The big question is: Is Origami Yoda real?
Well, of course he’s real. I mean, he’s a real finger puppet made out of a real piece of paper.
But I mean: Is he REAL? Does he really know things? Can he see the future? Does he use the Force?
Or is he just a hoax that fooled a whole bunch of us at McQuarrie Middle School?
These are the questions that lead sixth grader Tommy to put together a case file of the unusual events that happen to him and his classmates when confronted with the seemingly wise and prophetic Jedi finger puppet.
Origami Yoda is the creation of Dwight, one of the weirdest and dorkiest kids in school. Dwight likes to dig holes in his yard and sit in them. Some of his conversations consist of only saying “purple.” Now he comes to school with a little green puppet and expects people to ask Yoda for his opinions. The strange thing is that Yoda starts giving out really good advice, advice that Dwight couldn’t possibly think up on his own…or could he?
