The Strange Case of Origami Yoda

If you missed Monday’s post you might want to check it out. We had quite a discussion about whether fictional characters are real. Which brings us to today’s book recommendation for Operation Story Share, a story that fits perfectly with our “real” debate—The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger.

This is how the story begins . . .

The big question: Is Origami Yoda real?

Well, of course he’s real. I mean, he’s a real finger puppet made out of a real piece of paper.

But I mean: Is he REAL? Does he really know things? Can he see the future? Does he use the Force?

Or is he just a hoax that fooled a whole bunch of us at McQuarrie Middle School?

See, Tommy has to know because he has to decide whether or not to take Yoda’s advice about something very important. Something about a GIRL.

So is Origami Yoda real? Ha! If you think I’m going to give away the whole story, you’d better think again. You’ll have to read it and decide for yourself. And as a bonus, there are directions in the back of the book for making your very own Origami Yoda.

The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger. You don’t want to miss this one. Or as Origami Yoda would say, “Miss this one, you must not!”

And I’m sure you won’t want to miss the sequel, either—Darth Paper Strikes Back.

    Flash, those books sound great! I still can not comment on anything except Phil’s color Nook. It won’t show any pictures from your blog, so we have to go back and forth. At least we can read the posts and comments.
