finger puppet of Yoda. And that's when things get mysterious. Origami Yoda can predict the future and suggest the best way to deal with a tricky situation. His advice actually works, and soon most of the sixth grade is lining up with questions.
Tommy wants to know how Origami Yoda can be so smart when Dwight himself is so clueless. Is Yoda tapping into the Force? It's crucial that Tommy figure out the mystery before he takes Yoda's advice about something VERY IMPORTANT that has to do with a girl.
This is Tommy's case file of his investigation into "The Strange Case of Origami Yoda."

"There's always that one weird kid in school who has no idea that they're weird; all of the other kids can tell them that they're weird, but they just go on being weird, and Tom Angleberger really does a fantastic job of showing how there needs to be a weird kid in every school to shake things up and make everyone else question their own place in the food chain. This book was a breath of weird, fresh air, and I really enjoyed the multiple narratives and the way that the characters grew to understand themselves and each other through the proclamations of Origami Yoda. I'd take his advice any day."
"A friend recommended this book to me and this ended up being one of my favorite books. Origami Yoda is about a sixth grade class. There is a really strange boy named Dwight who has an Origami Yoda, and he wears it on his finger. In this book Origami Yoda spreads his wisdom to everyone who wants his help. But the big question is: is Origami Yoda real or is it just Dwight trying to play a prank. Tommy and his friends Kellen, and Harvey need to find out. If they don’t something very bad could happen to Tommy ( read it and you’ll find out ). I think that Tom Angleberger did a fabulous job and has a great imagination. I would give this book five stars because it had a good plot, and was very funny. If you like funny books, this is a good book for you. This is my favorite book that I have read this quarter. Don’t be a holdout and join the good side of the Force!"
