Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

“Captain” Dwight and Origami Yoda return to McQuarrie Middle School just in time to wage battle against a powerful new enemy in Angleberger’s latest installment of this popular series. After a poor showing on the state standardized tests, McQuarrie students learn that their favorite classes—art, choir, sports, LEGOs—are being replaced by FunTime, a learning enhancement program that proves to be anything but fun. With Origami Yoda at the helm, an Origami Alliance forms to launch a rebellion against FunTime in order to save the school and its students from the Dark Side. Angleberger delivers another clever, funny crowd-pleaser in a diary-style case file packed with doodles and the voices of key participants in the rebellion. The message isn’t bad either: uniting for the greater good and standing up for one’s beliefs. Fans of the series, or of Star Wars, will hit warp speeds to grab a copy of this one. Grades 3-6. --Julia Smith

They are fun and funny.

Jabba the puppet is the fifth book in the Origami Yoda series, and it's the best one so far.

My nine year old son is not much of a reader a lot of the time, but he has devoured every book in the origami Yoda series. We pre-ordered this one and it was delivered some time when I was at work. By the time I came home in hue he evening, my son was half way through. This series is clever, delightful, and compassionate. I wish there were more books like this for kids of all ages.

I bought this book for my son who absolutely loves origami and Star Wars. This book is full of humorous approaches to origami projects featuring the Star Wars theme. After reading this, you'll never fear Jabba again. My son will sit down for hours reading through the book and creating the many origami projects. He and his friend love working on them together.
A very entertaining book for the creative Star Wars fan of any age!

Silly, but not overly so. Any Star Wars fan will really like this parody series, which captures many of the "inside jokes" of the movie series. Graphic novel / chapter book combinations are all the rage right now, and this series is hot amongst 9-12 year olds!

Note: we haven't finished the whole book yet. I think my teenage son would give this book a 5 and I would too except for a few words that I find offensive. I know that s***ks is common use, but I don't like it. However, one of the boys in the story doesn't like it either (comments on the lack of creativity of most people who use the word) and decides to make up a new word to replace it. Kudos for Angleberger's creativity in that situation and his work in general! I do love the way his books get kids creating: making origami, drawing & writing. I'll give him 5 stars for that and a hug if I ever meet him.
