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 happy to say that the majority was right this time and 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.
Now… let’s get down to business…
Folding intructions. Here they are! Just click on each one to see it bigger…
How would you like to be one of the first people on THIS planet to read “Origami Yoda II: Darth Paper Strikes Back?”
If you win this contest you can be. The winner of this contest will receive an ADVANCE copy of the book directly from me long before it is available in stores next Fall. (They’ll have to promise not to give away the INCREDIBLE, MIND-BLOWING ENDING, of course!)
Here’s how to enter: Once you’ve made your own Darth Paper, take a photo of him somewhere interesting…. your school cafeteria, the Corn Palace in South Dakota, the White House, your Grandma’s kitchen, the Death Star…. anywhere you happen to be. The person who sends in the coolest photo wins*. (To be chosen by judges.)
Just send it as an EMAIL ATTACHMENT to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to tell me what state/country the photo was taken in. (And if you can resize it to 800px that would be great!)
No purchase necessary … but you will need to fold a Darth Paper!
