The Strange Case of Origami Yoda cover

Tommy and his classmates narrate this middle grade mystery, each recounting an episode in which they received wise advice from a finger puppet of Yoda, perpetually worn on the finger of their classmate, Dwight, a loser who can't get anything right. Is this puppet really Yoda? Or is Dwight a bit more together than he seems?

A skewed amalgam of Wayside Stories and Wimpy Kid that is sure to please fans of both. * Kirkus Reviews *
For a fun middle grade that dares to rise a little higher than the usual crop, place your bets on The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. Or, in the words of the great warrior himself, 'Enjoy book, you soon will.' * Elizabeth Bird, Fuse #8 *
Angleberger’s rendering of such a middle-grade cultural obsession is not only spot-on but also reveals a few resonant surprises hidden in the folds. * Booklist *
