The hilarious, clever, and much-anticipatedand#160;follow-up to the breakout hit, The Strange Case ofand#160;Origami Yoda!

It is a dark time at Ralph McQuarrie Middle School. After suffering several Origami Yodaandndash;related humiliations, Harvey manages to get Dwight suspended from school for being a andldquo;troublemaker.andrdquo; Origami Yoda pleads with Tommy and Kellen to save Dwight by making a new case fileandmdash;one that will show how Dwightandrsquo;s presence benefits McQuarrie. With the help of their friends, Tommy and Kellen record cases such as andldquo;Origami Yoda and the Pre-eaten Wiener,andrdquo; andldquo;Origami Yoda and the Exploding Pizza Bagels,andrdquo; and andldquo;Origami Yoda and Wonderland: The Musical.andrdquo; But Harvey and his Darth Paper puppet have a secret plan that could make Dwightandrsquo;s suspension permanent . . .

With his proven knack for humorously exploring the intrigues, fads, and dramas of middle school, Tom Angleberger has crafted a worthy sequel to his breakout bestseller.

Praise for Darth Paperand#160;Strikes Back

STARREDand#160;REIVEW
andldquo;Anglebergerandrsquo;s just-as-funny follow-up to The Strange Case of Origami Yodaand#160;delves deeper into the mystery of the helpful paper Yoda in a satisfying tale of friendship and just resistance to authority.Pitch-perfect middle-school milieu and enough Star Wars references (and laughs) to satisfy fans and win new ones.andrdquo;
andmdash;Kirkus Reviews, starred review
and#160;
andldquo;In this imaginative sequelandhellip;author Tom Angleberger has his finger puppet squarely on the erratic pulse of middle-school life, with its shifting allegiances, squeals, moans and misgivings.andrdquo;
andmdash;Washington Post and#160;
and#160;
andldquo;As with this storyandrsquo;s predecessor, the well-observed middle-school dynamics (and Anglebergerandrsquo;s sharp sense of humor) are greatly amplified by the book's design, which includes faux wrinkled pages, abundant doodles, and other scrawled marginalia. It's a natural step up from the Wimpy Kid series, with more text and narrative complexity, but just as much on-target humor and all-around fun.andrdquo; andmdash;Publishers Weekly and#160; and#160; andldquo;This book is honest, funny, and immensely entertaining. The illustrations and design will engage readers. Based on the positive reception Origami Yoda has received, kids will be clamoring for this sequel. They wonandrsquo;t be disappointed.andrdquo; and#160; andmdash;School Library Journal
and#160;and#160;
andldquo;The Force is with Tom Angleberger in this sequel to his funny and clever novel/comics hybrid, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. A sequel to equal the funny and clever novel/comics debut of the Origami Yoda, as Dwightandrsquo;s friends try to save him from reform school.
andmdash;Shelf Awareness and#160;
and#160;

andldquo;With the same deft touch that made The Strange Case of Origami Yoda a pleasure, Angleberger takes readers through the ups and downs of adolescence.andrdquo; and#160; andmdash;Portland Book Review and#160;

and#160;
andldquo;Darth Paper offers further proof that Angleberger really understands middle-schoolers and the daily dramas that engulf them, while still finding the humor inherent in their situations. and#160;

Review:

"Tommy, Dwight, and the rest of their friends from The Strange Case of Origami Yoda are back, and so is Dwight's wise, eponymous finger puppet, Origami Yoda, who has also transitioned to seventh grade. But Dwight's (and Origami Yoda's) days are numbered, as complaints about Dwight's behavior may lead to his being sent to a school for troubled youth. Following the format of the first book, Tommy and his friends compile episodic accounts that attest to Dwight/Origami Yoda's wisdom in dealing with problems that range from a classmate with terrible body odor to getting out of selling collectible popcorn tins for a school fundraiser. But antagonistic classmate Harvey, who has taken to wearing a Darth Paper finger puppet, is slowly turning the class toward the Dark Side. As with this story's predecessor, the well-observed middle-school dynamics (and Angleberger's sharp sense of humor) are greatly amplified by the book's design, which includes faux wrinkled pages, abundant doodles, and other scrawled marginalia. It's a natural step up from the Wimpy Kid series, with more text and narrative complexity, but just as much on-target humor and all-around fun. Ages 8 — 12. (Aug.)"

Synopsis:

Not so long ago, in a middle school not so far away, a sixth grader named Dwight folded an origami finger puppet of Yoda. For class oddball Dwight, this wasnandrsquo;t weird. It was typical Dwight behavior. But what is weird is that Origami Yoda is uncannily wise and prescient. He can predict the date of a pop quiz, guess who stole the classroom Shakespeare bust, and save a classmate from popularity-crushing embarrassment with some well-timed advice. Dwightandrsquo;s classmate Tommy wonders how Yoda can be so smart when Dwight himself is so clueless. With contributions from his puzzled classmates, Tommy assembles this first case file in the blockbuster bestselling Origami Yoda series, hailed by School Library Journal as andldquo;honest, funny, and immensely entertaining.andrdquo;

Synopsis:

The final Origami Yoda case file from the kids at McQuarrie Middle School!

 

After successfully fighting to save their field trip in Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue!, Tommy and the gang prepare for a well-earned day of fun and adventure in Washington, DC . . . but of course it won’t be that easy! This trip to the nation's capital will be full of shifting alliances and betrayals, carsickness and sugar rushes. Trouble starts even before the buses leave school, when Principal Rabbski decrees the field trip an “origami-free zone.” Dwight secretly folds a Yoda from a Fruit Roll-Up, but will Fruitigami Yoda be a match for Harvey's sour, hate-filled pickle of darkness? Astronaut ice cream, a supersonic plane, a Johnny Appleseed sighting, and a near arrest—are just some of the clues in the sweetest, stookiest, biggest, craziest Origami Yoda case file yet.
