The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, by Tom Angleberger

The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, by Tom Angleberger is an entertaining book about a group of 6th grade friends.  The entire book is a series of stories written by members of the group.  Each friend tells his story about the advice they were given by Origami Yoda, a finger puppet made and worn by Dwight.  Dwight is an odd, but likable character, who seems to enjoy being different even though it often gets him trouble with both his friends and the teachers.  This book is the winner of the 2012 Rhode Island Children Book Awards.  That means, a lot of students read it, and liked it enough to vote for it.  Why don't you check it out?

The Strange Case of Origami Yoda is a really good book.  It's funny and has hilarious characters.  The main characters are Dwight, Tommy, Harvey, Rhondella, Sara and Keller.  They are also creative.  The book is about a kid who makes an origami version of Yoda and is answering questions for everyone.  It takes place in an average middle school.  The author's message is that everyone is different.  You'll get the message as you read it.  I would recommend this book for people who like comedy.
