This is a book about one kid who is not ‘normal’. He carries an origami Yoda who gives out advise about all kinds of things. Lots of kids in the school come to Origami Yoda with their problems. In Darth Paper Strikes Back, Dwight (the wielder of Origami Yoda) is faced with a challenge. Harvey (the Yoda opposer) creates his own Darth Paper who also gives out advise. I strongly suggest you read this series. It is a great series. If you are a Star Wars fan I think you will like this series.

This book was different, in a good way. I am an origami fan so it seemed interesting because I've never heard of an origami yoda. Once I got into it, they starting talking about the 'force' and a whole bunch of different Star Wars stuff. Amazing!

Boys will like it, girls will like it, adults will like it, even educated fleas will like it. For a fun middle grade that dares to rise a little higher than the usual crop, place your bets on The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. Or, in the words of the great warrior himself, “Enjoy book, you soon will.”

I love this book.It is hilarious. A great book for star wars lovers. I really like this book.

Funny and well written. A Children's Librarian recommended it to me because I was doing an origami workshop. She said the book series is always checked out at her school library. A very good sign! I found while reading it I was chuckling to myself a lot. :)

Tommy comes right out with his dilemma on page one. “The big question: Is Origami Yoda real? . . . It’s REALLY important for me to figure out if he’s real. Because I’ve got to decide whether to take his advice or not, and if I make the wrong choice, I’m doomed!” It’s strange to think that Tommy would be this torn up over an origami finger puppet belonging to the school’s biggest dork. But then he starts recounting for us the wonders of Origami Yoda’s advice. It may not always be spot on, but it’s certainly heads and tales more intelligent than Dwight, the boy who created the puppet and who voices him (poorly). Example: How do you get out of a potentially embarrassing situation when you’re in the bathroom and you spill water on your pants so that it looks like you peed yourself? Origami Yoda says: “All of pants, you must wet.” See? Strangely good advice. Of course, then Tommy starts asking Origami about Sara, the girl he likes, and the answer he receives leaves him conflicted. Believe the talking folded paper or consider it a hoax and play it safe? The book is filled with little drawings and sidenotes as different classmates weigh in on the Origami Yoda conundrum.

This Book is about a sixth grade oddball named dwight who makes a paper version of yoda from star wars. This yoda can do some weird things. It can predict the future, or can it. Dwights freind Tommy writes storys about how Oragami yoda helps people. Each story has comments by Tommy , and Harvey- The non-beliver- who wants to destroy Yoda. In the end Tommy aks the most important question of all.

German book trailer for The Strange Case of Origami Yoda

Eigentlich ist Dwight ein totaler Loser. Seine Klassenkameraden finden ihn ziemlich seltsam und halten ihn für einen Spinner. Doch eines Tages ändert sich das. Dwight gibt plötzlich verblüffend gute Ratschläge mit einer Fingerpuppe aus Papier, die aussieht wie Yoda. Dieser Yoda sagt die Zukunft voraus, rettet vor üblen Peinlichkeiten und gibt die richtigen Tipps zum Umgang mit Mädchen. Auf einmal glauben manche in der Schule an Origami-Yoda, andere jedoch meinen, es sei nur ein Stück Papier. Bald ist klar: Wer die Puppe hat, hat die Macht. Und einer, Tommy nämlich, will die ganze Wahrheit herausfinden ...
