Waiting on The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee

Here's the third book in the Origami Yoda series. The first two were so funny - I know I'm going to enjoy this one. I love that they made Chewbacca into a fortune-teller origami! Also, rhymes with "fortune cookie" so it makes an odd kind of sense.

The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee

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.
