The Strange Case of Origami Yoda - Read it you must

Angleberger, Tom. 2010. The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. New York: Amulet.
Origami Yoda
(My own Origami Yoda says "Read it you must!)

Dwight is a 6th grade oddball, but he's good at one thing - origami.  When his origami Yoda begins to tell the future and give advice, Tommy and his friends can't decide whether to believe him or not.  The Strange Case of Origami Yoda is the illustrated case file of the mysterious events surrounding Origami Yoda -- as told and illustrated by Tommy (whose future romance hangs in the balance), Harvey (the skeptic), Jennifer (the texter), Quavondo (a.k.a. The Cheeto Hog) and other members of McQuarrie Middle School.

Is this a great book? Irresistibly insightful and funny?
"Certain am I," said Dwight's Yoda.
I agree!

A sample chapter can be viewed online @ Abrams Books.
