Committee annotation:

Is Origami Yoda real? Or is it just Dwight who is answering everyone’s questions with his Origami Yoda? Tommy enlists the help of his classmates, gathering stories and sketches to find out the truth. Tommy needs to know if Origami Yoda is real because he needs to know if he can trust him with a very important question…

  1. Origami Yoda was good. At the end these two characters faced off against each other to see which Origami Yoda was better, Harvey's or Dwight's. I recommend this to anybody who likes Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

    The book I read was The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, and it was the best book I ever read and it was really funny. The funniest part was when Harvey threw Dwight’s origami yoda into the trash. I thought it was the best book ever because I liked every part in the whole book. I thought origami yoda was the best character. I would recommend this for anyone.

    I read the Strange Case of Origami Yoda and I thought it was a very funny book. I thought it a very funny because in the story a kid went in his pants and Origami Yoda had to help him. I thought it was a funny book because at the end the boy was dancing goofy. I thought it was a funny book because they had a battle with the two yodas to see who could really predict the future I would recommend this book to everyone!

    The Strange Case of Origami
    I read The Strange Case of Origami Yoda I think it is a good book for 5th graders. I think The Strange Case Of Origami is a good book I am not going to get into details because I don’t want to spoil it but I think origami Yoda is useful because he helped a lot of people. I also think he is a joke because he did not solve problems all the time. I think it was a trick because he gets a girl at a dance. I think this was a good book for 5th grade.

    “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda”
    The book I read was The Strange Case of Origami Yoda because I kind of like “Star Wars” and plus I like the book at first sight. My favorite part about the book was when Harvey and Dwight had an Origami Yoda fight and Dwight Yoda is the good guy and Harvey’s Yoda was the bad guy and they fought and the bad guy won but Dwight’s Yoda got back up and defeated him. The part that I don’t like is the part that when Tommy gets the girl then they do the “Hooky-Poky.”If I was able to rate the book, then I would give this book 5 stars.

    I read the book The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. It was a good book, especially if you are into comedy. I think it was a good book because every chapter was someone else telling how origami Yoda helped them. Also the book was really funny; the guy who made yoda was a loser. I also liked the book because it wasn’t one of those books that you get into the middle of and then hate it. I also thought the cover of the book was really interesting. If you were too look at the book, I think you would want to read it. The author made the cover look cool, he put a lot of details and little doodles around the edges. I personally think that if you like funny books, read “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda.” I would definitely recommend this to the fifth graders who are hoping to read a lot of RICBA books

    I read the book The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and I loved how hilarious it was. Tommy’s friend wrote a lot of pictures and most of them went along with the stories but others were just random. Tommy asks everyone how Origami Yoda so he can find out if Origami Yoda is real or just a split personality of Dwight. You can find out how to make Origami Yoda in the back of the book. I would recommend this book to people who are good at origami and who enjoy a funny story.

  8. I think that this book is a very awesome book. I also like how it teaches you how to make Origami Yoda. I would recommend this book to someone who likes Star Wars. I cannot wait to read the second one!

  9. I read the book Origami Yoda. I thought it was a very good book. It was a very good way to write a book a Yoda that was made out of paper that gave out answers to people that asked Origami Yoda questions. This was really good because it was Yoda looked like and what the person who made him and what the person who made him personalities like. The author Tom Angeberger is a very good writer on books I want to read much more maybe I’ll even read the book Darth Paper Strikes Back. I bet it will be as good as origami yoda or even better than Origami Yoda. This book was amazing In allot of ways like one was that I love star wars and at first I thought I was going to involve lots of action but it wasn’t the other way was that it was very explanatory and had lots of details and retelling .I loved this book it was very exciting to read and I also think that my teacher Mrs.Tomson should read the whole series to the whole class room so we don’t have to read them all and not have time to read anything else and also so we can have a class book that we would love to read. I’m very glad I read the book Origami yoda!!!

  10. I read The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. I think this book is very good because kids try to figure out if Origami Yoda s real, or if he is just a stupid peace of folded paper. The reason I chose this book is because it sounded and looked interesting. This book is about a kid named Tommy who tries to figure out if Origami gives good, true advice or f he is just a puppet on a finger that gives bad advice. But then I started thinking, what if this book is just really dull, but then I read it and it made me want to read the next book in the series. Another reason I chose this book is because it sounded like t was a funny and adventures book. But then I started getting to the end and there was an Origami Yoda war against the two dorks in the school, Dwight and Harvey. They each got a question from Tommy, “Does Sara like me?” So at the end of the dance, Tommy was dancing with Sara. So that’s why I thought this book was a good, interesting book. So if you want to read a good book like this, Go to a book store and get The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. Then get Darth Paper Strikes Back.

    This sounds like a really great book, and I hope to read it sometime soon. I'm really into origami, so does anyone know a website where I can get the instructions to make the origami yoda?

  24. The Strange Case Of Origami Yoda has a funny and original topic. It has drawings on every page and is in the form of a case file to prove origami yoda is real. The story is about a boy named Dwight who made an origami yoda. Origami yoda supposedly can see into the future. Everyone one at Dwight's school comes to origami yoda for advice. I thought this book was really funny and I loved the second one.
