Darth Paper Strikes Back by Tom Angleberger

This is the second Origami Yoda book.  I really enjoyed the first one, and I enjoyed this one as well. In this one, Dwight, the creator of Origami Yoda has been expelled, and the school principal is threatening to send him to a correctional school.  Yoda asks Tommy to collect another case file to present to the school board at Dwight's expulsion hearing.  Harvey, Dwight's rival, has made a Darth Paper puppet and is trying to ruin and discredit all of Dwight and Tommy's efforts.  Really, the book is really just a way to tell more Origami Yoda stories, and that is fine.  They are funny and clever.  Angleberger adds enough plot, and a nice twist at the end to keep the story moving.  I think I will just plan on reading everything that comes out by Angleberger.
