My nine year old son is not much of a reader a lot of the time, but he has devoured every book in the origami Yoda series. We pre-ordered this one and it was delivered some time when I was at work. By the time I came home in hue he evening, my son was half way through. This series is clever, delightful, and compassionate. I wish there were more books like this for kids of all ages.
I bought this book for my son who absolutely loves origami and Star Wars. This book is full of humorous approaches to origami projects featuring the Star Wars theme. After reading this, you'll never fear Jabba again. My son will sit down for hours reading through the book and creating the many origami projects. He and his friend love working on them together.A very entertaining book for the creative Star Wars fan of any age!
we stumbled upon 2 of this series of books in a yard sale and my son was instantly hooked! he really enjoys the Star Wars theme and he enjoys making the origami versions of the characters, as taught in the books.even if your kids do not like Star Wars, these are nice little books and the origami is fun to learn and make.
Silly, but not overly so. Any Star Wars fan will really like this parody series, which captures many of the "inside jokes" of the movie series. Graphic novel / chapter book combinations are all the rage right now, and this series is hot amongst 9-12 year olds!
Got this for my son and he loves it. I catch him chuckling to himself on the couch as he reads it. He is interested and would rather be reading this than playing video games and that is a huge win for the book. He's read others in the series and likes them all.
Son wanted this very badly. He has been reading the series since we found book 1. He started reading these late because he was already 8 when he began the first one.Jabba was a great addition. He loved it and the series. He has made us puppets and origami over and over.Pros:Easy reading for most ages that can read alone.Great storyDon't have to be a Star Wars fan to love it (but if you are not an Original Star Wars fan you should be ashamed)Really stimulated him not to just read but then create the puppets and draw more. This series has helped his artistic see come outNot just for Boy's. My girl is too young but loves looking at the pictures.Cons:Afraid that the series will end.
Lots of middle grade books have disruptive or mischievous characters. But usually they engage in silly behavior to get attention or just because the narrative requires it. This book is different. The characters here are certainly disruptive, but it's in a surprisingly good cause. I liked this series originally because I thought Angleberger had a nice bead on middle graders and middle grade life, and could create interesting and appealing characters. But with this book he has focused the kids' energies and given them something worthwhile to take a stand on. Did not see that coming. This is subversive and enlightening stuff, and elevates the series way beyond the Star Wars puns and deadpan throwaways, (which were fun enough on their own), to a sort of thinking kids' Zen silliness. A very nice change of pace sort of read.
Clever, funny and cute! My kids love me reading this to them all the time! It's good humor with the benefit of not being a crappy electronic. Kids enjoy it, and parents will too...I do! The force is strong with this one!
