THE STRANGE CASE OF ORIGAMI YODA by Tom Angleberger
This book is a casefile compiled by sixth grader, Tommy, as he struggles to figure out the truth: does Origami Yoda have magical powers? Dwight, who created Origami Yoda and wears him on his finger, is the weirdest kid in school, and it seems like he never does anything right. So how is it possible that when Dwight is speaking as Origami Yoda, he gives the best possible advice and even sees into the future? It is vitally important to determine whether or not Origami Yoda is really magic or just a hoax, because Tommy needs to decide whether to take Origami Yoda’s latest advice in a matter of life-changing proportion.
This book is incredibly funny and great for upper elementary and middle school students; it is especially popular among boys. It includes instructions for creating your own personal Origami Yoda (magic powers not included).
