Dwight is an oddball of a sixth grader. He does weird things like wear the same t-shirt for a month straight, dig holes in his yard and sit in them, and make people call him “Captain Dwight.” Dwight does do one cool thing, though – he’s really good at origami.
Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper. You take a sheet of paper and turn it into something new like cranes, frogs, turtles… and Yoda. Dwight makes his very own Origami Yoda, who is capable of using the Force to tell the future and give the best advice.
The sixth graders have all asked Origami Yoda for advice, but not everyone is sure that Origami Yoda is real. Tommy, who sits with Dwight at lunch every day, decides to investigate the strange case of the Origami Yoda. He asks all of the kids who have gotten advice from Origami Yoda about their experiences, and whether or not the advice was good and helped them. They need to figure out why Origami Yoda is so clever when Dwight is, well, Dwight. Is Yoda using the Force?
This book was a fun read! Each chapter tells a different character’s story, so it’s fresh and interesting from start to finish. It is also really funny!
