With Dwight attending Tippett Academy this semester, the kids of McQuarrie Middle School are on their own—no Origami Yoda to give advice and help them navigate the treacherous waters of middle school. Then Sara gets a gift she says is from Dwight—a paper fortune-teller in the form of Chewbacca. It’s a Fortune Wookiee, and it seems to give advice that’s just as good as Yoda’s—even if, in the hands of the girls, it seems too preoccupied with romance. In the meantime, Dwight is fitting in a little too well at Tippett. Has the unimaginable happened? Has Dwight become normal? It’s up to his old friends at McQuarrie to remind their kooky friend that it’s in his weirdness that his greatness lies.

This is the third case file in the blockbuster bestselling Origami Yoda series, written by Tom Angleberger, author of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi: Beware the Power of the Dark Side, showcasing his proven knack for authentically capturing the intrigues, fads, and dramas of middle school in “a satisfying tale of friendship and just resistance to authority” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

Praise for The Secret of the Fortune Wookieehas crafted a worthy follow-up to his break
"Angleberger’s third in the series continues the fun. A chorus of spot-on middle school voices and plenty of laughs are wrapped around this tale of friendship and seasoned with Star Wars references."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Tom Angleberger offers a hilarious third book in his best-selling series starring origami Star Wars characters. Angleberger’s grasp of middle-school emotions, humor and behavior is spot-on, and parents who want to get a sense of what it’s like be a preteen these days might consider reading this book. But you'll likely have to pry it out of your young reader’s hands first."

                  So first of all this book is about Star Wars and oragami anyway this book is about a boy named Dwight who is normal loves making oragami such as his favourite one called oragami yoda but hates having hugs with other people anyway Dwight got suspended from Macquarrie Middle school together with missing its most famous attendee, oragami yoda. And without yoda it means no case to mystery to solve. But then a boy named Tommy wonders if he can find anything more interesting then the first man in moon until something happens and hairy big guy comes out of no where named a Chewbacca together with Sara bringing it to school as a gift from Dwight together with being better then yoda and Han foldo which is the new name for San solo as the translator for what Chewbacca is speaking. Tommy, Kellen and Harvey are in the case of seeing Dwight sightings around the place in which is yoda' s acting is way far to its normal way and together the boys are trying to bring yoda back to the school. Will they get closer and would they fail idk The book is awesome and in the end shows how to make origami Chewbacca

                      I thought the lovable wookie as a fortune teller would be awesome. And it is. I love this series a lot.
