Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stick figures to the dark side only lead! To doodle like a Jedi you must learn! With this companion to the blockbuster bestselling Origami Yoda series, beloved author Tom Angleberger — with the help of the kids from McQuarrie Middle School — presents young Padawans with dozens of activities from the Star Wars universe. Padawans can learn how to fold R2-D2 and C-3PO, draw Jabba, and even build a fully functioning ChapStick rocket! Other Force-mastering activities include: “Kellen's Guide to Cool Letters,” “Mike's Complete Rules and Tips for Pencil Pod-Racing,” “Rhondella's Tips for Photographing Origami,” and much more!

With Tom Angleberger's goofy sense of humor and accessible art style, Art2-D2's Guide to Folding and Doodling is sure to satisfy and inspire the millions of Origami Yoda and Star Wars fans. May the doodles be with you!

Includes 16-page color insert with 10 pages of colored pull-out origami paper; instructions to make Yoda, Darth, C-3PO, Admiral Ackbar, and R2-D2; a section on photographing your origami creations, and two Star Wars backdrops to photograph them against.

Review:

"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.

Review:

"Once again, Angleberger's 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.” Florida Times-Union

Review:

"The presentations offbeat attitude, ingenuity, and wit, many libraries will want to stock this high interest book..." Booklist

Review:

"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
