Dark times have fallen on McQuarrie Middle School. Dwight’s back—and not a moment too soon. The gang is about toface the FunTime Menace: a new educational program designed to raise students’ standardized test scores. Instead, it’s driving everyone crazy with its obnoxious videos of Professor FunTime and his insidious singing calculator! When Principal Rabbski cancels the students’ field trip—along with art, music, and LEGO classes—to make time for FunTime, the students turn to Origami Yoda for help. But some crises are too big for Origami Yoda to handle alone: Form a Rebel Alliance the students must. United, can they defeat the FunTime Menace and cope with a surprise attack from Jabba the Puppett?

With this latest episode in the explosively popular Origami Yoda series, Tom Angleberger proves once again that he “has his finger puppet squarely on the erratic pulse of middle-school life” (Washington Post).

Quotes & Awards

  • “An entertaining (and surprisingly relevant) addition to a pleasing series.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Star Wars fan or not, the listener will chuckle heartily at the voices of Origami Yoda, aka Dwight, and his friends, Han Foldo, Luke Skyfolder, and Foldy-Wan Kenobi. Dwight and his McQuarrie Middle School buddies are facing their fourth origami challenge. The cast of narrators does Angleberger proud. Once listeners tune in to the fact that the story is written in chapters alternating between the viewpoints of the varying characters, the distinctive voices of the narrators add to the uniqueness of each one. They pull listeners right into the dreaded FunTime classes, the origami planning sessions, and the all-school meetings. The result is wit, fun, and a surprise ending.”

    " My 11-year-old son loved this book. It was the first "long" book that kept his interest the entire way. Due to his dyslexia reading has been a serious struggle for him and thanks to audiobooks he is now able to enjoy the stories while he listens and follows along in his book "
