Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue: An Origami Yoda Book

Cover image for Princess Labelmaker to the rescue : an Origami Yoda bookThe kids at McQuarrie Middle School are back, suffering through the incredibly boring and inane FunTime test prep program. To fight the evil FunTime empire, they have formed a "Rebel Alliance."  Kids that used to be opponents are now united, each with their own origami puppet based on a Star Wars character. Will their combined force be enough to triumph over the powerful Principal Rabbski, or is she, as Yoda suggests, secretly sympathetic of the rebel cause?  This is the 5th installment in the hilarious Origami Yoda series. As in the others in the series the book is formatted as a "case file" written by the kids, and illustrated with doodles and cartoons by the students.  I think I may have skipped one of the series, but I wasn't too lost and understood the plot just fine. Angleberger does a good job of developing both the characters and the plot over the larger multi-book story arch.  These are such good books for the kids who are stuck on Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but are ready to make one more step toward less illustrated books. 184 p.
