Frist reading 8 19 2011Audio Book 4 18 2012Better than the first You must read this book
As a general rule, I do not read sequels I m SO glad I made an exception I liked Darth Paper Strikes Back even than Origami Yoda Bravo, Tom Angleberger
This was a cute sequel and an improvement on the original ORIGAMI YODA.Dwight, owner and inventor of Origami Yoda, is facing expulsion All of his friends rally around him to present their case on why he s a great kid who deserves to stay at McQuarrie Middle School.I found that my earlier comparison of these books to DIARY OF A WIMPY KID was unjust For one thing, the kids in this series actually have a conscience and aren t total a holes like the Wimpy kids are They can be annoying, gross, or imm [...]
Muy divertido No hab a le do el 1 , pero ven a viajando aburrida, lo ten a a mano y me puse a ojearlo Lo termin leyendo todo Muy original y gracioso
I was surprisingly disappointed with this book It s the sequel to The Strange Case of Origami Yoda which I was lucky enough to receive a signed copy from my library , and I absolutely loved that book In this book, the school board is deciding whether or not to send Dwight, along with his Origami Yoda finger puppet, to a reform school for bad kids Tommy, Kellen and the rest of the kids at MQuarrie Middle School except Harvey make a new case file telling the stories of the advice Origami Yoda gave [...]
A fun and silly sequel that follows up the first book rather well I was happy with how things ended very relieved, actually Still enjoyed the many Star Wars references, quotes, and doodles I didn t think the story stories quite measured up to the first book, and I didn t feel I got to know the characters as well in this book There was also still my issue with some of the language name calling meanness There was quaffling over the first book whether or not to put it in YF or JF JF won out, especi [...]
Well, this would get 3.5 star rating because towards the end, it talk s about what they did at a school board meeting and stuff like that But at the end, Dwight doesn t go to CREF He goes to whatever school Caroline goes to.
No subestimes el poder del lado oscuro, Darth Paper es incluso mejor que El extra o caso de Yoda Origami.Divertido y gracioso, muy recomendado para los peque os padawans.
I did not like this book because DARTH PAPER IS MEAN I also did not like this book because Harvey is in of the book than the last book and Harvey is mean Harvey made Darth Paper.
I liked this even than The Strange Case of Origami Yoda Still humorous, and this time with a story line than promotes even strongly that we need to be understanding of people around us even if especially if we don t quite understand them Dwight is still his quirky self in this second book The first book is a case file constructed by Dwight s classmates, primarily his friend Tommy They re gathering evidence to determine whether Origami Yoda is real or not His advice is always spot on, but how C [...]
If you thought that the happy conclusion to The Strange Case of Origami Yoda was the end of the major troubles for Dwight, Tommy, Kellen and the rest of the group, then you were mistaken Their problems only seem to escalate in this second book of the series as a misunderstanding between Dwight, his Origami Yoda finger puppet and a girl who asks the tiny Jedi oracle a very important question balloons into a fiasco that finds Dwight suspended from school indefinitely, and subject to a hearing that [...]
This book came out yesterday I preordered from so last night I started it, and I finished it today, I loved the first book, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger, and was totally ready for super silly fun Summary The hilarious, clever, and much anticipated follow up to the breakout hit, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda.It is a dark time at Ralph McQuarrie Middle School After suffering several Origami Yoda related humiliations, Harvey manages to get Dwight suspended from school for [...]
This sequel is even better than the 1st book Hmm, kind of like how Empire Strikes back is better than A New Hope Intentional Dwight is suspended from school, with a possible transfer to a correctional school yikes Origami Yoda is to blame he gave scarey advice to a cheerleader and somehow it s interpreted as a threat Tommy and his friends want to show all the good Origami Yoda has done so Tommy puts together this case file to save Origami Yoda Dwight.However, dark forces are at work here Harvey [...]
Darth Paper strikes back is a sequel to The strange case of origami Yoda and follows the main character, Dwight, but is told in the third person point of view by Tommy After Harvey was humiliated in The strange case of Origami Yoda he builds Darth Paper Harvey s goal was to kick Origami Yoda a.k.a Dwight out of school so they would never come back Harvey succeeded with his plan and managed to kick Dwight out of school, but not for long The news spread like the flu and letters were started to be [...]

As the second installment of the Origami Yoda book series, Darth Paper Strikes Back finds the gang from McQuarrie School is now in seventh grade This time, Dwight, the man behind Origami Yoda himself is at the risk of suspension, so Tommy and the crew must put together a case file to prove his innocence However, events continue to complicate as The Dark Side emerges with Harvey s creation of Darth Paper The book paints a near perfect image of the life of a middle schooler in which young readers [...]
I couldn t wait for this one to come out I had high hopes and the force did not fail me Tom Angleberger s Darth Paper Strikes Back is just as fantastic as Origami Yoda I loved it Dwight is suspended from middle school because Origami Yoda told a cheerleader she was doomed That and because of the awesome moment in the last book when he tried to beat up the bully Harvey, the jerky kid who disrespectfully called Yoda, paperwad Yoda, creates a Origami Darth Vadar Tommy and his friends must make anot [...]
Remember the The Strange Case of Origami Yoda who had an uncanny ability to offer brilliant problem solving advice Yeah, everybody loved him Well, not quite everybody Harvey did not, nor was he fond of Dwight, the maker and handler of the finger puppet Now, Harvey has gone to the Dark Side, created an origami Darth Vader, and wants to fight He says he just wants everyone to admit that there s nothing special about Yoda, and maybe that s true But this is not proving to be a good year for all of D [...]
Disclaimer Still a 32 year old married man reading YA fiction because it is entertaining and witty without resorting to content that is unsavory There were a few rude outbursts by characters including a DW, which surprised me.Origami Yoda is back, and now he and Dwight have to deal with Harvey and his Darth Paper.Many of the original characters return and the framing device for this volume is nothing short of brilliant rather than a case book to fuel the curiosity of whether or not Origami Yoda [...]
This is the second book in the Origami Yoda series It was just as well done as the first book I think middle grade boys will really enjoy these.cially if they are Star Wars fan.Last year Dwight helped the class with his strangely accurate advice from his Origami Yoda This year however is a dark year, Dwight s nemesis Harvey has created Darth Paper and is sabotaging all the good Origami Yoda does This book is a collection of anecdotes from Dwight s classmates who are banding together to save Dwig [...]
Dwight is in trouble again for origami related mischief This time, the school thinks he is unbalanced enough that they want to send him to the Correctional and Remedial Educational Facility Tommy and Kellen use their investigative skills to put together a plan to convince the principal that Dwight is not the threat that he seems.Strengths Mr Angleberger really understands middle school the way that allegiances change, the difficulties of romance combined with what your friends will think, the qu [...]
After reading and throughly enjoying The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, my daughter informed me that there was a sequel So I was derailed briefly from my Caudill List goal I just had to see what happened with Dwight and Origami Yoda And just who created Darth Paper And what would this mean to the balance in The Force at McQuarrie Middle School This book did not disappoint We got to know each character a bit , especially Dwight It is still told in the same format a different student writes each ch [...]
Yet another good book in the Origami Yoda series, with even weirdness, finger puppets, and the evil Harvey.The school thinks Dwight is a bad influence and threaten to send him to CREF, a school for juvenile deliquents which Dwight is NOT If the kids don t make another case file that persuades the school board to let Dwight go back to McQuarrie Middle School, Dwight would get pummelled to shreds at CREF To make things worse, Harvey makes an anti Origami Yoda puppet named Darth Paper and then wri [...]
My son and I did a little dance in the bookstore today when we saw that Darth Paper had been put on display a week early We scooped up a copy and headed to the check out He was kind enough to let me read it first I began the book with zero preconceived ideas I adored Origami Yoda but wasn t sure what the plot was for Darth Paper.Without giving too much away so I don t spoil the book, the kids are all back in this sequel The book is set up in a similar format to Origami Yoda in that Dwight is in [...]
Tom Angleberger still has the Force on his side Darth Paper Strikes Back is an awesome and gripping sequel to The Strange Case of Origami Yoda I couldn t put the book down The Harvey Darth Paper team was the perfect antagonist to Dwight Origami Yoda They used the power of the Dark Side to start turning things upside down at Ralph McQuarrie Middle School Actually, they used the power of words That s what I really love about these books Even with Origami Yoda and Darth Paper, these books still foc [...]
I loved Darth Paper Strikes Back because it had such a good story and it had different perspectives The characters in the book wrote about what they felt about something or about something that happened to them I like it because it has my two favorite things in the world, Star Wars and origami It is very different than anything else I ve read It has a lot of Star Wars stuff and is about a group of friends who don t want their friend to get suspended from their school, so they write a case file a [...]
I read this so I could help my third grade son with his book report project He was supposed to read a humorous book, and I dreaded reading whatever a third grader might find funny This was surprisingly exceptional It was hilarious and entertaining and yet poignant and meaningful There were actually several deep messages imparted in funny and creative ways The ending was fantastic and so unexpected Call me impressed I did think it was crazy that seventh graders were datingke real dates to the mov [...]
Juvenile fiction is not my favorite, but this was fun and funny and better than the first, which I liked a lot I hope there s to come Incidentally, I wooed my boyfriend with Robot Dreams among other things , so I was charmed when Tommy pulled the same with his love interest That s a prepubescent boy who deserves a girlfriend.
