Middle Grade Book Discussion @ online via Zoom

Middle Grade Book Discussion @ online via Zoom

Discussion of “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda” by Tom Angleberger.
“It takes the wisdom of Yoda to survive the sixth grade. Meet Dwight, a sixth-grade oddball. Dwight does a lot of weird things, like wearing the same T-shirt for a month or telling people to call him ‘Captain Dwight.’ But Dwight does one cool thing. He makes origami. One day he makes an origami finger puppet of Yoda. And that’s when things get mysterious. Origami Yoda can predict the future and suggest the best way to deal with a tricky situation. His advice actually works, and soon most of the sixth grade is lining up with questions.”
Books are now available to borrow!
