The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Origami Yoda series from Tom Angleberger!

A field trip without origami? What the Hutt?

The Origami Rebel Alliance is off to Washington, D.C.! But there's a hitch. Principal Rabbski has banned origami. Without the Jedi-wise advice of Origami Yoda, how will Tommy and the gang navigate the serious drama of a class trip?

Luckily, Dwight comes prepared with green Fruit Roll-Ups that he can whip into emergency Fruitigami Yodas. Unluckily, Harvey also comes prepared with a wrinkly, hateful pickle. Can Fruitigami Yoda figure out why Emperor Pickletine is acting so sour . . . before the Emperor pushes this field trip into the Dark Side?

The final battle between the forces of good and evil at McQuarrie has everything: Twists! Snacks! Secrets! But who is keeping the biggest secret of all? Origami Yoda himself, and it's a shocker!

Includes instructions for folding your own origami.

Praise

"Angleberger closes his six-plus-volume (there is a companion origami manual with stories) series of doodle-filled Star Wars paeans with an enjoyable, funny and realistic denouement that nicely wraps up most of the series storylines. Age-appropriate boy-girl relationships add to the authenticity of the characters, who will soon be eighth graders. One last time: "stooky!" (Er, "fantastic!")"
Kirkus Reviews
"...Angleberger’s characteristic humor remains in abundant supply..."
— Julia Smith, Booklist Online
"Fans of the series won’t want to miss the satisfying conclusion."
— Michele Shaw, Quail Run Elementary School, San Ramon, CA, School Library Journal
