Who needs a crystal ball? Origami Yoda is way cooler!

The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger

There’s no doubt that Dwight is the oddest kid in sixth grade. He probably is the oddest kid in the whole school. He does the weirdest things. About the only thing that he is good at is making origami. One day he made a really cool piece of origami. It looked a lot like Yoda! Then he had to go and make it all weird by wearing it on his hand and insisting that people ask Origami Yoda questions. The advice Origami Yoda gives, though, is almost always great. Does Origami Yoda have some sort of magical powers?

In hopes of figuring out the answer to that question, Tommy, another six grade student, decides to interview people who have interacted with Origami Yoda. His friends Harvey and Kellen add their views (in words and pictures respectively) to the casebook. Will the answer be found? Origami Yoda says, “Read must you. Find out you will.”


This is a funny story! The author captures six graders personalities well. The illustrations are fun and fit the story. Plus, you can learn how to make your own Origami Yoda.


Nothing. It was a great, fun read.
