The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger

Origami Yoda Are you looking for a good book to read now you’ve finished The Diary of a Wimpy Kid?  Look no further, Origami Yoda is here!  Origami Yoda is a finger puppet made by this really weird middle schooler named Dwight.  Dwight is the kind of nerd who wears the same t-shirt all month, wipes up spills in the cafeteria by scooting across the floor on his stomach, or only answers “purple” when you ask him a question.  The thing is Dwight’s paper puppet can predict the future and suggest the best way to handle a tricky situation.  There’s no way Dwight is that smart.  So is Origami Yoda magic?  The students of McQuarrie Middle School want to know so they start a case file to discover the truth.  Check out their stories and related cartoons by reading The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger.
