Andy made this box….
… and when you open it …. [SPOLIER ALERT]
… it’s the scene where Dwight throws Origami Yoda in the lunchroom trash can. Tommy’s there, too, to fish out Yoda, wipe off the baked beans and try to refold him.
Here’s a jumbo Origami Yoda from Jon, a cool reader up in Montana:
Darth Maul played Weird Al’s “Y-O-D-A.”
Princess Leia won the costume contest with her cinammon bun hairdo.
The Rancor had its eye on these cookies made by library volunteers.
And here’s the incredible librarian who made it all happen … Cindy Minnick!
Yesterday’s Barnes & Noble visit was one of my best-signings ever. We folded many, many Yodas …
(These camera phone images are terrible. I’m hoping to get some better photos from the B&N folks…)
Matthew is my kid of dude: he wasn’t content to make just one Origami Yoda! He’s got 16 here. If he keeps going at this speed he may catch up with me!
And here’s what Matthew has to say:
And thank you so, so, so, so much for writing The Strange Case of Origami Yoda!!!! Here are some pictures!!! Can’t wait for possible sequel!! Your biggest fan, -Matthew

In case you haven’t read the book yet, fake knuckle-popping is one of Dwight’s special abilities — along with origami, bad Yoda impressions and sitting in holes.
Anyway, I’m afraid the searcher must have left disappointed because I didn’t have the instructions up.
WAIT! Come back! Here they are as drawn by Kellen…
Here’s a reader named Logan with his Origami Yoda! He’s also itching to make an Origami Yoda bookmark, so I sent him the pdf file for it. It’s a little tricky!
Logan also had some nice stuff to say about the book:
“… AMAZING ENDING i think you should make a sequel also i think you are just as good as george you could make your own series like “galaxy wars” it would be amazing …”
