    1. Everyone’s favorite misfit savant is back, now in seventh grade, and in more trouble than ever!Due to a misunderstanding (and his long history of misbehavior), Dwight Tharp has been suspended from McQuarrie Middle School and recommended to be reassigned to the Correctional and Remedial Education Facility, a school for truly disturbed — and disturbing — kids. His pals Tommy, Kellen, Mike, Lance, Quivondo, and Caroline are once again compiling a casebook — this time not to decide whether O [...]

    2. Mum: Let's start with the stars: how many?LRN: 130,000.Mum: How about five?LRN: NOOO. TOO GOOD.Mum: So, this is a sequel to The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. Was it better than the first book? The same? LRN: Better, but a bit different. Dwight, the oddball in 6th grade, is going to be expelled, so his friends try to save him from his nemesis or rival, Harvey.Mum: What does Harvey have to do with Dwight being expelled?LRN: Harvey is saying bad things about Dwight, and one word: Darth Paper.(Well, [...]

    3. As a general rule, I do not read sequels. I'm SO glad I made an exception. I liked Darth Paper Strikes Back even more than Origami Yoda. Bravo, Tom Angleberger!

    4. This was a cute sequel and an improvement on the original ORIGAMI YODA.Dwight, owner and inventor of Origami Yoda, is facing expulsion. All of his friends rally around him to present their case on why he's a great kid who deserves to stay at McQuarrie Middle School.I found that my earlier comparison of these books to DIARY OF A WIMPY KID was unjust. For one thing, the kids in this series actually have a conscience and aren't total a**holes like the Wimpy kids are. They can be annoying, gross, or [...]

    5. Muy divertido!!No había leído el 1º, pero venía viajando aburrida, lo tenía a mano y me puse a ojearlo. Lo terminé leyendo todo. Muy original y gracioso ^^

    6. I was surprisingly disappointed with this book. It's the sequel to 'The Strange Case of Origami Yoda' (which I was lucky enough to receive a signed copy from my library), and I absolutely loved that book. In this book, the school board is deciding whether or not to send Dwight, along with his Origami Yoda finger puppet, to a reform school for bad kids. Tommy, Kellen and the rest of the kids at MQuarrie Middle School (except Harvey) make a new case file telling the stories of the advice Origami Y [...]

    7. A fun (and silly) sequel that follows up the first book rather well. I was happy with how things ended--very relieved, actually. Still enjoyed the many Star Wars references, quotes, and doodles. I didn't think the story/stories quite measured up to the first book, and I didn't feel I got to know the characters as well in this book. There was also still my issue with some of the language/name-calling/meanness. There was quaffling over the first book whether or not to put it in YF or JF. JF won ou [...]

    8. Well, this would get 3.5 star rating because towards the end, it talk's about what they did at a school board meeting and stuff like that. But at the end, Dwight doesn't go to CREF. He goes to whatever school Caroline goes to.

    9. No subestimes el poder del lado oscuro, Darth Paper es incluso mejor que El extraño caso de Yoda Origami.Divertido y gracioso, muy recomendado para los pequeños padawans.

    10. 😠I did not like this book because DARTH PAPER IS MEAN.😠 I also did not like this book because Harvey is in more of the book than the last book and Harvey is mean.😠 Harvey made Darth Paper.😠

    11. I liked this even more than The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. Still humorous, and this time with a story line than promotes even more strongly that we need to be understanding of people around us even if especially if we don't quite understand them. Dwight is still his quirky self in this second book. The first book is a case file constructed by Dwight's classmates, primarily his friend Tommy. They're gathering evidence to determine whether Origami Yoda is real or not. His advice is always spot [...]

    12. If you thought that the happy conclusion to The Strange Case of Origami Yoda was the end of the major troubles for Dwight, Tommy, Kellen and the rest of the group, then you were mistaken. Their problems only seem to escalate in this second book of the series as a misunderstanding between Dwight, his Origami Yoda finger puppet and a girl who asks the tiny Jedi oracle a very important question balloons into a fiasco that finds Dwight suspended from school indefinitely, and subject to a hearing tha [...]

    13. This book came out yesterday. I preordered from so last night I started it, and I finished it today, I loved the first book, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger, and was totally ready for more super-silly fun! Summary:The hilarious, clever, and much-anticipated follow-up to the breakout hit, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda.It is a dark time at Ralph McQuarrie Middle School. After suffering several Origami Yoda–related humiliations, Harvey manages to get Dwight suspended from [...]

    14. This sequel is even better than the 1st book! Hmm, kind of like how Empire Strikes back is better than A New Hope. Intentional?Dwight is suspended from school, with a possible transfer to a correctional school--yikes! Origami Yoda is to blame--he gave scarey "advice" to a cheerleader and somehow it's interpreted as a "threat." Tommy and his friends want to show all the good Origami Yoda has done so Tommy puts together this case file to save Origami Yoda/Dwight.However, dark forces are at work he [...]

    15. “Darth Paper strikes back” is a sequel to “The strange case of origami Yoda” and follows the main character, Dwight, but is told in the third person point of view by Tommy. After Harvey was humiliated in “The strange case of Origami Yoda” he builds Darth Paper. Harvey's goal was to kick Origami Yoda a.k.a Dwight out of school so they would never come back. Harvey succeeded with his plan and managed to kick Dwight out of school, but not for long. The news spread like the flu and lette [...]

    16. Dwight Tharp, king of misfits and resident savant at McQuarrie Middle School, is leaving. Unless his friends can save him. A campaign championed a few disgruntled students has brought Dwight’s history of disruptive behavior to the attention of the school principle; he’s been suspended and reassigned to the Correctional and Remedial Education Facility (CREF), an alternative school for disturbed students.Tommy and his friends Kellen, Mike, Lance, Quivondo, and Caroline start a new case--not to [...]

    17. As the second installment of the Origami Yoda book series, Darth Paper Strikes Back finds the gang from McQuarrie School is now in seventh grade. This time, Dwight, the man behind Origami Yoda himself is at the risk of suspension, so Tommy and the crew must put together a case file to prove his innocence. However, events continue to complicate as “The Dark Side” emerges with Harvey’s creation of Darth Paper. The book paints a near perfect image of the life of a middle-schooler in which you [...]

    18. I couldn’t wait for this one to come out. I had high hopes and the force did not fail me. Tom Angleberger’s Darth Paper Strikes Back is just as fantastic as Origami Yoda. I loved it! Dwight is suspended from middle school because Origami Yoda told a cheerleader she was doomed. That and because of the awesome moment in the last book when he tried to beat up the bully. Harvey, the jerky kid who disrespectfully called Yoda, paperwad Yoda, creates a Origami Darth Vadar. Tommy and his friends mus [...]

    19. Remember the The Strange Case of Origami Yoda who had an uncanny ability to offer brilliant problem-solving advice? Yeah, everybody loved him. Well, not quite everybody. Harvey did not, nor was he fond of Dwight, the maker and handler of the finger puppet. Now, Harvey has gone to the Dark Side, created an origami Darth Vader, and wants to fight. He says he just wants everyone to admit that there's nothing special about Yoda, and maybe that's true. But this is not proving to be a good year for al [...]

    20. Disclaimer: Still a 32 year old married man reading YA fiction because it is entertaining and witty without resorting to content that is unsavory. There were a few rude outbursts by characters including a DW, which surprised me.Origami Yoda is back, and now he (and Dwight) have to deal with Harvey and his Darth Paper.Many of the original characters return and the framing device for this volume is nothing short of brilliant - rather than a case book to fuel the curiosity of whether or not Origami [...]

    21. This is the second book in the Origami Yoda series. It was just as well done as the first book; I think middle grade boys will really enjoy these.cially if they are Star Wars fan.Last year Dwight helped the class with his strangely accurate advice from his Origami Yoda. This year however is a dark year, Dwight’s nemesis Harvey has created Darth Paper and is sabotaging all the good Origami Yoda does. This book is a collection of anecdotes from Dwight’s classmates who are banding together to s [...]

    22. Dwight is in trouble again for origami related mischief. This time, the school thinks he is unbalanced enough that they want to send him to the Correctional and Remedial Educational Facility. Tommy and Kellen use their investigative skills to put together a plan to convince the principal that Dwight is not the threat that he seems.Strengths: Mr. Angleberger really understands middle school-- the way that allegiances change, the difficulties of romance combined with what your friends will think, [...]

    23. After reading and throughly enjoying The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, my daughter informed me that there was a sequel. So I was derailed briefly from my Caudill List goal. I just had to see what happened with Dwight and Origami Yoda. And just who created Darth Paper? And what would this mean to the balance in The Force at McQuarrie Middle School? This book did not disappoint. We got to know each character a bit more, especially Dwight. It is still told in the same format- a different student wr [...]

    24. Yet another good book in the Origami Yoda series, with even more weirdness, finger puppets, and the evil Harvey.The school thinks Dwight is a bad influence and threaten to send him to CREF, a school for juvenile deliquents (which Dwight is NOT). If the kids don't make another case file that persuades the school board to let Dwight go back to McQuarrie Middle School, Dwight would get pummelled to shreds at CREF. To make things worse, Harvey makes an anti Origami Yoda puppet named Darth Paper and [...]

    25. My son and I did a little dance in the bookstore today when we saw that Darth Paper had been put on display a week early. We scooped up a copy and headed to the check-out. He was kind enough to let me read it first. I began the book with zero preconceived ideas. I adored Origami Yoda but wasn't sure what the plot was for Darth Paper.Without giving too much away so I don't spoil the book, the kids are all back in this sequel. The book is set up in a similar format to Origami Yoda in that Dwight i [...]

    26. Tom Angleberger still has the Force on his side. Darth Paper Strikes Back is an awesome and gripping sequel to The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. I couldn’t put the book down!The Harvey/Darth Paper team was the perfect antagonist to Dwight/Origami Yoda. They used the power of the Dark Side to start turning things upside-down at Ralph McQuarrie Middle School. Actually, they used the power of words. That’s what I really love about these books! Even with Origami Yoda and Darth Paper, these books [...]

    27. I loved Darth Paper Strikes Back because it had such a good story and it had different perspectives. The characters in the book wrote about what they felt about something or about something that happened to them. I like it because it has my two favorite things in the world, Star Wars and origami. It is very different than anything else I've read. It has a lot of Star Wars stuff and is about a group of friends who don't want their friend to get suspended from their school, so they write a case fi [...]

    28. I read this so I could help my third-grade son with his book report project. He was supposed to read a humorous book, and I dreaded reading whatever a third grader might find funny. This was surprisingly exceptional. It was hilarious and entertaining and yet poignant and meaningful. There were actually several deep messages imparted in funny and creative ways. The ending was fantastic and so unexpected. Call me impressed.*I did think it was crazy that seventh graders were datingke real dates to [...]

    29. Juvenile fiction is not my favorite, but this was fun and funny and better than the first, which I liked a lot. I hope there's more to come. Incidentally, I wooed my boyfriend with Robot Dreams (among other things), so I was charmed when Tommy pulled the same with his love interest. That's a prepubescent boy who deserves a girlfriend.
