The much anticipated third book in the blockbuster bestselling Origami Yoda series!

With Dwight suspended, McQuarrie Middle School is missing its most famous attendee: origami Yoda. And no Yoda means no case file mystery to solve. But just as Tommy wonders if he’ll ever find anything interesting to write about again, something BIG happens. Something BIG and HAIRY. It’s a fortune Wookiee, a paper fortune teller in the form of Chewbacca. Sara brings it to school as a gift from Dwight, and it seems to give advice that’s just as good as Yoda’s. Mysterious it is!

Tommy, Kellen and Harvey are on the case. And when their classmates start having strange ‘Dwight Sightings’ (sightings of Dwight in which he is Yoda-less and acting WAY too normal), the boys have TWO mysteries to solve. The close they get, the more possible it seems that Origami Yoda will be back . . .

Tom Angleberger is the author of the New York Times bestselling Origami Yoda series, which includes, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back. He is also the author of Fake Mustache and Horton Halfpott, an Edgar Award nominee.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
