Finally, I can reveal the secret! Darth Vader is the Star Wars star of the sequel to The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, which will be called…
Darth Paper Strikes Back!
Darth Vader was the strong favorite in the Origami Who poll, beating Han & Chewie, Admiral Ackbar and a Clone Trooper by thousands of votes! So I’m very glad to say the majority was right! Darth will be coming to McQuarrie Middle School along with Dwight, Tommy, Kellen, Sara, Rhondella and just about everybody else from the first book including Origami Yoda.
Want to guess who brings him to school? Dwight? No way! Tommy? Nope. Harvey? No comment!
The book comes out next FALL. In the meantime, I hope you’ll enjoy Horton Halfpott (Spring 2011) and, of course, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda.
