The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett by Tom Angleberger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another fun addition to the Origami Yoda series! As with the others, I had several instances of literally laughing out loud while reading! :)
This time McQuarrie Middle has a big problem - the school did not meet the requirements to pass the STANDARDIZED TESTS!!! Now the school has no elective staff and, well, no elective classes (art, music, LEGO club, etc.). During the time that would normally be elective class meetings, students are subjected to videos and worksheets that are designed to help them pass the test!
Tommy, Dwight, Kellen and friends decide to start a rebellion (at the suggestion of Origami Yoda of course). This time EVERYONE gets to have an origami Star Wars character and they try to recruit students to join the rebel alliance and bring down the Dark Side a.k.a "Funtime" ("learn the FUNdamentals"). Will large numbers of students, mad math skills, and the Force be enough to bring down the program? Find out in The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett!

*I loved the "Sven" reference (a nod to the previous book I read by Angleberger, Fake Mustache).
