Praise for Art2-D2's Guide to Folding and Doodling
"Once again, Anglebergers humor, which presents itself in the text through characters from the series, in both human and origami form, connects with middle-grade readers. 'Art2' and the other 'Origami Yoda' books are the ultimate example of the by-a-fan/for-the-fans format, which succeeds if executed properly. This did he.”
"Excellent activity-book offshoot of Anglebergers bestselling Origami Yoda series The banter and tongue-and-cheek humor of the previous books is present, along with encouragement."
"The presentations offbeat attitude, ingenuity, and wit, many libraries will want to stock this high interest book..."
"Fans (and nonfans, if there are any) of the Origami Yoda” series (Abrams) and website will find new opportunities aplenty for foolery in this spinoff compendium of progressively challenging hands-on instructions for drawing, folding, and goofing around with (mostly) Star Wars characters."
—School Library Journal
"In this excellent activity-book offshoot of Angleberger's bestselling Origami Yoda series, Kellen, Tommy, and other kids from McQuarrie Middle School guide readers through drawing and folding origami Star Wars characters like Origami Yoda, Fortune Wookiee, and Kirigami General Grievous. Several color origami pages are bound into the book ('Do you know how much it cost to have them printed?' writes Kellen. 'A lot!!!!!'), and additional activities include writing dramatic lettering and creating prints using ink and Silly Putty. The banter and tongue-and-cheek humor of the previous books is present, along with encouragement: 'You can make your origami puppets fight.... Use the force... of your thumb!' Ages 8 — 12. Agent: Caryn Wiseman, Andrea Brown Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
