Origami Yoda is a wad of paper Dwight, the weird kid who made Origami Yoda, never removes from his finger. Now, Tommy and his friends are trying to figure out if Origami Yoda is able to tell the future and use “the force”. The strange case of Origami Yoda is a bunch of small stories that usually end with two comments: one from Tommy, who doesn’t know if Origami Yoda is real, and another one from his “friend” Harvey, who just thinks Origami Yoda is a “dumb” wad of paper.
The main character’s name is Tommy because this book is a real life experience for Tom Angleberger (the author). Anyway, this story is a great one because I liked the Star Wars movies, but if you never saw the Star Wars movies it is still a great book because it doesn’t have a lot to do with Star Wars, so you won’t be left clueless on the first story in the book!
