While I was racing through Target on Tuesday trying to find a small present and book for each of my two older kids -- a reward for the arrival of awesome report cards that said they were doing wonderfully in everything and trying hard and behaving (!!!!) -- I passed a funny looking little book, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger.
My first thought: Does no one tire of Star Wars?
My second thought: Ella and Nethaniel will probably love this.
Sometimes reading just needs to be flat out fun. Nothing deep, nothing serious. Just a story about a boy who makes an oragami finger puppet of Yoda.
So in honor of this unexpected find, we bring you this week's Star Wars-themed Friday Finds otherwise known as the Oragami Yoda Series:
1) The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger (book 1)
2) Darth Paper Strikes Back by Tom Angleberger
3) The Secret of the Fortune Wookie by Tom Angleberger
