The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger

An origami Yoda can't really predict the future...can it? One class believes that it can. Tommy isn't so sure, and he's decided to be as scientific as he can in finding out the truth. He asks the class for their experiences, has them record it in a notebook, has a friend add illustrations, and gives space for a known skeptic to refute the magic of Origami Yoda. This is that notebook.

This was such a fun book to read. I really love stories that are incorporating a number of different styles, including the hybrid of pictures and words; there are some really great books like that these days. This book perfectly captured the feeling that you have a child and you're pretty sure about something, but not quite, and you think it's impossible, but maybe there's a way? The perfect space for a story.

Find it at IndieBound.
