Angleberger, T. (2010). The strange case of origami yoda. New York, NY: Abrams Books.
Origami Yoda is exactly what he sounds like. He is a paper folding meant to look like Yoda that is worn on Dwight’s finger. Dwight is a little weird, but the rest of the kids at their middle school don’t mind him. He offers Origami Yoda to give advice to those who need it. The book is a set of case files where all of the other students write their stories of how Origami Yoda has or hasn’t helped them out so that the main character, Tommy, can decide to listen to Origami Yoda about asking his crush to dance or not. In the end, Tommy follows Yoda’s advice and ends up having a great time at the school dance. I would definitely continue reading the rest of the series, this would be a fun set of stories to read as a class novel and have students make their own Yodas!
