Book Ramblings: The Strange Case of Origami Yoda

The Strange Case of Origami YodaThe Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tommy’s done his research on Origami Yoda. He’s pulled together stories about the paper sage from his friends and other students at McCallum Middle School. He still doesn’t know what to believe. Dwight, the guy who made the paper Jedi, is a weird loser that sits at Tommy’s lunch table. Origami Yoda’s first appearance is treated with scorn, but then the results start making everyone ask the paper guru for advice, everyone except Harvey. Are Origami Yoda’s answers to be trusted? Is Harvey right that all of it is a pathetic joke? Tommy’s got to look it all over and decide.

This is a quick, amusing read. Tommy faces the usual problems of middle school: friends, bullies and girls. Harvey adds skeptical comments to all of Tommy’s Yoda cases. Kellan draws in illustrations. A few of the stories included were recorded by Tommy and then transcribed. This book should appeal to fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
