The third case file of the New York Times bestselling Origami Yoda series from Tom Angleberger!
Is it possible to have a case file without Origami Yoda?
With Dwight suspended, McQuarrie Middle School is missing its most famous attendee: Origami Yoda. And no Yoda means no case file mystery to solve. But then something BIG happens. Something BIG and HAIRY. It's a Fortune Wookiee, a paper fortune teller in the form of Chewbacca. Sara brings it to school as a gift from Dwight, and it seems to give advice that's just as good as Yoda's. Mysterious it is!
Tommy, Kellen, and Harvey are on the case. And when their classmates start having strange "Dwight sightings" (sightings of Dwight in which he is acting WAY too normal), the boys have TWO mysteries to solve. The closer they get, the more possible it seems that Origami Yoda will be back . . .
**STARRED REVIEW**Kirkus Reviews, starred review —
"A chorus of spot-on middle school voices and plenty of laughs are wrapped around this tale of friendship and seasoned with Star Wars references."
"Angleberger’s grasp of middle-school emotions, humor and behavior is spot-on, and parents who want to get a sense of what it’s like be a preteen these days might consider reading this book. But you'll likely have to pry it out of your young reader’s hands first."Scripps Howard News Service —
