The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger

Publisher:  Amulet Books
Pages:  141
Source:  Library
Genre:  Middle Grade Realistic Fiction/Humor

The setup of this book was fabulous.  It is told through the interview of students who have been helped by the advice of Origami Yoda.  It has comments by Tommy, and his friend Harvey who has never believed in Origami Yoda.

Tommy is trying to prove whether Origami Yoda is real or not.  Who is Origami Yoda you ask?  He is the origami finger puppet created and worn by the most  uncool kid of the school.  When Origami Yoda gives his first piece of advice and it turns out to be right on, everyone starts asking Origami Yoda for advice.  Tommy must figure out if he is real or not so that he doesn't make a fool of himself in front of a girl.  I believe not only will boys eat this book up, but girls will find it funny and enjoyable.
