Were you here for Origami Yoda?

This guy was!

A week ago, Tom Angleberger was here to juggle, re-name everyone Larry, teach us how to fold paper into a cool Yoda finger puppet, and read from and sign his new book The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. It was great--I only wish we didn't sell out of books. Don't worry, though, we'll order more!

If you don't know Tom's books (his other awesome books, The Qwikpick Adventure Society and Stonewal Hinkleman and the Battle of Bull Run, were written under the nom de plum Sam Riddleberger), then you're in for a treat when you check out Origami Yoda-- combine middle school antics a la Diary of a Wimpy Kid, a love of all things Star Wars, and a full-on investigation into the advice of one Yoda fingerpuppet, and you have an inkling of just how fun this book is.

Here's what Tom had to say about his book tour (with some good shout outs for Little Shop of Stories!) upon his return home. And here's a great picture of an Origami Yoda sighting at Little Shop of Stories from the Origami Yoda website!
