Origami Yoda on a Saturday

I'm always excited when a local author does well. Tom Angleberger and wife, Cece Bell, are two of my favorites.

Tom Angleberger's new book is out, and he was doing a local signing at the very awesome independent bookstore, Ram's Head Bookshop. Even though his new book is too old for my five year old daughter, I took her anyway and I bought the book for myself. Tom kindly showed her how to make an origami Yoda. Here are the pictures.

Makenna makes an origami Yoda. Mommy thinks she needs a new camera. These pictures look a little fuzzy.

This week, I get to go to a Debbie Diller conference in Richmond--alone. I will be taking The Strange Case of Origami Yoda with me to read in the hotel.

I did a review of Tom's (aka Sam Riddleburger) first book The Qwikpick Adventure Society. You can read the review here.

I just wanted to post a quick comment. I am a fourth grade teacher in Massachusetts and I read Origami Yoda this weekend. It was fantastic! Clearly this author understands kids! I searched the web for some pictures, and found you!

Thanks! I'm glad you found my blog! I teach fourth graders and I'm sure once they see this book, they will probably be fighting over it. :) I'll read it this week and then take it to school.
