The paper "The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger" is a good example of a book review on literature. This is the book report about The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger. The genre of this book is realistic fiction. The book was published in the book of 2010.
The story of this book is about a sixth-grade class. The main characters of the story are Dwight, Origami Yoda, and Tommy. The story revolves around Dwight, who is a weird little boy. The character of Dwight is that of an inner genius but an apparent idiot. His act of creating the Origami Yoda without external help speaks of his unusual smartness. Dwight interacts with his class fellows making use of the very finger puppet. The puppet turns out to be very wise. He impresses the class in the climax of the story with his distinctive sense of prediction and knowledge when he predicts an up-coming quiz, identifies the stealer of the classroom Shakespeare bust, and lends a good piece of advice to a classmate so that he is able to escape embarrassment. One of Dwight’s friends, Tommy wonders how Yoda can be so intelligent while being a finger puppet of a dumb and bland Dwight. Tommy plays the role of a spy and a researcher and prepares a case file about Dwight’s Yoda in an attempt to find out if his advice is worth following. His class fellows help Tommy in his research and he manages to compile a file that develops the novel.
I enjoyed this book very much. I felt it quite resembled Harry Potter. Particularly, the finger puppet Origami Yoda reminded me of the Sorting Hat in Harry Potter. Both of them are alike in their wisdom and prediction, and both pass instructions that play a decisive role in the life of many children. The second cause of the resemblance of the story with Harry Potter is that both are fundamentally about schools and classes. Although there is a lot of difference between the character of Tommy of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Malfoy of Harry Potter, yet Tommy slightly reminds me of him as he tends to study the puppet which happens to be Dwight’s fundamental source of power and influence upon the classmates. Therefore, I guess all those in life with the Harry Potter series must give this book a try as well!
