Darth Paper Strikes Back, Hardback
3.5 out of 5 (16 ratings)


This is the hilarious, clever and much-anticipated follow-up to the breakout hit, "The Strange Case of Origami Yoda".

Tom is an exciting new voice in middle grade fiction.

His spot-on portrayals of secondary school and the dynamics that exist between kids are realistic and humorous.

He's definitely a rising author to watch. This is the fantastic book for boys and reluctant readers especially.

Publishers "Weekly" said Tom's writing included 'spot-on boy banter,' "100 Scope Notes" called Yoda 'reluctant reader platinum,' and "Fuse No. 8" said, 'It's been a while since I found a book that can truly be called genderless (in that it has wide appeal across the board).' Lucasfilm is enthusiastically back on board with us for the second book.

It includes instructions for making your own original origami Darth Vader.

Darth Vader is the most popular "Star Wars" character, their 'Mickey Mouse' according to Lucas.

Although not as tightly crafted as book one, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, this is still a humorous look at a slightly strange adolescent, Dwight, and his origami finger puppet. This time, Dwight has an enemy who ends up getting Dwight kicked out of school. But wait a minute... was that the plan all along?

"Out of school kicked we have been.""Kicked out? For what, for having Yoda? No way!" said Kellen."Way yes," croaked Yoda. "Save Dwight you must... The truth for the school board you must write. Another case file is needed." Last year, Dwight and Origami Yoda gave great advice and kept the sixth grade at McQuarrie Middle School convinced that The Force must exist. It's a new year, and dark times are upon the seventh grade... Harvey's got an origami Darth Vader (Darth Paper), and that creepy breathy voice is spreading rumors, meanness and evil throughout the school. Dwight has been suspended, and the school board might decide to expel him, which means Origami Yoda won't be around to battle the Forces of Evil! Tommy, Kellen, Mike, Sara, and the others collect letters and stories in this case file to tell the school board why Dwight should be allowed to return to school. Lots of humor, illustrations, side comments and fun, all to save the oddest kid at McQuarrie! Loved it -- 6th grade and up.
