Display - Tom Angleberger

Author Tom Angleberger is coming to Provo Library!
October 19th, 11am-2pm
Tickets available Saturday, October 5th.

Sixth-grader Tommy and his friends describe their interactions with a paper finger puppet of Yoda, worn by their weird classmate Dwight, as they try to figure out whether or not the puppet can really predict the future.

 Harvey, upset when his Darth Paper finger puppet brings humiliation, gets Dwight suspended, but Origami Yoda asks Tommy and Kellen, now in seventh grade, to make a new casefile to persuade the School Board to reinstate Dwight.

McQuarrie Middle School's students miss Origami Yoda when Dwight leaves for Tippett Academy, but he sends Sara a paper Fortune Wookiee that seems to give advice just as good as Yoda's--even if, in the hands of girls, it seems preoccupied with romance.
When Principal Rabbski cancels the students' field trip -- along with art, music, and LEGO classes -- to make time for the new educational program FunTime, the students turn to Origami Yoda for help to defeat the "FunTime Menace" and cope with a surprise attack from Jabba the Puppett.
