Hi everyone! I am back from New Mexico! I was planning on telling everyone about my trip in a post I wanted to publish yesterday, but our computer crashed and I couldn’t put the pictures in the post. My mom let me use her laptop to try to catch up on emails and posts I hope I can tell you about our trip on Wednesday.
I don’t have a regular review for today, instead I have a cool book to tell you about. The book is released today and I have been waiting for its release! Some of you may know that I am a huge fan of Star Wars and I am also very fond of origami, so this book is one I am very excited about.

I got a promotional book from Scholastic with only a portion of the pop-ups in it, but I was very impressed with how the pop-ups were designed! It seems more like origami than pop-ups. It’s like a pop-up book for older kids or adults. I asked my parents to order me the whole book (I hope they get it for me). Along with the pop-ups there is text that tell about all the characters/places/things that are in the pop-up. A lot of it is information Star Wars fans may already know, but I still enjoyed reading the parts in the promotional book. I opened and closed the book a bunch to make sure the pop-ups didn’t stop working or to see if they bent the wrong way, but they kept working. I think any kid/adult that is a fan of Star Wars would like this.
Check this out!
Did I mention Darth Vader’s lightsaber actually lights up too?!? Pretty cool. I am not giving the book a bookworm rating because I didn’t read the completed version. I’ll let you know what I think the rating is when I get the completed book (please Mom and Dad)
If we don’t get our computer back tomorrow to get the pictures of our vacation to post about on Wednesday, I will still post a book review
