Aug 13, Laura rated it it was amazing Shelves: I am seriously going to miss these characters. They are excellent examples of kindness, understanding, inclusion, and cooperative problem solving. I’m totally making crouton-tauns! View all 7 comments. Do not believe author Tom Angleberger! Plus the gang will be in eighth grade and then high school. Although all origami is banned, Harvey Cunningham completely gives in to the Dark Side, bringing with him a dried-out pickle fashioned into Emperor Pickletine.
Can the kids bring balance to the force without paper? And is that love in the air? Had that continued, this would not have rated even three stars. But once the students get to D. Aug 14, Angie rated it it was amazing. The Origami Yoda series comes to a conclusion here, with the most amazing plot twist ever!

Sep 27, Craig rated it it was amazing. As the last book in the series, this one was destined to answer the original question that opened the series: Is Origami Yoda thd I wasn’t convinced this could have a satisfying answer, and when Origami Yoda — or rather his origami-free knock-off, Fruitigami Yoda — saved the kids from the Great Paper Airplane Fiasco, I was even less so.
How could there be a logical explanation? But how could this book ;ickletine up a fantasy? So I was bys relieved and touched by the entirely satisfying ending.
In f As the last book in the series, this one was destined to answer the original question that opened the series: In fact, this whole book is an extended satisfying ending.
Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus: Origami Yoda, Book 6
The small details continue to amaze and amuse — how many fruit-based Star Wars names can one man think of? Though disaster looms and sometimes more than looms for much of the book, all the characters have a chance for a final moment in the sun. At the end, you realize you’ll rives these kids. The one false note in the story is Angleberger’s treatment of Mr.
Good Clean Fun, who is a one-note caricature here. I almost went down to four stars for that, but the book left me feeling so good, I stuck at five.
And as always happens, the surprise twist totally surprised me! Now I have to go read the whole series again. Oct 06, Jonathan rated it liked it. Well I had major beef with the previous book in this series and this one helps prove my point. Let me talk about this book first. Taught a good lesson like every book in this series has, but they are starting to get boring.
However I in no way believe even though the cover says “the final book in the series” that this will be the last book. I don’t feel it’s a spoiler to say that, just read the ending and you can’t disagree. But it ;ickletine appear the riees might go in a different d Well I had major beef with the previous book in this series and this one helps prove my point.
But it does appear the series might go in a different direction which is good because it needs to. Okay on to my gripe. For some stupid reason in the last book, “Princess Labelmaker” there is a reference to a boy being gay. I hated this because it came out of nowhere and was mentioned once only to disappear. I asked the question: Well this book still leaves that completely random event still floating out there, because there is no reference to it, in fact I don’t think the boy is even in this story.
So again, I’m still really confused by that in the previous book. Aug 30, Catherine rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved the first 4 books, but was disappointed by book 5, which made me nervous about the final installment in the series.
But, the final book restored my love of Tom Angleberger and the Origami Riees series. It definitely did not disappoint and was a satisfying ending to the adventures of Tommy, Dwight, Origami Yoda and all ridws other characters, both human and origami in nature.
Fun and FULL of laugh out loud moments just ask my husband who got pretty annoyed being in the same room with me wh I loved the first 4 books, but was disappointed by book 5, which made me nervous about the final installment in the series. Fun and FULL of laugh out loud moments just ask my husband who got pretty annoyed being in the same room with me while I was reading.
Aug 18, Dana rated it it was amazing Shelves: Once again, I just love these kids! It never ceases to amaze me how clever Tom Angleberger is. I want to meet this guy! The character that really stole the show for me this time was Mr. Oh, and “Plesiosaur to meet you”–this is genius writing people. May 07, Josiah rated it it was ok.
Rabbski insists the students represent McQuarrie with dignity, which means no origami is allowed on the trip to the nation’s capital.
They’ll have to fend for themselves, but at least their biggest problems are behind them. Harvey smuggles a new origami creation onboard, a dark-robed, pickle-faced guy he calls Emperor Pickletine, and immediately starts bothering the others with the mini emperor’s negative attitude when the chaperones’ backs are turned.
Fortunately, Dwight thought up a way to bring Origami Yoda, at least in spirit. Aware that no paper that can be folded into origami would be permitted on the bus, Dwight brings a bag of Fruit Roll-Ups that he can mold into a passable and edible Yoda likeness. If the worst happens, Fruitigami Yoda is available for counsel, and as the trip progresses it looks more and more like Dwight and friends are going to need the Jedi warrior’s sage advice.
The young McQuarrie “representatives” get into and out of trouble around D. Tommy wishes he could be with Sara, but she’s in a different bus and tour group. Sara chose Rhondella as her partner because they haven’t hung out much since Rhondella found a boyfriend, but the “girls only” day isn’t working out as Sara hoped, and she wishes she could switch and join Tommy.
Serious trouble for the boys is narrowly averted at the Air and Space Museum, but a bizarre request by Fruitigami Yoda puts Quavondo on the hot seat to take a strange action or risk upsetting the Force.
They’ve trusted Yoda so far; why forsake his wisdom now? Quavondo’s leap of faith turns the whole trip around on the way home, transforming a disappointing excursion into a day no one will forget, and shedding light on the behavior of a certain student who has been less than in tune with the Force.
Seventh grade is over, but does that mean Origami Yoda’s adventures are over, too? What will eighth grade look like without the Force guiding Dwight and his friends? I appreciate the brief reference in the story to a Return of the Jedi novel, since such a book by Tom Angleberger was published in for the Star Wars Illustrated Novels trilogy.
I also liked the name of the museum airplane that plays a part in this book, the Bell X-1, surely an homage to the author’s Newbery Honor-winning wife, Cece Bell. Art2-D2’s Guide to Folding and Doodling goes seventh if you include it with the novels.
