Synopses & Reviews
At McQuarrie Middle School, the war against the FunTime Menace — aka test prep — wages on. Our heroes have one battle under their belts, and they’ve even found a surprising ally in Jabba the Puppett. But to defeat the Dark Standardized Testing Forces they’re going to need an even bigger, even more surprising ally: Principal Rabbski. But with great forces — aka the school board — pushing her from above, will the gang’s former enemy don a finger puppet and join the Rebellion — or will her transformation to Empress Rabbski, Dark Lord of the Sith, be complete?
With this timely episode in the blockbuster Origami Yoda series, Tom Angleberger demonstrates once again that his “grasp of middle-school emotions, humor and behavior is spot-on” (Scripps Howard News Service).
"Fans will devour this satisfying and nicely realistic conclusion to the story set up in the previous volume. Characters grow, and non–Star Wars pop-culture references seep in. Readers new to the series are advised to go back to the beginning; they won’t regret it." Kirkus Reviews
"These books are more popular than a working droid on Tatooine. Expect the usual army of young Jedis to come out swinging for a copy." Booklist
