Anyway, I just finished this book tonight with my daughter and we are already looking forward to the next installment, Art2-D2 coming March 2013.
So what's the theology skinny on these books?
Theology: Look to the force you should
God is not discussed in any way, shape, or form in these novels. The kids look to these origami characters for advice, some might consider it prophesy or fortune telling (I don't personally). So some parents might have concerns. If you're the kind of parent that didn't want your kids to read Harry Potter because it was about witchcraft, then you probably won't like these books for your kids either. But we're not talking ouija boards or the occult here, we're talking about a creative expression of kid wisdom. It's a fun read with a lot of Star Wars references, and I don't worry that my daughter is going to seek spiritual guidance from folded paper. Don't take it from me, read it and decide for yourself if you're worried.
The only profanity looks like this - #$%&!!!. Good, family friendly fun. Nothing to worry about.
The themes in this book are individualism vs. conformity. Acceptance for who you are, not who people think you are. There is some fun poked at ridiculous school administration initiatives and teachers that don't `get it.' The library is the only cool place to hang out (because the librarian is cool, of course).
This is the third book in a series. So you might want to check out the first two before you read this one. They are all good reads. And with origami instructions at the back of the books, how can you go wrong?
I think one of the things that shines through in this series of books is the fact that everyone is different and that's okay. In fact life would be very boring if everyone was the same, people like Dwight add spice to the world, as Tommy and his friends discover in this book. By the time the book is over, I wanted Dwight back with all his idiosyncrasies. If you enjoy books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Dork Diaries you will most likely like this book also.
He really liked this one as well, but said it had a little too much girl stuff in it. Which would probably be a good thing, but unfortunately it just means he's not going to ask for any more in this series to read.
