Itandrsquo;s a Fortune Wookiee, and it seems to give advice thatandrsquo;s just as good as Yodaandrsquo;sandmdash;even if, in the hands of the girls, it seems too preoccupied with romance. In the meantime, Dwight is fitting in a little too well at Tippett. Has the unimaginable happened? Has Dwight become normal? Itandrsquo;s up to his old friends at McQuarrie to remind their kooky friend that itandrsquo;s in his weirdness that his greatness lies.

andquot;Tom Angleberger offers a hilarious third book in his best-selling series starring origami Star Wars characters.

But youand#39;ll likely have to pry it out of your young readerandrsquo;s hands first.andquot;

The third case file of the New York Times bestselling Origami Yoda series from Tom Angleberger
Is it possible to have a case file without Origami Yoda?
With Dwight suspended, McQuarrie Middle School is missing its most famous attendee: Origami Yoda. And no Yoda means no case file mystery to solve. But then something BIG happens. Something BIG and HAIRY. It's a Fortune Wookiee, a paper fortune teller in the form of Chewbacca. Sara brings it to school as a gift from Dwight, and it seems to give advice that's just as good as Yoda's. Mysterious it is
Tommy, Kellen, and Harvey are on the case. And when their classmates start having strange "Dwight sightings" (sightings of Dwight in which he is acting WAY too normal), the boys have TWO mysteries to solve. The closer they get, the more possible it seems that Origami Yoda will be back . . .
