Overall, “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda” by Tom Angleberger is well written for older elementary aged to middle school aged children. The use of journal entry-like writing is something different than what most novels provide and gives students more of a variety. Also, by adding pictures here and there, it helps to not scare kids away from thinking it’s a “hard” book.
The characters in the book are very relatable. They are worrying about normal things that kids their age should be worrying about which really helps give young readers a sense of apathy towards the characters.
The plot itself is exciting and eventful. By allowing each character to explain their own story and stance, it lets the reader join in on the debate of whether or not to believe in Origami Yoda.
I think this is a good pleasure read for children, probably geared more towards boys but something girls might enjoy as well. The “Yoda” aspect of it is probably going to appeal more to male readers. However, the “How To” diagram in the back would be fun for any gender or age! For it being a children’s book, I really did enjoy this quick and easy read.
