Darth Paper Strikes Back: An Origami Yoda Book by Tom Angleberger - donkeytime.org book reviewDarth Paper Strikes Back was extraordinarily entertaining. Granted, I went into it without much as far as expectations go. I was unsure how much I was going to enjoy a young adult novel, especially a sequel to another one I had never read. But, lo and behold, it was cute and I found myself reminiscing about my middle school years. Not that I had a lot of Star Wars stuff or anything. But in all honesty, the book deals more with interpersonal relations between students than with anything Lucasfilm-ish. As we see the world through the eyes of the pre-teens, we get the opportunity to relive the drama of junior high.
Darth Paper Strikes Back
If you have young Star Wars fans in your house, and they haven't read Tom Angelberger's pair of origami-novel love letters to the franchise, I highly recommend you pick them both up now. And if you don't have young Star Wars fans, but you are yourself perhaps a less-young Star Wars fan, you'll enjoy them yourself. Darth Paper Strikes Back: An Origami Yoda Book came out last August, and I've been quite remiss in not writing about it before now—but not for lack of love of them both. In fact, everybody I've seen since then who has heard me talk glowingly about Dwight, Tommy, and their mystery-solving friends will tell you how much I adore these books. He's a little weird.
Share on:. Harvey has made himself a Darth Vader Darth Paper and it is, of course, turning him to the dark side! I hadn't read the original story to begin with, so I must admit that there were times when I wondered quite what was going on! It seems that one of the boys at school, Dwight, made an Origami Yoda finger puppet and this puppet gave his classmates amazing advice, advice that helped them in their school relationships and resolved various problems. Origami Yoda was, undoubtedly, using the force! In this story Dwight is facing expulsion, and so Origami Yoda asks Dwight's friends to try to help. They put together a case file showing all the good Dwight and Yoda!
Students turn for counsel to Origami Yoda, a finger puppet as seemingly wise as his “Star Wars” namesake. In this imaginative sequel to “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda,” the folded Jedi master must contend with an increasingly powerful dark side. Know-it-all Harvey and his puppet.
